Applications and Charge Times
- The most common application for this kit is to charge smartphones and tablets via our V15 battery. Some, but not all, Android smartphones will charge directly from the panel via our F3511-MicroUSB adapter. This system will not charge digital cameras that require you to remove the battery for charging.
- Approximate Charge Time from 6 Watt Panel**
- Voltaic V15 Battery: 5.5 hours
- Smartphone via Voltaic battery: 3.5 hours
- Smartphone direct (when possible): <3 hours
- **For maximum power output, orient the panels towards the sun. When not angled towards the sun, output will be reduced. Dirt and scratches on the face of the panels will reduce the amount of light hitting the solar cells. Clean the panels with a damp non-abrasive cloth. Charge times are estimated based on optimal conditions and may increase in cloudy weather, high temperatures, or when panels are not angled towards the sun.
