I could use one but I never win.
But that is ok I know I am not lucky.

Will it charge the 12V in my car?
 
My Insight came with a tiny solar panel (unfortunately) fixed to the hood of the car that the previous owner installed as ghetto-ily as possible. I assume it's to top off the 12V battery, but I'm not even sure it's functioning.
Would it be feasible to bungee one of your panels to the top of my car during the day at work, where it sits in the hot Florida sun every day, and then roll it up and throw it in the trunk every night? What kind of connections would I need to make that happen if it's possible?

Yes, but you'd need a dc-dc converter. These panels are made to charge USB devices, and USB runs on 5V. So, the real answer is not real well.

Got it, thanks man!

The more solar the better. The sun shines on all of us.
