Monark Solar 1

Trickle charge your battery with solar power

Monark Solar 1

The Solar charge retention system for all starter batteries

Articel-no.: 083 822 001

Monark Solar 1 compensates for the self-discharge of starter batteries
after vehicles have been left parked for long periods of time. This enables
you to make considerable cost savings, as the charging capacity of on-board
batteries is considerably reduced after lying idle for long periods of
time. After two months, batteries can lose up to 40–60% of their original
capacity. And in a worst case scenario, the battery could be damaged.

But the Monark Solar 1 provides an effective remedy:

Monark Solar 1 converts solar energy into electrical energy, which it uses to recharge the battery.

The Monark Solar 1 therefore compensates for the loss of power in the battery
that results from self-discharge and standby consumption.

How it works:
The system is simply affixed to the inside of the windscreen. Connection
to the battery is via a cable with an OBD2 type B plug. Other variants
available on request. Battery charging begins automatically, and is limited
to 14.3V or 28.6V. This ensures that overcharging is not possible.
The Monark Solar 1’s frame is translucent, and it features rounded edges
and corners, thus preventing scratches or discolouration to the vehicle’s
It quickly pays for itself, as it does away with the need for external top-up charging, jump-starting and indeed replacement of batteries.
