Important Notes

If the panel is wet, wipe it down before storing it in a cool dry environment.

 

All connections must be solar positive (red) to battery positive and solar negative (black or blue) to battery negative. Reversing can damage the solar panel. Consult your battery manufacturer if you have questions about the specifications of your battery.

How to charge
  1. Set the panel on the ground (or other surface) with the solar side facing up and pointed towards the sun.

  2. Use the grommets on each of the corners and a tie cord to hold the panel in place and reduce loss or damage from high winds.

  3. Connect the appropriate accessory and cable for the type of device you will be charging.

Electronics:

  1. Connect the 12V Female Car Charger Adapter (RA-2) (not included) to the panel.

  2. Use your own USB car charger adapter to connect your device to the RA-2 or use a 2.4A Dual USB 12V Adapter (RA-14B) (not included) to charge USB electronics.

Selecting a battery:

  • Soltronix Solar Panels are compatible with all 12V flooded lead-acid and AGM batteries (10Ah or larger are recommended) and many LiFePO and Li-ion batteries (consult battery manufacturer to confirm solar compatibility).
