Review for customer service only, have not used the chargers yet. Stay tuned.
Website had some minor glitches on the "Payment" link, but contacted the Customer Service # and purchase was completed in quick, friendly manner. Will continue to use etrailer.com for trailer / RV parts.

Despite several falls to the ground, bad weather and blistering sun, the chargers have help up well and are still producing a consistent trickle charge to the baatteries. Wont help discharged batteries, but work well with good charged batteries.



by:

I have a dump trailer and when I’m not using it, I connect the solar panel so the battery doesn’t run dead. It’s been working great.

Still Great , same battery it’s done it’s job!



by:

This solar battery charger has done a great job keeping my snowmobile battery charged all summer long. The area my trailer is parked in only gets direct sunlight for part of the day but the solar panel still takes in enough sunlight to get the job done even in partial shade. I made a frame and stand that the solar panel mounts to and attached the assembly to my trailer, the whole assembly is easily removable. I plan to get a few more of these for keeping other batteries charged like the one in my boat and my spare vehicles.



by:

Excellent product. I put this charger on my dump trailers and it keeps the battery topped off even after extensive use. I definitly recommend this product.



by:

Excellent product. Works great and is an awesome addition for any recharging needs.



by:

I love this small solar panel. Using it to keep my Rv battery tapped off over the winter. It worked perfectly last winter.



by:

Had to wait 3 months for item to be in stock. When it did finally ship it was dead on arrival. Extremely poor quality. Do not recommend.

After the longer wait I can understand that you wanted to use it right away. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you to assist.

Using this charger on my RV. It only keeps the batteries up for a week or ten days. I'm disappointed in this system.

I know that this charge is meant to trickle charge the batteries. I was not sure by what you meant with it only keeps the batteries up for week. Can you explain in more detail?



by:

This still works great 1 year later. I have it hooked up to a remote battery that operates the electric jack on my equipment trailer. I have not had 1 issue with the battery being too low to lower/raise my trailer for attachment to my truck.



by:

product does exactly as advertised. Nice unit!!



by:

The product has been working great



by:

I just installed it. That was easy.

But
it didn't come with any instructions. The LED is blinking, so I don't know if that is good or bad. I'll have to come back in a week to see if the batteries got charged or not.

The LED blinking means that it is doing its job!

Excellent product- great service



by:

I have had this on a utility trailer for the past year to keep power tools charged. It has been great. Just outfitted a 2nd trailer with the same system.



by:

Didnt charge



by:

excellent service & product



by:

Well I finally got the panel mounted on a removeable holder much like the picture on your web site. Once I recharged my RV battery to full charge this panel has had no problem keeping the battery charged while not in use. I highly recommend this panel for this purpose.



by:

Works great, easy install



by:

Works great! We put it on a tilt bed trailer that we use for our UTV and ever since we installed it we have not had a dead battery. The battery usually dies over the winter but not this year! We will be ordering more in the near future for more trailers.



by:

Just what the Doc. ordered..This little thing is great, bought it for a dump trailer about a year ago and I have not had any trouble with the battery since. A good hot battery when you get to the trash dump is a must, unloading by hand is a pain. I plan to buy more for other equipment, lawnmower, chipper, tractor its just a great battery maintenance tool for your battery.



by:

Picked this solar charger for 2 reasons, first was the price....second was the 7.5 volt charge vs 5.0 like most others. This was easy to setup and with the Arizona sun, it keeps my 12 v battery charged for my winch and power jack. I bought a second one for my other trailer



by:

It worked just as expected and was a high quality choice from etrailer. It was nice that this site didn’t have a million options to choose from and this one works!



by:

Fast shipping on a great product. Looking forward to seeing how it works out !

haven't tried yet but looks good

  • Could Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR be Used as Trickle Charger for Towed Vehicle
    Yes you could use the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR to charge a battery being towed by a motorhome. The output of this is 7.5 watts.

