American Hunter Feeder Accessories - Solar Charger with Mount
Excellent product. Easy to install. Allows 6 volt batteries to last 3 years on average.
Stop buying new batteries every 3 to 5 months.

I have never had a problem with any of Bass Pro, but I strongly advise them to look at this item. You can't use the mounting bracket because how poorly its made.I dropped 1 of the mounting brackets and it broke. Not enough hardware to mount totally had to buy material to make new mounts plus screws to attach it to feeder. I called Bass Pro and complained already, also called American hunter and told them how much I thought of this charger.

Good and Bad
I have purchased three of these units, and with mixed results. The panel itself is good and is able to maintain the batteries in both feeders and cameras. The only drawback is the mounts have not endured the squirrels sitting on them, the plastic has broken on two of the three and had to be modified to hold the panel in place. Zip ties to the rescue!This is the replacement for a cheaper and better panel offered a couple of years ago.

Having had this thing hooked up to batteries for a week, the batteries showed no signs of charging at all. The solar "charger" was delivered in one of those ridiculous plastic packages, but there were no assembly or operating instructions included. I'm still going to give it another chance, but since there is no indicator light to give a clue if anything is happening, I would say it's a bust and I will be returning it soon.
