About the NOCO BLSOLAR5
When you and your vehicle are far away from an AC outlet, what can you do to keep your battery charged? NOCO's BLSOLAR5 is a compact, lightweight charger and battery maintainer that runs on the power of the sun. It'll keep your battery healthy when you're far from a source of electricity.
Safe and versatile
This 5-watt solar battery charger gives you up to 410mA of trickle charging current to keep your battery ready for action. It has short-circuit, open-circuit, and over-current protection to help keep your vehicle safe, and its back-current protection prevents accidental battery drain if the charger is connected at night. The BLSOLAR5 also features IP65-rated protection from the elements, and is designed for outdoor use. And whether the weather is sunny or cloudy, the BLSOLAR5 will produce the power you need.
The charger connects to your vehicle through the 12-volt auxiliary port or by applying the included clamps directly to the battery. If your car disables the port when the ignition is off, you may need to use the GC012 X-Connect adapter (available from NOCO) to charge through the vehicle's OBDII port. NOCO also offers the GC026 6V and GC027 12V X-Connect solar charge regulators, which improve charge performance and provide additional safety protection.
With or without accessories, the BLSOLAR5 gives you the ability to charge from the sun and the freedom to get off the beaten path.

More details on the NOCO BLSOLAR5
Solar Battery Charger & Maintainer: The Noco BatteryLife+ BLSOLAR5 is a 5W/410mA solar battery charger and maintainer for maintaining 12-volt lead-acid batteries where A/C power is not readily available. It provides up to 410mA of trickle charging current directly from the sun to counteract parasitic drains of most vehicles - such as cars, boats, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, RVs, lawn mowers, and more. Its ultra-low profile design makes it simple and easy to install, and completely weatherproof for outdoor use.
Battery Compatibility: The Noco BatteryLife+ BLSOLAR5 is suitable for Wet Cell (Flooded), Gel Cell, AGM, Enhanced Flooded Battery or any Maintenance-Free Battery. The BLSOLAR5 can be used on battery sizes from 1.2 to 20Ah, and can also maintain all battery sizes.
Thin Film Technology: The BLSOLAR5 utilizes Thin Film Technology to convert energy directly from the sun - even in low-angle, low-light, cloudy, and overcast conditions. This thin-film amorphous solar technology makes a homogeneous solar cell configuration for maximum solar output. Its rugged fabricated TCO-coated glass substrate optimizes the optical absorption to allow for a wide-spectrum of solar radiation.
Black Current Protection: Black Current Protection protects against accidental battery drain when connected at night.
Rugged, Low Profile Design: The Noco BatteryLife+ BLSOLAR5 is made from an engineered polymer for high-strength and durability. Its low-profile design improves installation and performance in high-heat applications.
- Waterproof: The BLSOLAR5's unique low-profile design provides a waterproofing barrier; plus dirt, dust, and other elements (rated at IP65).
- UV Resistant: Its also engineered to take the abuse of the sun through the use of color stabilization and UV inhibitors.
Mounting & Installation: The BLSOLAR5 has four external mounting holes in the casing of the battery charger enclosure and comes with four mounting screws to mount the battery charger permanently in a desired location for battery charging. When mounting the battery charger to a fixed location, keep in mind the distance to the battery from the battery charger. The BSOLAR5 features an attached 8' X-Connect cable, plus comes with 22" battery clamps and a 22" car charging cable. Use the existing 12-volt auxiliary port for in-vehicle charging or connect directly to your car battery.
