Solar Chargers Can Be a Great Option

But they can also be a disappointment. This is because for a solar charger to work, the sun has to have full integration with the panel. Please watch the video as it is 8 minutes long and covers all the things that we could discuss here.

My Opinion of the Solar Panels

Solar Panel Charger

I am writing this blog at the end portion of 2023. This is relevant because technology improves so dramatically as time goes on. I feel that these solar panel chargers are a great idea that will really take off in the near future. But, for now, the technology is a little under what is needed for some battery motors. Here is my take on it. In the near future, the batteries will need a lot less power and the solar panel chargers will give off much more energy. When that happens, I feel like it will become a mainstream solution that we will all love.

For now, you need to have a couple of things. The sun needs to be able to hit the panel and you need to have a home situation that will cooperate with this. You currently need the solar chargers to not be blocked by foliage. If you live in a climate that has little sun due to clouds or mountains, the current panels might not allow your batteries to recharge effectively. My bottom line is this. Work with a professional who can give you good advice as to whether these chargers will work in your situation. If you have the right circumstances, you will love this option for your shades.
