Congratulations, you’ve just purchased one of the
most effective products available for ensuring battery performance. The Solargizer and Receptacle
Solargizer Battery Maintenance Systems aren't
battery chargers — they are better.
Each system uses our revolutionary ReNew-IT
Pulse Technology to prevent the main cause of battery
problems and failure: sulfation buildup
on your battery plates. By conditioning
the plates, these proven products help
prevent dead batteries, extend battery life
dramatically & maintain peak battery efficiency.
They also increase charge acceptance so batteries
recharge faster & with better quality.
Installing Solargizer is very easy. Just follow the
simple instructions inside. Once installed, they
work automatically to ensure peak battery performance & constant reliability.

be mounted in one of the following ways:
• 1st Method: For a permanent installation, use four flat
head screws to mount the solar panel to a flat surface
on your vehicle or equipment.
• 2nd Method: Attach the solar panel by using two pieces
of double-sided tape as follows:
• Clean the surface where you plan on mounting the
solar panel to remove all dirt, oil, etc.
• Peel off the backing from the double-sided tape and
stick both pieces to the back of the panel lengthwise
Once the solar panel has been mounted use a plastic
turbed by a mechanic.
Splicing The Solar Panel Wire (Optional)
If you wish to remove any excess wiring or lengthen the
wiring between the solar panel and circuit box once they are
mounted, follow these steps. Note: DO NOT connect the circuit box to the battery until after the splicing is completed.
Also, the splicing can take place only between the solar
panel and circuit box and NOT between the circuit box and
battery.

2. The Solargizer has been installed incorrectly (reversed

Precautions
• DO NOT hold positive and negative lugs at the same
time while the solar panel is exposed to sunlight. It may
cause a slight electric shock. Be sure to keep the panel
out of sunlight during installation.
• Any solvents that may be harmful to plastic should not
be used on or near the unit.
• Secure ALL Solargizer wires and verify they are a safe
distance from moving parts before starting the vehicle.
