Solar Panel for a Lift Tech

Recommended Posts

dtm8119

Looking at picking up a Lift Tech 12 Volt for the boat lift this year. Looking at solar panels they offer and wow, they are a spendy piece!

I was just wondering if any of you have found a cheaper option for a 15-20 watt solar panel to use that you've had success with?

This puppy will do the trick for about half the price: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200328565_200328565

I have had one of these on my DIY powered 2-place PWC hoist (using $50 Harbor Freight ATV winches) for the last couple of years, and it has done a great job.

That one doesn't have a charge controller, so it could overcharge your battery. If you got that one, I would recommend getting something like this: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200578587_200578587
