Can I connect the solar panel when the car is on?
All of the info I had read tells me NOT to have it connected while the vehicle is running...
Will this charge through my power box while operating my trolling motor if it is \"not obstructing my view\"?
It will charge your power battery. But for safety reasons, the use of this solar panel is NOT recommended while a vehicle is in use. While the vehicle is in
use, it is recommended to store the solar panel in the glove compartment or under the seat to prevent the panel from obstructing proper and safe use of the vehicle.
Anyone have success with this on a motorcycle?

I hook into my cigerette lighter and battery went dead.. is it better to clip to battery terminals?
There is no difference UNLESS you have a foreign car that disconnects the "Power Port" when the ignition is OFF. My Subaru turns off the power port so I have to hook directly to the battery.
