The Liberty Solar Panel upgrade is designed as an additional power source for the battery-run feature.
Unlike standard solar powered water features, the Liberty features work on a run and recharge system. This means that whilst running the feature, the solar panel also harvests the sun’s energy into the Lithium battery.
The battery is very quickly charged from the sun’s energy, this is due to; the extra fast charge of the Lithium battery (compared to a standard alkaline battery), as well as the highly specified 5 watt solar panel (compared to the commonly supplied, 2.5 watt panels). This means you’ll enjoy continuous running of your feature during the sunnier months of the year.
Add the solar panel to the feature, prepared with a full battery, and you could go weeks without having to charge it at all. The feature will run either from the sun’s energy via the panel, or if the sun goes in the battery will kick in, so you can enjoy a continuous cycle of charging and running.
