    • Question: How long does it take the solar panel to fully charge the battery?
      • Answer: A 100 watt solar panel properly aligned to the sun in very bright sunshine will provide about 5.67 amps of charge into the 12 volt battery. This battery would require about 10-12 hours of GOOD sunshine to recover from being HALF discharged. 
    • Question: What kind of noise does it make when you draw energy from the battery?
      • Answer: It doesn't make any noise. That is one of the best features. 
    • Question: Can you " Plug " an additional panel up for more rapid charging?
      • Answer: Each PowerPak and Auxiliary Battery box can handle up to 120W of solar power. So you cannot add over 120W of solar as the internal controller may be damaged. But you can add extra battery power. Just follow the instruction in the manual and you can double your battery power. Also, you can add a separate solar panel to the extra battery bank. 
      • Question: If I had the battery fully charged, what is the maximum power that I can draw from it at 110v?
        • Answer: The inverter is rated up to 1440 watts continuous power. 
      • Question: Can you leave this outside all the time, even in rainy weather?
        • Answer: You can leave the panel out year round. The PowerPak should be covered or inside 
      • Question: If the panel is facing the sun all day would I be able to use it to power a video-game console. If not could you advise me on how to do that?
        • Answer: Yes it should run a game console very well on the panel during day and pulling from the PowerPak at night. The best part about this kit is you can add extra battery for double or triple run times.
