Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the Triad-Pro Power Cells last?
Unlike toxic lead acid batteries which have a limit value recharge and discharge cycle rate, the Triad-Pro Power Cells have a life span between 1 million charge/discharge cycles, Recommend replacement is 10 -12 years.
Lead Acid batteries often need water and maintenance, how about the Triad-Pro Power Cells?
The Triad-Pro Power Cells is a "Solid State" storage solution. Unlike toxic lead acid batteries that boil over when overcharged, or if left on charge too long, the Triad-Pro Power Cells can recharge in minutes compared to hours., Control circuits prevent overcharge of the Triad-Pro Power Cells. The Triad-Pro Power Cells kit includes the Triad-Pro Roof-Top Solar Panel, During daylight activities the Sun is your charger so each time one stops the Triad-Pro Power Cell re-charges.
Is the Triad-Pro Power Cells Solution performance the same on cloudy days as on sunny days?
No, the performance of the Triad-Pro Power Cell Storage Solution and matching Triad-Pro Power Cells depends upon the intensity of energy generated by solar radiation. On average a horizontal surface varies from 1 to 9 kWh per day, depending on the time of year and the location. On a dark, cloudy day, with very low solar radiation, the solar cells' power production will be reduced proportionately. However, the Triad-Pro Power Cell Solution is equipped with controller technology, which helps to ensure the maximum possible solar energy input and helps to counteracts energy loss due to insufficient voltage output from the solar panels.
What about damage to the Triad-Pro Solar Storage Panels when hit by hailstones?
Under normal conditions hail will not harm the Triad-Pro Solar Storage Solution. In extreme situations, though, when the hailstones are large enough to damage ordinary cars, they will probably also damage the Solar Power Cell Panels as well.
How much does the Triad-Pro Power Cells & Panels weigh?
A complete Solaris Solution with matching Solaris SMART-CELL weighs approximately 120 lbs. Depending on storage requirements Triad-Pro Power Cells will eliminate 400+ lbs of Lead Acid battery weight.
Will the Triad-Pro have a negative impact on my golf car?
Yes, the weight reduction has a positive effect on traveling distance.
How do you connect the Triad-Pro Power Cell Solution to the golf car?
An instruction manual is supplied with each Triad-Pro Power Cell solution conversion kit. Follow the instructions carefully. It is recommend that you see a Triad-Pro Power Cell licensed installation company since this is not really a conversion for the typical consumer.
What if a golf ball hits an Triad-Pro Panel?
The solar cells on the Triad-pro Power Cell Solution are protected by tempered glass, which is four to five times stronger than standard glass and does not break into sharp shards when it fails. Tempered glass is manufactured through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling, making it harder than normal glass. The brittle nature of tempered glass causes it to shatter into small oval-shaped pieces when broken. This eliminates the danger of sharp edges. Due to this property, along with its strength, tempered glass is often referred to as safety glass. In extreme cases the protective glass panel will shatter if hit at right angles by a golf ball traveling at full speed. In most cases where angle of impact is somewhat less than 90°, the golf ball will bounce off, causing little or no damage. We are currently testing various Thermoplastic "Polymers" such as "Polyethylene Terephthalate" (used in the packaging of beverage, food and other liquid containers) and as we learn more about the cost effectiveness or impact characteristics we may change from glass to resin based panel cover.
What do you do with the existing plastic canopy after replacing it with the Triad-Pro POWER CELL SOLAR STORAGE SOLUTION solar panel?
The Triad-Pro Power Cells will out last the Golf Cart so we would suggest that you store the existing plastic canopy in a dry place until the car is to be sold.
Can I use the Triad-Pro Power Cell Storage Solution at night?
The Golf Cart needs sun light to recharge, At night if you need to re-charge a charger is available to re-charge Triad-Pro Power Cell instantly via any 110/220 AC source.
