FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does the SunPower Solar Panel hold a charge?
The solar panels only produce power when exposed to sunlight and that power is not stored.
What are the optimal conditions for charging?
Optimal charging conditions include: direct sunlight with the panels angled toward the sun, no clouds, no hanging branches or obstructions to sunlight, no shade covering any of the panels, and no dirt or debris on the solar cells.
How do I obtain maximum output from the SunPower Solar Panel?
To obtain maximum output always try to charge in the optimal conditions listed above and angle the panels toward direct sunlight and continue to adjust the placement of the panels to track the sun's movement throughout the day.
Is the SunPower Solar Panel waterproof?
The solar panels are weather-resistant and will not be harmed if exposed to rain or snow; however, the connection cord is not weather-resistant and must be kept dry.
Can I leave the SunPower Solar Panel outside for continual use?
The SunPower Solar Panel is not designed for continuous outdoor usage. Once you charge your device the SunPower Solar Panel should be folded and stored in a clean, dry area.
Can I use the SunPower Solar Panel to charge other small electronic devices?
Yes - as long as the device you want to charge operates from 18V or less and has a DC power cable. You can connect your device to the SunPower Solar Panel using the included DC input cord. You may also use a solar charge controller, which can be purchased from electronics retailers, to connect your device to the SunPower Solar Panel.
Please note that the SunPower Solar Panel does not have an internal charge regulator as that is a feature of the Freedom™ and C-100 CPAP Batteries; therefore, it is important that you read the charging instructions for your device as overcharging may damage your device's internal battery.
