This solar lighting system is ideal for places with no mains electricity such as outhouses, sheds, garages, farms, stables, as well as for camping, travel and any outdoor activities (e.g. a for a yurt). The system is fully independent from the grid and works purely based on sunlight energy or the power stored in the battery.
During the daytime, the 80W solar panel charges a 12V battery inside the control unit, which then provides power to the 4 x 5W 12V LED lights connected via front sockets on the control unit. In addition, there is a standard 5V USB socket for charging mobile phones and USB compatible devices (adaptors for USB-compatible mobile phones are included).
The control unit has a built-in 18Ah Lithium battery with an automatic solar charge controller to manage the charging process and prevent overcharging. The solar input can take 18-25V DC power from any suitable solar panel, or charge from the mains using the SL-CH-3A mains adapter (optional), and the battery can provide enough energy to power 4 LED lights continuously for 9-10 hours, or twice as long if only two LED lights are connected.
The system is very convenient to use and install: the solar panel adapter cable has two standard MC4 connectors for secure connection with the panel output, and each LED light comes with a 5m cable with an On/Off switch. All cables come with connectors for a quick "plug and play" installation.
Installation is very easy: the solar panel or mains adaptor should be connected to the charging socket at the front side of the control box via the correct adaptor wire (included), and 4 x LED light cables should be connected to the front 12V sockets. Then you should turn the control unit switch to ON and the battery will begin charging. Each LED light comes with a separate On/Off switch for your convenience.
