Frequently Asked Questions
How do I use the Sun to charge my Restore?
Place your Brunton under direct and bright sunlight with the solar PV facing upwards and angled at the Sun. There is never any need to press any buttons or connect any cables. The Brunton's charge indicator light may blink green, but this can be hard to see under direct sunlight.
How long does it take to charge my Restore via solar power?
It is not simple to determine specific charge times for solar items. It is a very complicated subject and is influenced by many factors, including cloud cover, atmospheric conditions, season of the year, time of day, shade, shadows and the positioning of the charger, as well as your position on the planet. The Restore has 2200 milli-amp battery and comes with two (2) built-in 100 milli-amp solar panels. On average, if the Restore was completely out of power, it would take roughly 11 hours of sunlight to fully recharge it.
My Restore is not charging correctly via solar power - what should I do?
Your Brunton photovoltaic coverts sunlight into electricity whenever exposed to sunlight, but depending on many variables, you should reposition and adjust your Brunton charger to face the sun directly to maximize solar power collection. The Sun is usually the most powerful between the hours of 10am and 2pm. Any variables or obstructions that block sunlight - such as like shade or cloud cover will reduce effectiveness and increase charge times. Your Brunton charger is optimized for direct and full sunlight.
Can I charge my Brunton charger through a window?
Sure, you can - but charging through glass or windows blocks some of the solar energy from reaching your device and thus greatly reduces efficiency. If you plan on charging through a window, make sure the glass is as clean as possible. UV resistant glass further hinders effectiveness. Brunton does not encourage leaving your Brunton charger on your car's dashboard without supervision. The Adventure-armor can be damaged by extreme temperatures.
