I believe this type of panel is not made for that purpose. However, if you find something that is, you need to verify that when the key is off your lighter port is powered. Most cars today it turns off so it won't charge. You might have to hook directly up to the battery somehow.

Does anyone know if the battery charger part of this package is one of those chargers that requires batteries to inserted in pairs only?
Seems I have a number of devices (ok, flashlights, I'm one of those guys) that use 3 AAA batts or 1 AA batt so I often do not have even pairs of batteries that need charging. Many inexpensive charges need the batteries to be in pairs.
Does this one charge the batteries individually so I could pull one out to use and put another one in its place?
