Hello!

My GT's 12v power socket has no power inside if I turn the car off and take out the key.
Question: If I buy solar battery charger and put the plug into the 12v socket if I know the battery will not be charging...because there is no connection between car's battery and 12v socket if the car key is out?

Solar battery charger like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-Battery-Charger-Solar-Power-Panel-12V-200mA-3-5W-/140611646139?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20bd1b72bb

Thank you for your opinion.

If you are asking if it will work, no it won't.
It obviously needs to be a live socket.

I got one recently that came with separate 'croc' clips that attach directly to the battery...

I would suggest a good charger like the CTEK MXS 5.0 instead of solar, unless you don't have access to a power point near where your car is parked.

It will work from any 12v connection in the car. Does not have to be directly connected to the battery.
