Is it safe to leave an InReach connected to a solar panel for weeks at a time?

I wanted to spec out getting a small solar panel, and just plugging the InReach (Explorer+) in, and leaving it there. Every day it would be topped up from the panel.

What I'm wondering is: is this bad for the battery? Can anybody see any other problems with this plan? Just stick it in tupperware, pop it on the roof, and leave it running continuously?

  • Specs say charging temperature range is 32 to 113 F. Operating range -4 to 140 F. You need to be careful to avoid letting it get too hot in that container. 

    I don't know how this would impact the lifetime of the battery. Unless there's a really good reason (something better than "it's convenient"), I probably would not do this myself. Better off connecting it only when it needs a charge.