  • How Does Bright Way Solar Battery Charger part # BRW54FR Connect to Battery
    Yes, the red wire of the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger part # BRW54FR does run to the positive battery post of the battery and the black goes to the negative. It can also be used on a motorhome as well.

  • Troubleshooting Battery Draining With Bright Way Solar Battery Charger Installed
    The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR would not be able to drain the battery on your gooseneck trailer. Something else must be draining the battery while it is hooked up. This is designed to trickle charge and keep your battery topped off. If something else is pulling power, it will outpace any charging from the solar panel and might appear as though this is draining the battery.

  • Solar Panel Battery Charger
    The perfect solution is the Bright Way # BRW54FR Solar Battery Charger. Small, cost effective, versatile and easily up to the job. I personally installed this charger on my trailer last October and it kept the batteries (two 6-volt, 235 Amp Hour) topped off all winter long. Lots of options for installation. Comes with it's own inline charge controller. Just hook up to batteries - face towards sun - all done.

  • Does 7.5 Watt Bright Way Solar Battery Charger Need to Be Disconnected When Hooked to Tow Vehicle
    Great question! You will be fine leaving the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR connected to your trailer battery bank while connected to your tow vehicle. Neither source should provide enough power to overcharge your bank. The only time I would worry about disconnecting the solar panel kit is if you're going to be driving around a lot on any given day or if you'll be going on a road trip. In theory you should still be okay to leave it connected but I always like to stay on the...

  • What Does Yellow Light of BWG Solar Charger Mean
    I reached out to the folks at Bright Way, who said the flashing yellow light on the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR means the battery is connected and charging normally.

  • Solution for Charging Breakaway and Trailer Battery With Bright Way Solar Battery Charger
    In order to charge both your breakaway battery and the trailer battery you will need 2 of the # BRW54FR. These batteries cannot be wired together since they will have different amp hour ratings. This means it is not possible to use the single panel to charge them both at the same time. If you want to stick with a single panel you would have to unhook it from one battery and attach it to the other as needed.

  • What Are the Dimensions of the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger and Maintainer
    The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger and Maintainer - 12 Volt # BRW54FR is 9" long x 10-1/2" wide x 1/8" deep.

  • Best Solar Panel for Keeping Breakaway Battery Charged
    I have a solution for you but you won't be able to get enough power off of the center pin. That's the reverse circuit and it has the least amount of voltage. You won't be able to charge both your break away system and your marine battery off of the accessory circuit either. I recommend using the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger - 7.5 Watt Solar Panel item # BRW54FR to keep your breakaway battery charged and then using the accessory circuit to charge your marine battery. I have linked a...

  • Will the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger Work with Two Separate Batteries
    The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger part # BRW54FR is for a single battery or a single bank of batteries (12 Volt Only). If you have multiple batteries or multiple battery banks then you'd need to hook up a solar panel to each depending on your goal and power needs.

  • Can The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR Be Used In The Rain
    Yes, The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR will work when it is raining. Photovoltaic panels can use direct or indirect sunlight to generate power, though they are most effective in direct sunlight. Solar panels will still work even when the light is reflected or partially blocked by clouds. Rain will actually help to keep your panels operating efficiently by washing away any dust or dirt. I attached a review video link below.

  • Will Bright Way Solar Battery Charger BRW54FR Overcharge Battery
    The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger - 7.5 Watt Solar Panel # BRW54FR has a controller, so it won't overcharge your battery. I have added links below to a couple video reviews for you to check out as well of the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger - 7.5 Watt Solar Panel # BRW54FR.

  • Way to Keep Trailer Breakaway Battery Topped Off When in Storage
    It sounds like you are asking about how to test the breakaway batteries on your trailer. I attached a help article that covers how to do exactly this on this page. The battery will get a low maintenance charge anytime it's connected to your tow vehicle but if you wanted a way to keep the batteries topped off when parked without having to think about it you could use a solar charger like the part # BRW54FR.

  • Will the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger Work with Group 27 Batteries
    The Bright Way Solar Battery Charger part # BRW54FR will work on a group 27 battery as they are 12 volt and meet the 5 or more amp hour minimum. Please note, this won't charge a battery from dead but rather make sure it stays topped off.

