Maxsa Solar LED Security Floodlight with rechargeable battery, solar panel, 15-foot solar panel cable, mounting hardware, User Guide.
A: Your solar panel needs to be placed outside in a sunny area and needs to face the southern sky. If it is in the shade it will still charge, but not as well as in the sun. If it is behind glass, it may not charge properly.
A: 15 foot extension cords are available from MAXSA Innovations. You can connect more than one if you need to, however it is recommended that no more than three are used.
A: The light will stay on as long as it detects motion and the battery has power. When fully charged, the battery should be able to provide up to 120 minutes of light in total before it needs to be recharged. If there is no motion, the light will turn off after 10 seconds to one minute, depending on where you set the TIME dial.
A: This light uses a rechargeable 6V 4 Ah sealed Lead-Acid battery. It should last at least 3 years, depending on use. When it is time to replace the battery, you can find a replacement from any battery retailer.
A: You should do an initial charge of three days with the solar panel connected and the light switch in the OFF position. After that, you can switch the light to AUTO. It should charge enough during the day to last through every night.
A: No. This light is motion-activated only. It will stay on as long as it detects motion and the batteries have power. On a full charge, the batteries should last for roughly 90 minutes.
A: This is determined by you. If you want the light turn on during the day and during the night, set the LUX dial towards the graphic of the Sun. If you want it to turn on only when it is very dark out, set the LUX dial towards the graphic of the Moon. You can set it anywhere between as well depending of the level of darkness you desire before the light turns on. NOTE: If you have it set for very dark, any other lights that are nearby may prevent this light from turning on.
A: The light works best between temperatures of 20°F and 120°F. If it’s colder than 20°F, the battery may not function as well, however it will resume normal function once it warms up. The light is designed to withstand normal dirt and water exposure as well, but may be damaged by hurricanes and cannot be submerged in water.
