The Somfy rechargeable battery wand can be used for Somfy 12V motors, such as the R28 RTS, Tilt and lift 25 RTS and the Tilt only wirefree RTS.
The wand fits 10 Nimh batteries, which are not included.
These batteries, once fully charged, give you power for 6 months or longer (depending on the motor type and the number of uses per day).
That means you don’t have to charge the batteries often.
And if you do, you can use the charger (can be bought seperately) and leave the wand and batteries in place. Just disconnect the wand from the motor and connect is to the charger’s wire and charge the batteries.
Saves you a lot of work.
As for the wand – you can place it vertically or horizontally with the 2 clips that are included.
