Default Solar panel

Hi everybody, i have a 2006 club car and what im looking for is a solor panel to run my power drive 2 battery charger. Has anyone used one before or have any info on it. I use my cart for work and it sits outside for 9 hours without being on a charger. Any suggestions?

Won't happen! You can get a solar panel that will trickle charge your pack but there is no solar panel that would fit on your cart that would run your charger!!!

Something like this might work for you also.

So in "charger" terms - the first example implies that it produces about 2 amps of charge current, and the second approx 1 amp at 48v.

A roof sized solar panel can generate around 200 to 250 W of power at best. That should be more like 4 amps at 48V.

Those vendor ads say 105 watts and 45 watts as their "peak sun" performace. That's why I thought 2 & 1 amps accordingly.

The 80 inch roof one is about 245 watts I think,...

Here's one way of doing it. Put the solar panels on top of your garage/workshop/studio.

PS The only thing solar panels mounted on a golf cart are good for is "Show and Tell" day at the Country Club.
