Customer Question
What is the wattage...

What is the wattage used in operation of a 586c unit. Will a 12 watt solar panel help keep 12 volt battery charged? I use my Hummingbird 586c on a small boat for 2 months each summer and trying to find away to eliminate removing and reinstalling the battery to charge it.

Technician's Assistant: What device or product does this involve?

586c sonar

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your 586C?

Do not remember when new unit was purchased

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Using shore power to charge battery

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?
