This 1.5 Watt Amorphous Solar can be used indoors. To obtain the 1.5 watts you will need to have direct sunlight.

Yes if you place it in a window where it can get sunlight most of the day, the more the better. It will not charge without sun, hence "solar panel charger."

It will work, but it will not perform as well. It should be mounted in full sun.

This solar panel has built in overcharge/discharge diode protection. You do not need a charge controller in solar panels under 15 watts.

answer 2
You don't need a charge controller. It does not put out enough current to overcharge a car battery. It's only 1.5 watts.

Stay Connected?

Can the solar oanel stay connected while the battery is in use? For example, while starting my truck?
Also, what does discharge/charge protection? Can the panel drain the battery in low light conditions?
