Our ShootX Solar Kit allows operation of your ShootX camera off-grid for long term time lapse and remote monitoring deployments.

The ShootX Solar Kit consists of a 9 Watt panel with 5 Volt power regulator, a long tip microUSB for connection to the ShootX camera and mounting accessories.

  • The ShootX Solar Kit provides a 5Volt regulated output from a 9Watt solar panel to recharge the ShootX camera battery. It comes with two mounting attachment options and wiring (long tip microUSB) for connection to the ShootX camera.

    The two mounting options are either an aluminum baseplate that can be fastened to a flat surface, or a  ¼"-20 threaded ball screw. The regulated long tip microUSB power cable has a 2m length (78") that allows for the solar panel to be positioned away from the ShootX camera, while the ball-socket arm connects to either ball base to provide a wide range of angle adjustment so the panel can be positioned for optimum sun exposure.

    The 9W Solar Panel Kit also includes a "(2Fx1M) Y-cable" that can be used to connect multiple solar panels to simultaneously charge a single ShootX camera.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I use the ShootX Solar Kit with other CamDo products?

    No, the ShootX Solar Kit is only compatible with the ShootX camera.

    Will the solar panel be able to keep my time lapse running indefinitely?

    This would depend on the shooting cycle used and the sun exposure available in your location. We advise all customers to calculate their battery needs due to the many variables. We have a Time Lapse Calculator that can be used to help determine your ideal shooting interval and how long your battery should theoretically last using our controller boards and batteries. The Calculator also gives the rate at which the solar panel should be able to recharge your battery at your given location and with the panel angle that is used. Keep in mind that temperature, battery fatigue, and other electrical inefficiencies will prevent the camera from using the full battery capacity.

    How long will the battery last before it is discharged?

    It depends on many factors including your latitude, the amount of sun and cloud during your shoot and the shooting schedule you have programmed. There are too many variables to give a perfect answer but we have created a Time Lapse Calculator to work out the best setup for your shoot in your location.
