CHARGING YOUR VX16
There are three ways to charge your VX16.
SOLAR CHARGING
The VX16 can be charged by using the power of the Sun. Open your VX16 and for best results, place it in
direct sunlight. The battery capacity on
LCD display will start going up. Make sure
the solar panel
can get as much sunlight as possible.
You can add additional solar panels (Max.50W) by connecting them through
DC 12V~23V INPUT
connector and putting them under direct sunlight, to charge the VX16 faster (not included).
After the
LCD display shows the battery 100% full please close the VX16 and / or disconnect
additional solar panels to protect the battery.
The 16Ah internal backup battery will take about 16 hours to fully charge.
In cloudy conditions, VX16 may take approximately 2 times longer to charge than the above mentioned
times, but this is depending on the time of year, density of cloud etc.
If charging from behind the glass, it will increase the time needed to charge, sometimes up to three times
longer than if outside.
AC CHARGING
The VX16 can be charged by any standard AC 220V wall outlet using the included (b) AC charging cable.
Connect (b) charging cable to VX16 in to
the AC 220V INPUT and plug the other end into any
standard AC wall outlet to begin charging. The battery capacity on LCD display will start going up. After
the LCD display shows the battery 100% full disconnect the charging cable to protect the battery.
The 16Ah internal backup battery will take about 3 hours to fully charge.
DC CHARGING
Your VX16 can be charged by car DC 12V cigarette socket using the included (c) DC charging cable.
Connect (c) charging cable to VX16 in to the DC 12V-23V INPUT and plug the other end into DC 12V
car cigarette socket to begin charging. The battery capacity on LCD display will start going up.
After the LCD display shows the battery 100% full, disconnect the charging cable to protect the battery.
The 16Ah internal backup battery will take about 3 hours to fully charge.
