Using Your Sol Seeker
Whether you're a solar novice or a seasoned sun soaker, keep reading to get the most from Mother Nature's juice.
Before You Solar Play
Charge your Sol Seeker at home before its solar debut. Think of it as liquid courage for your sun-soaked adventures
2. Use Protection
To keep your Sol Seeker's Napa leather exterior looking stunning for years to come, pamper it with a high-quality leather protector and conditioner before its first use
3. Read The Signals
Those little lights on your battery aren’t just for show, they’re the signals telling you how much juice you’re holding and how hot your connection with the sun really is.
When the lights flash from the top to the bottom and repeat, this means you’re getting some power, but not as much as you could be. Check the weather and windows, reassess your angles or prepare for patience.
Each of the four lights represent a 25% charge level. One solid light indicates up to a 25% charge, two show 25-50% charged, three 50-75%, and four solid lights means you’re 75-100% charged. The solo blinking light shows the 25% you’re currently working on.
1. Get Connected
Plug the panels into the power bank when you're ready to store some rays. You'll see the micro cable attached to the panels, ready for a hot connection.
2. Go Slow
Make sure the battery warms up to the sun by unfurling the panels at a leisurely pace. This prevents premature activation of the built-in battery protections. If it shuts down, simply close back up, and try again—no rush.
3. Find the Right Position
For peak performance, your Sol Seeker needs direct sun. It will still store power on overcast days but the brighter the better!
4. Save Before You Spend
Stock up on sun before plugging in your devices. If you are taking more power than you’ve stored, you won’t get more than a quickie charge.
Typically, your Sol Seeker battery will need around 4 sunny hours for a full charge. However, this can vary depending on the sunlight's intensity and other conditions. Don't hesitate to give your devices a quick top-up even if you've only had an hour or two in the sun!
While it might seem like a bright idea to charge by the window, windows can act like SPF50+ for your solar charging. They block a significant amount of the UV rays essential for optimal solar charging. It's always best to have direct sunlight or prepared to be patient.
Your Sol Seeker is a fan of the sun, not so much of the rain. It's essential to keep it dry to ensure its longevity and best performance.
Absolutely! While the sun is our primary power source, you always have Plan B: charging via an outlet. So even when the skies are grey, your power needs are covered.
The sun might clock out, but your adventures don't have to. Detach the power bank after sunset and use it as a portable battery. The energy fun doesn't end just because it's night.
Size truly does matter when it comes to solar. Our design ensures the optimal balance between battery capacity and panel size. This means you spend less time sunbathing and more time enjoying its charge.
Solar charging taps into the power of the sun, which, although abundant, can vary in intensity throughout the day. Outlet charging relies on a constant supply of electricity. So while solar might take a bit longer, remember you're harnessing Mother Natures natural energy and it's worth it.
