  1. Your motor will arrive with approximately 3 hours’ worth of charge, however we recommend charging the motor for a further 3-5 hours before installing.
  2. All motors have a charging port that is visible on the motor head. Simply plug the charger into this port to charge.
  3. It is important to respect the order of connection – plug in the blind/motor first, then plug into mains power.

7. A full charge will take approximately 5 hours, this will provide up to 8 months use before needing to be charged again. This is dependent on size of the blind and frequency of use. Charging your motor once or twice per year will be sufficient based on one cycle (up and down) per day.

8. Battery chargers are not supplied as standard – there is no need for a charger per blind. 1 – 2 chargers per household is sufficient.
