This solar panel cannot be connected directly to a DC fan. If both the DC fan and this solar panel are connected to the same 12 volt battery, the output from the panel is enough to keep the fan running without the battery's charge diminishing.

This solar panel includes 6' of wire connected to battery clamps. The wire length can be extended by splicing in additional wire. The minimum gauge wire required is AWG #16 or #18. You can use wire that is one gauge lower(#16) to minimize power loss. Northern Tool does not carry wire for that application.

This charger can only charge 12 volt batteries. Northern does not have any solar chargers to work on a 6 volt battery. We have a few AC chargers that can be used for 6 volt.

Yes you can hook it up to the battery. The power inverter will emit a beeping sound when the batteries go below a set voltage amount.
I think one 7 watt solar panel is a bit small in watts to use it to charge a vehicle battery in less it is more or less just a Trickle charger for more than one day.. However, if you do want it to do that you need to get a Charge Controller of some type shown in the catalog. It may take a couple days to charge a vehicle battery using this small unit.
I have three 7 watt panels going through a charge controller and charging two Aux batteries in my Motor home.
I keep the Power Inverter hard wired to the batteries, however I do not use the inverter unless the batteries are fully charged.
It takes my three panels up to two days to fully charge them.

This solar panel can be connected to a battery when a power inverter is being used. This panel provides the battery with 7 watts per hour in ideal conditions(placed in direct sunlight, not cloudy). Your battery charge will drop accordingly if the items running off your inverter draw more than 7 amps.

Two of these seven watt solar panels can be hooked up to a single battery. To be safe a charge controller should be used to prevent over charging.

Yes, but what would work better is two batteries, hooked positive to positive, negative to negative, brought to a full charge, and THEN put a panel on each battery (the same as two on one battery).
The reason I suggest two batteries, is the deeper a battery is discharged, the more current it takes to bring it back up to a full charge. Adding a second battery will buffer the drain you put on your setup, allowing for a faster full recharge.
