Does not work – Solar Power Panel Auto Car Battery Charger Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
relatively cheap compare to other easy to use
Cons:
My old car is just sitting in the driveway waiting to be sold. I bought the solar panel charger hoping that it would keep my battery alive. Prior to using this solar panel my car battery was fine. There are 2 ways to use this solar panel. You can either plug it in the cigarette lighter socket if it 'always live' or use the aligator clips and connect directly to the battery. I opt to connect directly to battery because I thought that it would work better. I did not drive the car for approximately 6 weeks and the battery is dead. The solar panel charger did not help keep the battery charge.
Other:
I should have at least try to start the car every week.
Bottomline:
did not work as intended for me
