Be sure to charge your Phoenix to 100% before operating. This will maximize total battery life
and keep your battery healthy
For healthy battery maintenance, charge the Phoenix once every two months. If the Phoenix will
not be used for an extended period of time, such as a month, remove the battery and properly
store it until the Phoenix is in use again.
CHARGING VIA SOLAR + ADDITIONAL PANELS
If the Phoenix is not in operation while charging, make sure to turn the main power off. It will
maximize charging and expedite the process. Charging via solar requires as much sunlight as
possible. Make sure to steer clear of trees or branches that could cause shading and slow down
the charging process. Charging from 0% to 100% will take approximately 15 hours with only the
integrated solar panels. Charge frequently to maximize overall battery life.
To charge, simply put the Phoenix in an open area, unlatch the unit, close the doors, and expose
the solar panels to commence charging. It is recommended to have the input and output doors
closed when charging through the built-in solar panels.
Charging via solar panels
Charging is also possible through compatible additional solar panels and using the MC4 to
4.5mm DC IN cord included with your Phoenix. The following represents approximate charge
times from 0% to 100%.
CHARGING VIA AC OR WALL
CHARGING VIA AC
Electrical shock can occur if the AC cord is damaged or frayed. NEVER use a damaged cord.
Contact the manufacturer if the cord is damaged.
Turn off the main power
When charging via AC 2-pin inlet, it is recommended that the power button be in the OFF
position and the AC and DC output terminals not be used.
MC4 to 4.5mm DC IN Cord
• To speed up the charging
time, a 12V solar panel can
be used at the DC input
terminal with a maximum
of input of 100 Watts.
Connect the 2-pin inlet AC cable that is included with the unit . The unit can be charged in
the vertical or horizontal position.
12V Solar Panel
It will take about 5 hours to fully recharge the
internal battery. Do not cover or block the exhaust
vents when charging with the AC cable.

Make sure the Voc of the solar panel does
not exceed 25V. Heating will slow a charging
process, therefore, it is recommended to have
the Phoenix placed in the shade when charging
via external solar panels.
CHARGING VIA CAR / CIG PORT
Electrical shock can occur if the cord is damaged or frayed. NEVER use a damaged cord. Contact
the manufacturer if the cord is damaged.
Use the provided CIG to DC Cable in order to charge the Phoenix through a 12V DC Source or your
car. It will take about 5 hours to fully recharge the internal battery.

USING THE FLASHLIGHT
The Phoenix is equipped with a 3W LED Flashlight that encompasses
different modes: Head Light, Dimmer Head Light and Flashing.
Press the flashlight button once to activate the head light mode. Press the
button again to activate a dimmer Head Light. Press the button a third time to
activate Flashing mode and press the button again to turn off the flashlight
USING AC OUTPUT
The AC outlet is powered using the Phoenix’s internal pure sine wave inverter. Enjoy up to
150W of continuous output power.
Press the main power button. You will
know it is on upon seeing the lit blue ring.
Plug in your AC appliance and then
simply press the AC button to start
using your appliance.
Do not over-load the AC outlet. Doing so may damage the unit. When not in use, turn off
the AC mode to maximize battery life. Inverters have an idle draw and turning it off
maximizes battery life.
The following displays “AC OUT” when the AC outlet is turned on and ready for use
Technical Specifications
For further questions, consult our technical support team by emailing us at
techsupport@renogy.com or by calling 800-330-8678.
1.Why won’t my Phoenix turn on?
Press the metal power button to turn the Phoenix on. The blue lit ring around the power button
indicates the Phoenix is ready to power. If the blue lit ring is not visible, make sure to fully charge your
Phoenix using the provided AC cable or through the integrated solar panels. Charging will be in effect even
if the LCD display is not turned on. Check for error codes.
2.Can I leave my panels connected to the Phoenix for it to trickle charge?
(This applies to leaving the AC outlet connected as well)
The Phoenix is equipped with a lithium polymer battery pack. Lithium batteries are not meant for
trickle charging and therefore, it is not recommended to leave the power source (integrated solar panels
or AC cable) connected for extended periods of time beyond estimated charge times. Check for error
codes.
3.When I plug the AC power cord into Phoenix, it does not charge, what do I do?
The Phoenix can charge even if the LCD is not turned on. Turn on the Phoenix while charging to check if
the battery icon is displaying a charging motion. This should indicate charging. Check for any error
codes and if the problem persists, contact our technical support team.
4.Why does the Phoenix battery not last very long?
Different devices operate on different wattages. The Phoenix has a 210 watt-hour (Wh) capacity. Double
check your device wattages and if possible start using more energy-efficient devices. Check for any errors
codes.
5.How many panels can I connect to my Phoenix?
The Phoenix can accept a total of two panels and a total of 100 watts from the combined PV port. The
Phoenix is equipped with one MC4 to DC-IN Adaptor for pairing with Renogy solar panels.
6.Is the Phoenix waterproof?
The Phoenix is not waterproof, but definitely water-resistant as long as the accessory doors are closed.
7.Is the battery replaceable?
The Phoenix offers replacement batteries. Consult our technical support team for more information.
8.What do I do when I get an error code?
Make sure the devices do not exceed the Phoenix’s technical specification. In some cases , powering
off the Phoenix and disconnecting all connections should reset the error code . All other questions please
consult our technical support team.
9.Why do I get error code 36 when charging through the ac outlet?
Error code 36 behaves like an over-charge electronic protection. If the battery management system
detects full charge it will not let you charge the Phoenix if it is 95%-100% charged.
