On the solar powered mode, the fountain will run directly from solar energy; however, the pump will only work in bright and sunny conditions.
On the battery mode, you can power your fountain for up to 4 hours on cloudy days or at night. To run on battery mode simply press the Battery On/Off button. The battery will now power the pump.
When the battery power is depleted, the system will automatically change back to solar powered mode and start again when there is sufficient sunlight. A fully charged battery will operate up to 4 hours after the sun goes down.
To charge the batteries, leave your fountain off, charging the batteries for use when you want it, even at night.
**New Dry Run Protection Pump Technology - Typical pumps continue to run when the fountain is low on water or runs dry causing the pump to burn out and need to be replaced. This fountain includes new dry run protection technology so if the fountain runs low on water the pump will automatically shut off to save the life of your pump.
Replace the batteries with standard AA size rechargeable batteries.
