The solar panel has its own 2400 mAh Lithium Battery which will be charged by the solar cells. It doesn't charge the AA batteries, it hold a charge that powers the camera.
NOTE: When using the Solar Charger, you do not need to insert the batteries into the camera, however you need to get the solar charger some power from the sun first.
If you do choose to have batteries in the camera while using the solar charger, it will use the battery power first and the solar charger power as backup.
Follow these instructions:
- Set the solar panel under the sun for roughly 3-4 hours until the 4th LED turns ON.
- Connect the Clear Vision Cam to the solar charger by using the cable adapter.
- Once the solar panel is charged, turn on the solar panel by pressing the ON/OFF button.
- Turn on the camera and you're good to go!
