What's the best option for powering your motorized cellular shades? Well, that depends! The information below is intended to help guide you towards the best option for your situation. As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
The external-mount rechargeable lithium battery pack measures nearly 10 inches long. As a result, it carries plenty of capacity and power for infrequent charging and dependable operation. While this battery could be placed inside the headrail in some applications (for example, with an outside mount shade), it would protrude approximately 1/2 inch above the top of the headrail. In most cases, the battery would be mounted outside the headrail. If you have at least 1 3/4 inches between the back of your headrail and the window or framing, the battery can be hung inconspicuously on the back side of the headrail. Otherwise, it can be mounted with screws or double-sided tape wherever you decide is best (extension cables may be necessary).
If you don't want to worry about charging your battery pack and you don't have the right configuration for a solar charger, you can always plug your shade right into the nearest power outlet with our plug-in transformer. It's simple, reliable, and power consumption is minimal since shades are not operated continuously.
