I contacted the solar charger company and they say that I can put two units in series to maintain a 24 volt system.

Lin,

Did they happen to say if that applies to all chargers?

No, they were only talking about their solar charger.  I think that it would work in this case because the solar charger is roughly the same as a battery-- it has its output.  An electrical battery charger is more complex and may, in some ways be adjusting its behavior in response to feedback.  The best way to be safe about a particular device is to call that companies tech support.  In most cases, they are very helpful.

Lin,

Thanks. I agree that it would not be wise to series any chargers without asking the company. I think I'll stick to my separate charging for now.
