Steal My Sunshine

I was in Maplin's looking for miniature spade terminals and saw they had a sale on solar panels, must have been the recent sunny weather I guess. Anyway they had a big 2.4 watt one at £25 and smaller 1.5 watt ones for a tenner. Now, thinks I, two 1.5 watt panels makes 3 watts for £20, which is better value for money and I already know that solar panels can be quite merrily connected in parallel. So I bought 2 of the smaller ones to use to trickle charge the car and back-up batteries.
