and a small vehicle 12v battery. is this the correct way to wire it so i can switch on a light, then back to trickle charging? i drew this up easily in www.photofiltre.com it's an excellent freeware if any of you guys can edit it the right way for me, i'd appreciate it..... or DO i need to switch to charge? or do i need a 3 way toggle? i'd also like to add a switch to go to sensor mode for auto on at dusk/off and charging at dawn...is this easy/possible? ......never tried this before.
thanks in advance!

Oh I didn't read the other questions. No you don't need a switch. You can have a load and the panel and the battery just all in parallel and it'll work fine. Assuming your panel has reverse current protection of course.
