We recently purchased this solar charger for our bow hunting trip to keep my battery charged in my camp trailer. It did not keep my battery charged and I had it hooked up the entire week. It is not what it was made out to be. I would not recommend this solar charger to anyone and I am hoping Bass Pro will take it back and give me a full refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dsleighton Great for what it is
As a maintenance charger, this thing is great. However, don't expect to charge a battery with this, even over a period of a week in full sun the gain would be negligible

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?
