I purchased one less then two months ago and the red light failed to come after the first rain. I know of no way to prove whether or not it is still effective! The connections have been checked, rechecked on two different battery's!

This is great for maintaining a charge or charging up a battery from weekend use. I live in a condo and park my boat in a sotrage lot. There is no electrical hook ups there so this was the perfect thing for me. Especially when I go camping. It's durable and waterresistant, meaning that if it rains and water collects on it it won't go bad.

I have used this product only a few times but allready enjoy the benefits. The choice to charge my battery while fishing or sitting at home. No more extension cords or charges to carry or move around. It is small and light-weight which makes it very easy to move around the boat.

I'm looking at attaching this to a garage where my boat sits for 9 months out of the year, but the roof is 20 feet high. I would need about 30 feet I'm guessing. Is extending the cable length possible?
The wire that comes connected to it appears to be about a 18 gauge wire. If you were to add 25' to 30' of 14 gauge wire by using very tightly installed wire nuts or, in my opinion, soldering this wire extension & insulating the joints, I don't think you'd have any problems. I would be more concerned about debris covering or breaking this panel.
The short answer is: you're probably just fine. There is inherent voltage drop that will happen, but the amount of loss will be negligible. I would be more concerned with ensuring you don't go on vacation and find a burned down boat and/or garage. Use a good Deutsch style connector and make sure everything is weatherproofed.
IF YOU MEAN TWO CHARGERS FOR TWO BATTERIES ,WHY NOT.OR EVEN TWO UNITS FOR ONE BATTERY AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT EXCEEDING THE VOLTAGE LIMITS AND JUST GIVING IT A HARDER CHARGE LIKE A PLUG IN CHARGER WOULD DO FOR 2AMPS/10AMPS.(slow or fast)
I lost the instructions that came with the unit. I remember briefly something about it being properly connected if the light is green and not connected/ problems if its red. But I'm pretty sure I connected it fine, and it's still red. Does this mean that it's still charging, or that there is something wrong with the unit?
