The battery was not replaced again on August 25th, that is the same battery that will no longer charge.  Doesn’t the scale of battery loss and gain look extreme.  I adjusted the solar panel to get more light, it is in a pretty shady area but it get direct sunlight for a couple of hours everyday.

Do you all think I need a bigger battery or a larger solar panel?
