Can I connect this charger cable directly to a 12 V battery while operating the the Torqeedo 1003? Will the 12 V battery in turn power the Torqeedo 1003 as I'm using it on my dingy so that I can extend my operating time.
Thanks for your question regarding the Torqeedo 12V/24V charging cable. According to section 6.4.2 on page 79 of the Travel outboard User Manual,
"Charge using a DC power supply in the range of 9.5 V to 50 V.
The DC power supply must be able to provide at least 4 A.
Use the Torqeedo 12/24 V charging cable (item number 1128-00) for charging."
The manual also states, "The battery can be charged during use (charge and discharge at the same time). The power display shows only the power being drawn from the battery in this case. If the charging current is greater than the current drawn by the motor, the power display shows 0 W and the battery is being charged. The charge status display takes into account the charging current as well as the current drawn by the motor."

Will the 1103 outboard charge from either a 12 or 24 volt source with this charging cable? Can I use my existing solar system on my boat to charge the battery? What is max/min voltage for charging?
1. Will the 1103 outboard charge from either a 12 or 24 volt source with this charging cable? Yes, you can use this charging cable to charge the batteries for a Travel 503, 1003 S/L, 1003, 1103 CS/CL and Ultralight 403.
2. Can I use my existing solar system on my boat to charge the battery? Assuming, that the boat's existing solar system has a charge controller that is feeding the house 12/24VDC battery bank system, then you could just use the Torqeedo 12/24V charging cable and plug that into a DC power socket that is feed by the house battery bank. You will need to make sure not to drain the house battery bank by using a battery monitor like the Victron SmartShunt or Victron BMV-712 Smart. The battery montitor will allow you to tell if you are drawing more power from the battery bank than is being added by your charging source (solar, engine alternator, etc).
3. What is max/min voltage for charging? According to page 79 of the Travel Outboard User Manual from Torqeedo, "Charge using a DC power supply in the range of 9.5 V to 50 V. The DC power supply must be able to provide at least 4 A. Use the Torqeedo 12/24 V charging cable (item number 1128-00) for charging."
If you are unsure about the wiring on your boat or it's capabilities, you should consult with a local certified marine electrician.