  • Will 7.5 Amp Bright Way Solar Battery Charger Keep Group 24 Battery Topped Off During Storage
    Hey Sean! As long as you don't have anything placing a draw on the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR, and the 4-6 hours of sunlight is unrestricted then this kit will be just fine for keeping your Group 24 battery topped off.

  • How To Hook Up Bright Way Solar Battery Charger To Two 6 Volt Batteries
    Yes, the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger part # BRW54FR can be used on 6 volt batteries but only if they are attached in series to bring the total to 12 volts. In which case, you would attach the two cables from the panel to the outgoing lines of the battery bank.

  • Can BRW77FR Be Wired To The Battery In Conjunction With A Solar Charger
    The problem to watch out for, is not the voltage, it's the current (cfm). If your battery recommends 30a max charge current and both of your chargers are rated at 15a, you're good to use them both at the same time. If your chargers are both 30a units, then you could damage your battery. Since both the Solar # BRW54FR and wall charger # BRW77FR are 7.5 Watts I don't see there being an issue. The wall charger has a cut off when the batter is fully charged and the solar will maintain the the...

  • Recommended Solar Panel to Charge a Breakaway Battery
    Yes, there is! You can use the 2.5-Watt Solar Battery Charger # PTW2997 you were looking at. However, this has alligator clamps so it will be a bit more difficult. A better option would be to install the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger item # BRW54FR due to it having terminal rings. The connections won't come disconnected while you are using your trailer. Your breakaway battery just needs to be a 12-volt battery with at least 5 amp-hours.

  • Is There Trailer Breakaway Kit With Solar Charger
    You can add a solar charger separately to a trailer breakaway kit, but there isn't a kit with an included solar charger. So what you can do is add either the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR or 2.5-Watt Solar Battery Charger # PTW2997.

  • How Do I Keep My Trailers Break Away Battery Charged When In Storage?
    For maintaining your trailer battery I recommend using a Duracell Battery Charger and Maintainer # DU87FR. This will plug into a standard wall outlet and charge/maintain your battery to help extend the battery life. If you park your trailer where you do not have easy access to power the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR can be used to charge the battery. This can be mounted to part of the trailer and is also easily removable with the 2 prong in line plug. If you store your...

  • I Need a Battery To Operate The Jacks On My Slide In Truck Camper
    I recommend a Bright Way Deep Cycle RV Battery # BRW34FR. This AGM battery is sealed and does not require the maintenance of a traditional lead acid battery. When not in use it is important to provide a battery charge maintainer to ensure the battery voltage does not drop to low. A Bright Way Solar Battery Charger # BRW54FR will provide up to 7.5 watts of charge from the sun. A Snap-Top Battery Box with Strap # 329-HM300BKS will protect the battery from the elements as well as provide...

This will allow you to connect to your existing battery but isolate it from being drained by the hydraulic ramp. You do have the option of adding a Momentary Switch # 37213845 if you want to be able to pull power from your 2nd battery in the event the ramp battery dies.

    Both the CTEK US 0.8 Universal Battery Charger with Pulse Maintenance part # CTEK56865 and the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger and Maintainer part # BRW54FR would work well for this application. I prefer the solar option as it wouldn't require shore power. As an alternative I would instead use just the Hopkins Engager Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit with Built-In Battery Charger part # 20400. Since you're already going to be installing a breakaway kit why not one with a built in...

  • Does Red Indicator Light Blink When Bright Way Solar Battery Charger is Charging
    It looks like the red LED on the Bright Way Solar Battery Charger - 7.5 Watt Solar Panel # BRW54FR is actively blinking when it's charging the battery so if it's still on then that would indicate it's sending a charge. It's worth noting that this setup is a trickle charger which basically means it's designed to keep your battery topped off during storage. If you're wanting something that has a bit more power as well as a way to monitor and adjust the charge power I recommend checking out...
