Save you money and time, it's a gimmick feature that doesn't do squat.
LOL, I refrained from posting because I felt the same way and figured someone would argue otherwise :lol:
As noted up-thread, it does provide 50-60 ma which is typically enough to provide for the standby currents
of the Leaf's ECUs and also provide a small 12V charging current. Obviously, to consider a retro-fit of the panel
is questionable, but to each their own.
Sure, if I had an SL with the built-in panel then I wouldn't mess with it. But, I definitely won't bother trying to retrofit one to my SV...
