Answer: 
The solar cell is very small, and charges a small storage battery. The solenoids IIRC are 12v, so to charge 12v worth of batteries, you would need 14-15 volts or so. The current out put from a cell this size would be measured in mA.
However, all of mine went bad. The displays went blank and they won't power on or operate. And they leak. This is a really good idea of a product, but they quality is really Read More

Answer: 
Great Question divad. Unfortunately there is no info. either on the box, product or internet. However being that this valve is for turning on and off a timer, I would guess the voltage is very low. Hope this helps. Andy

Answer: 
Great Question Jack. Unfortunately they do not sell spare parts for these if you have to you will have to replace. The bottom valve is replaceable with other valves. Hope this helps .

Solar Powered Irrigation Timer with Anti-Siphon Valve is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irrigation timer Wonderful product. We ordered 4 and they have not let us down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk, quality control issues When I saw 8 out of 12 units on the shelf were returns that should have been a warning. 1st unit I charge 8 hours in 90 degree CA sun, and nothing DOA out of the box. Exchange for unit 2, charge works so I install it. Turn water on and unit will not shut off. Exchange for 3 unit. This time everything works for 3 days then at 2am the water turns on by itself. I shut off valve to sprinklers, next morning turn back on and unit still is on. I program everything to off, bleed system, took unit apart looked for debris...nothing but Another faulty unit. Took 3rd unit back went to Osh bought Toro battery unit and works like a champ.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So far it's not working too well. I purchased this unit and it worked great for about a week. The solar charger stopped working and unfortunately the unit got stuck in the "on" position and flooded our garden before we noticed. I called the tech support number and they sent out a new unit that supposedly had a new solar panel. I was told the previous units had defective solar chargers and that this new unit was fixed. The new unit worked for a couple of weeks and then died as well. They are sending out a new unit to me today and I've been assured that this time the problems have been fixed. We'll see...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have four of these installed so far and there will be more! The first has been performing flawlessly for almost three years now. Its not the cheapest valve on the shelf, but if you are looking for an alternative to the traditional wired control this is good choice. Simple, clean installation. Put it anywhere. No wiring hassle. I've placed all of mine below grade by cutting a small round hole in the lid of an irrigation box and mounting the control head on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from on my 2nd unit - totally satisfied I have not had any of the grief described at all in the lower rated reviews. I am on my 2nd one because the first one started to leak after 3 years in the hot AZ sun. (The 2nd one I installed in the shade, since it only requires ambient light to charge.) I have zero complaints about this model, and love hove seriously programmable it is, I mean there are so many options, it would take an entire year to test them all. I love this unit and highly recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don't recommend this one I had the battery (9 volt style- no longer offered) installed previously for about 1 year on my irrigation system, when the solenoid on the valve quit working. I wanted to replace it with a solar one, as it would be too much trouble to run power to the location. In my local area all I could find were the solar ones with the back flow preventer. I was very hesitant about purchasing this style model but went ahead with the purchase, as my time was short for leaving AZ. for the summer. As soon as I installed this, I hated it! As the back flo preventer wasted more water than I thought was necessary for safety reasons. I arrived back home in AZ. last fall to find this valve not shutting off completely. I have since ripped this model out and went with an Orbit battery one which, I hope I have better luck with. The Orbit unit seems much more quality construction than either of the Dig units I have used in the past.. Great Idea! just poor quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK! Just installed one in my backyard and not only does it leak, but it wont shut off the water. DO NOT BUY!
Date published: 2014-03-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by from On my 3rd one, still leaks First one, factory welded seam was leaking, second one, solar timer was wired to turn off instead of on. Third one leaks around the valve like it needs a new gasket. I don't trust it. I will probably try the solar timer on a rain bird or Toro valve.
