Just recently I got myself a new tough solar watch protrek PRG 240T-7, I am really happy and satisfied with the features on it .
I want to ask about how long to charge my solar watch for the first time?
Here are the instruction in the manual:
I am kinda confused how to read the table .
Need a total of 18 hours to fully charging the battery under the sun (50.000 lux)? --> correct me if I am wrong...
I know that the watch will be better if I charge directly below the sun light, but because of my work I can't do it now (spent a lot of my time in the office).
I am kinda new to this kind of technology (like Tough Solar), but I have studied a lot about it .
And for the compesantion I use this kind of set up to charge my watch (desk lamp with phillips 15 watt 850 lumens on it):
I know that the temperature will be the main issue but as far as I know the temperature in the surface of my watch didn't realy hot (just warm). Will it be safe to continue using this kind of set up? I already run 8 hours and no blank screen in the display and will be planning to run it to another 70 hours.
For your information the first time I got my watch it show M in the battery power indicator, after 8 hours with my set up, my watch always show on H status
any kind of reply I really apreciate it
thx a lot
