Solar Powered Caravan at Silverstone

Review of the Ring Solar Charger RSP600

Every year we hitch up the caravan and head off to Silverstone for a long weekend at the British F1 GP. One of the first, essential jobs after arriving at Litchlake Farm camp site (which is basically just a big field!) is to attach the generator to keep the battery topped up. Not this year though! This year we took along a Solar Battery Maintainer from Ring Automotive (RSP600).

After setting up the caravan on the Thursday morning, we placed the solar powered charger unit on the roof of the caravan and connected it straight to the caravan leisure battery with the long lead included in the box. There’s also an option to charge/maintain the car battery via the cigarette lighter or power socket if required. Once connected, it was a case of ‘fit and forget’ until we were due to leave on Monday.

Result: Brilliant! The solar charger kept the leisure battery topped up all weekend and even managed to keep all our phones and devices charged as well. And the best bit – we didn’t need the generator on at all! This is one fantastic bit of kit that we can definitely recommend.
