    There were a lot of reviews/questions regarding if this product had a diode to prevent the car battery from draining. I performed an accurate test to verify this.Using a multimeter set to continuity measure, I tested the solar panel. By connecting the leads via the positive clip, the multimeter would be trying to power the solar panel. There was no continuity! When I connected the leads the other way (positive lead to the negative clip) there was continuity. This means that the solar panel has a diode that blocks in current coming from the positive clip (the same way a car battery would be trying to charge this thing).Then I moved onto the 12v socket connector. There is an LED and a resistor inside. THIS NEEDS TO BE CUT OUT/REMOVED. If this is left plugged in overnight, the car battery will be drained. With the resistor and LED removed, the 12v socket connector does not consume any electricity. I have yet to test this on a sunny day, so I do not know how much voltage/current it will output.

    This works great for trickle charging my truck battery, but I’ve just learned how to use it as a USB solar charger..If you buy a 12v power (cigarette lighter) extension with two or three outputs, you can plug the solar charger into one socket, and a car USB adapter into the other(s). You don’t have to plug anything into the cigarette lighterPower will flow from solar panel into one socket providing power to USB adapter in other socket.
