The Voyager Go power save mode automatically turns off the Voyager Go if it does not detect a device connected for 5 hours. This power save mode feature prevents draining the battery when the Voyager Go is left on and not in use. However, some devices that draw low amounts of power may not be detected and cause the Voyager Pro to shut down after 5 hours. To turn off the power save mode, simply press and hold a port’s power button for 3 seconds (until the LED light flashes), indicating that the Power Save mode has been disabled for that port. Pressing the power button on the port again turns off the port and cancels the Power Save override. The power save mode works independently for each type of output port (AC, USB, 12V), so the power save mode can be turned off for each type of output port separately (as described above).
No, the Voyager Go 500 Battery Generator is not waterproof, so it should not be exposed to water or moisture.
Yes, the Voyager Go 500 Battery Generator includes pure sine wave AC outlets that can safely power sensitive electronics, like laptops and cameras.
No, the Voyager Go 500 Battery Generator cannot be charged from a car’s DC port.
Yes, the solar input (Anderson PP15/45 connector) on the back side of the Voyager Go 500 allows for up to 200W of solar power input to increase its charging rate and/or extend run times. Coleman portable folding solar panels (50W, 100W, and 200W – sold separately) are perfectly designed to connect to the Voyager Go 500 quickly and easily. If you already have a 12V solar panel (the open circuit voltage of your solar panel cannot exceed 30 volts) from another brand, you can most likely still use it with the Voyager Pro. You may need to purchase an Anderson PP15/45 adapter and parallel Y-connector to connect more than one panel to the Voyager.
Yes, you can use smaller, lower-wattage solar panels to charge the Voyager Go 500 Battery Generator, but the charge times will vary according to the wattage of your panel.
The advantages of adding solar panel to the Voyager Go 500 include faster charging which leads to longer runtimes for your devices.
The Coleman Voyager has the capability to accept up to 200 Watts of total solar charging power. You may connect multiple solar panels together using a parallel combiner cable as needed, as long as the total wattage does not exceed 200W.
Solar Panel connects directly to your Voyager Go 500 for simple, plug-and-play ease of use. Follow these steps to connect your Solar Panel:
- Position the solar panel for maximum sun exposure.
- Align the red and black colors of the solar panel connector (must be an Anderson PP15/45 style connector) with the solar input connector on the back of the Voyager Go 500 and press fully into position.
- The Voyager’s intelligent LCD screen will show the solar icon, the input power, and the battery charge level.
No, the combiner cable must be a PARALLEL type. Do not use a Series type combiner.
To obtain the fastest charge time, position your solar panel where it will receive the maximum exposure to direct sunlight. If the solar panel is placed in shade or is used in cloudy conditions, it may take significantly longer to charge your Voyager. It is recommended to keep your Voyager charged so it is ready for use any time. One thing to note is that if the input power from your Solar Panel(s) equals or exceeds the total power draw of all of the items connected to your Voyager, there will be no drain on the Voyager’s internal battery while it is being used to run and charge your devices.
It depends on the type of Solar Panel. Coleman portable folding solar panels may produce energy even in cloudy conditions, depending on the total amount of available light. If a Coleman Solar Panel is placed in shade or is used in cloudy conditions, it may take significantly longer to charge your Voyager. To obtain the fastest charge time, position your Solar Panel where it will receive the maximum exposure to direct sunlight.
