Nate Madsen
Get the most power output from your solar panel by utilizing your iPhone or iPad to easily position a solar panel to receive optimal sun exposure.
Solar Tracker's Alignment Assistant has positioning options designed for users of both portable and stationary solar panels.

Optimal placement is based on the situation.

Whether you're trying to position a solar powered charger while on the go or the solar panels at your home for the season, Solar Tracker helps you get the power you need.

Set the iPhone/iPad on top of a solar panel and the Alignment Assistant will help you place the solar panel into the position.

Switch between the Alignment Assistant's Automatic, Heading and Tilt modes.

Quickly view your location, the sun position, sun rise/set times and the time remaining until the sun set or next sun rise.

Calculate optimal orientation and tilt for the given situation.

*** Options for portable users:

* Maximum Direct Intensity - 15 minute full power output/charging for a solar powered device, great while on the go.

* Specified Duration - Designed with portable chargers in mind, this option is great for the situations where the charger's location changes.
