Solar charger size - trolling motor battery
I have a 12V battery in my 12 foot O'Day to run a 30lb thrust MinnKota trolling motor. My battery is a small one but works great for short to medium runs in and out of the cove to open water. It has the following specs:
AMP HOURS 28AH
BURST AMPS 1000A
I would like to be able to recharge the partially depleted battery after a weekend of use and would have 4-5 days to allow it to re-charge between weekends. Will a less expensive solar trickle charger (like a $49.00 5W Sun Force I found on Amazon) do this for me?
