Power Options

Please choose an option below indicating how you prefer your new door be powered. The door does require a 12 volt battery to operate which is included with the solar panel and trickle charger options. All connectors are plug and play.

The 5 watt solar panel comes with a 12 volt 5 amp-hour rechargeable lead acid battery. The Solar Panel needs an average of 2 hours of direct sunlight per day to keep the battery charged (or 60 hours per month). The battery will run the door for about 3 weeks in really bad (sunless) weather.

The Trickle charger comes with the same 12v battery. It plugs into house current, your standard outlet. It is a smart charger, keeps the battery charged and should always stay plugged in.

Note: For wire lengths, the door has 8 feet of wire to connect to the battery. Starting at the battery, the standard solar panel wire is 10 feet. We can extend that to 25, 50, or 100 feet instead of 10. The Trickle Charger has 6 feet of wire to the outlet starting at the battery.
