Looking for a way to use solar panel to trickle charge the EGO battery.

Judd, your best bet is probably to charge the battery with Ego's charger hooked up to a battery/inverter/solar panel setup.  I know that's a lot more complicated, but trickle charging with a solar panel would have its own challenges, like stable voltage supply and lack of cell balancing.  You would need, at minimum, some sort of charge controller that had an appropriate cutoff voltage.

You would also void any warranty on the battery.
