I was really excited when I bought this. I was going to use it for camping cause it is so light and portable.
However I had to test it for home use before a camping trip. There is no problem at all with the 7.5W solar Panel. In fact it puts out around 18V DC. The PowerPak is well thought out with 5V USB port and two 12V socket port for small gadgets but the problem is that there is no indicator on how much charge the PowerPak holds so it is all guessing.
My first unit died on me when I overused it in a week because there is no indicator on how much charge is left. After talking to a customer service rep at Nature Power, she told me never let it fall below a certain level. Well what level? Because again there is no indicator for how much juice the PowerPak has. She said it was ok to continuously overcharge it from the solar panel.
Returned it and got a new one. This time I followed all directions given to me by the company but still it doesn't...
These use Sealed Lead Acid batteries which are permanently damaged if left to sit for long periods of time without regular charging or by running them down to low. These have been left in a warehouse for too long. The internal battery cannot be revived. The solution is to open the case, take out the battery, buy a replacement battery and install it. This involves removing 6 screws and then disconnect the two wires that go to the battery. A new battery costs about $ 15 (+shipping). If you're not wiling or able to do this, then don't buy. Very few of these units work as is.
The blue light on the solar shows that the panel is working correctly. When this attached to the power pack, the light by the input connector will help you align the panel for max output. The light will first come on dimmly with an input of 4 volts, and will get brighter as the input voltage rises to about 16 volts. Substitute a power supply for the panel, to check for proper operation. This will most...
First, there's no real manual for this product. The instructions are very simple, but there's more to this product than is described in the manual. Specifically, any kind of statement about battery life, best practices for longest lifetime, and any details about operations, as in what does it mean when the red light goes on and blinks?
It soon became clear why there's no manual. Because this product is a joke. Specifically, the battery pack. The solar panel itself seems pretty rugged. And a cluster of LEDs is pretty hard to do wrong. But the battery is a joke. After one good, long use, which probably drew down the battery all the way, there's no capacity left. If there was a metering system to keep you from running the battery down too low, what's the point? Since it only has a nominal 2.6 amp hours, and you can't (I'm guessing, since there is no meter and no specs) use more than a third or half of that, it's basically useless.
