Safety instructions

WARNING! ACCIDENT

HAZARD AND RISK OF FATAL INJURY FOR INFANTS AND

CHILDREN!

Rechargeable batteries are not intended for the hands of children. Do not leave the batteries lying around. They may otherwise be swallowed by children or pets. If accidentally swallowed seek immediate medical attention. Children or persons lacking knowledge or experience in handling the device or have limited physical, sensory or mental abilities, must not use the device without supervision or instruction by a person responsible for their safety. Children must be supervised at all times to prevent them from playing with the device. Never leave children unsupervised with the packaging material. The packaging material represents a danger of suffocation. Children frequently underestimate the dangers. Please keep the product out of the reach of children at all times.

This product is not a toy and should be kept out of the reach of children. Children are not aware of the dangers associated with handling electrical products.

Do not use the article if you detect any kind of damage.

DANGER - EXPLOSION HAZARD! Do not use the solar light in explosive environments con-

taining flammable vapours, gasses or dusts.

Product-specific safety instructions

Do not expose the solar light to strong vibration or high mechanical loads.

Make sure the solar cell is free of dirt and free of snow and ice in winter. Otherwise the performance of the solar panel will diminish. Cold temperatures negatively impact the battery operating time. Clean and store the solar

Safety instructions

light in a dry, warm location during extended periods of non-use, e.g. in winter.

In the event of damage, repairs or other problems with the solar light, please contact an electrician. The LEDs cannot be replaced!

DANGER - EXPLOSION HAZARD! Use only rechargeable batteries of the recommended type.

Other rechargeable or single-use batteries could explode during charging.

DANGER - RISK OF INJURY! Be sure to also remove the base and ground stake when remov-

ing the solar light to prevent hazards (e.g. tripping).

DANGER - FIRE HAZARD!

Never switch the solar light on inside the packaging.

Safety instructions for rechargeable batteries

Outdated or used rechargeable batteries may leak chemicals which damage the product. Therefore remove the rechargeable batteries when not using the solar light for extended periods.

DANGER - FIRE HAZARD!

Do not allow rechargeable batteries to short-circuit. Otherwise the re-

chargeable batteries may overheat, become a fire hazard or explode.

DANGER - EXPLOSION HAZARD! Never throw rechargeable batteries into fire or water.

WARNING - WEAR

SAFETY GLOVES! If they come into contact with skin, leaked or

damaged rechargeable batteries could cause chemical burns; you should therefore wear suitable protective gloves at all times if such an event occurs.

GB/IE 7

Functionality / Start-up

Functionality

The solar module built into this product converts sunlight into electricity and stores it in the rechargeable NiMH battery. Switches on the light as it begins to get dark.

The in-built light-emitting diodes are a very long-life and energy-saving light source.

The light duration depends on the amount of sunlight, the angle of light on the solar panel and the temperature (the battery capacity is temperaturedependent). A vertical angle of light at temperatures above the freezing point is ideal.

The battery does not achieve maximum capacity until after several charge and discharge cycles.

Start-up

Assembling the light

Remove the individual parts from the packaging and assemble the solar light as shown in figures A1–A3. There are two options for doing so: the spacer tube 3 will give the solar light a height of approx. 40 cm (see Fig. A2), using the spacer tube 2 it will have a height of approx. 27 cm (see Fig. A3).

Insert the selected spacer tube

2

or

3

into

the designated opening on the solar module

5

(see Fig. A1).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then insert the ground stake

 

 

into the bot-

1

tom of the spacer tube

2

or

 

3

 

(see Fig. A1).

Installing the light

The solar light can be installed without a power source. Only use the solar light with the included ground stake 1 . Push the assembled solar light far enough into the ground (lawn, flower bed) so it is stable.

Since the light relies on sunlight, consider and observe the following points prior to installation:

Select a location where the solar module 5 is exposed to direct sunlight during the day.

8 GB/IE

Position the solar light so the solar module 5 is not covered or in the shade (trees, roof ridge, etc.).

Be sure the solar module 5 is not impacted by another light source, e.g. yard or street lighting, as this will prevent the light from switching on at twilight. Remember many light sources will only switch on due to the time or movement during the night.

Prior to initial use

The solar light features a twilight sensor and an

 

On/Off switch. When fully charged the light on

 

time is approx. 6 to 8 hours.

 

Unscrew the sphere

4

from the solar module

5

counter-clockwise.

Set

the On/Off switch

g

to

ON before using it for the first time.

 

Screw the sphere

4

clockwise all the way into

the solar module

5

and place the solar light

in the sun.

 

 

 

 

 

Light functions

Switch g set to ON - the solar light will automatically switch on at twilight. At dawn the light will automatically switch off.

Switch g set to OFF - the solar light is permanently switched off.

Replacing the battery

The rechargeable battery is designed for prolonged operation. However, after a long time of use if may need to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries are subject to natural wear and the output may decrease. For optimal performance the batteries should be replaced every 12 months.

Replace the battery as shown in figures B1–B3. Unscrew the sphere 4 counter-clockwise. Set the switch g on the solar module 5 to

OFF.

Remove the solar module 5 from the spacer tube 2 or 3 .

Start-up / Troubleshooting / Maintenance/ Cleaning

Unscrew the two screws a on the underside counter-clockwise using a suitable cross-tip and remove the b housing from the remainder of the module (see Fig. B1).

Then also unscrew the three screws c on the underside of the cover counter-clockwise using a suitable cross-tip screwdriver and remove the cover d from the remainder of the module (see Fig. B2).

Remove the battery f and replace with a

new, charged rechargeable battery of the same type (see „Technical Data“). Please note the polarity (+/-) when inserting the rechargeable battery (see Fig. B3).

Now reattach the cover

to the solar cell

These could be e.g. mobiles, two-way radios, CB radios, wireless remote controls/other remote controls and microwaves. If you notice that the device is malfunctioning, remove any sources of interference from the area of the device.

NOTE

Electrostatic discharges can lead to malfunctions. In the event of such malfunctions briefly remove and reinsert the rechargeable batteries.

Maintenance/ Cleaning

The LEDs cannot be replaced. The solar light is maintenance-free.

Never use caustic cleaners.

Regularly clean the solar light with a dry, lintfree cloth. Use a slightly moist cloth to remove any stubborn dirt.

Replace the rechargeable batteries if the light on time decreases noticeably after some time despite good sun exposure (see chapter „Replacing the battery“). Only use rechargeable batteries of the right size and of the recommended type (see section „Technical data“).
