EARTH FRIENDLY
Oregon Scientific™ proudly presents +ECO Clima Control,
an environmental-friendly weather-monitoring clock that
converts solar energy into its source of power via a solar
panel. Convenient and easy to use, you only need to lift the
solar panel and face it directly towards the sun for a few
hours in order to receive the amount of energy necessary
to power the device.

GETTING STARTED
TIPS
SOLAR PANEL
This product uses a 600mAH rechargeable battery which
should be charged via the solar panel. For the battery’s first
charge, it is strongly advised to charge it for at least 12 hours
by lifting and positioning the solar panel in such a way that it
faces sunlight directly.
IMPORTANT The solar panel should be lifted and
positioned at no more than 90°.
•
For best results when charging the battery, avoid
placing the product behind glass windows, but expose
the solar panel directly to sunlight.
•
Do not scratch the solar panel’s surface or wipe it with
strong detergent.
•
Do not expose the solar panel to rain, snow or
moisture.
The duration of the rechargeable battery’s charging or
operating time is determined by either the intensity of
sunlight or the positioning of the solar panel towards
the sun.
