After purchasing The Guardian™ or UltraSweep™ Outdoor you have a few options for powering your pest repeller. You can use the provided A/C adapter and plug the unit in, you can use batteries – or you can use our newest power option, the Solar Panel. Using The Solar panel (or batteries) is an exceptional way to get to those hard-to-reach places. But batteries can be costly – and if you have a bad enough pest problem – can make a significant dent in your pocket over time.
Solar power is environmentally-friendly and will save you money in the long run. Not to mention saving you time when you no longer have to test and change batteries. Here is a breakdown on how much batteries might cost you in 1 year, compared to a one-time purchase of the Solar Panel.
One 12-pack of Energizer Lithium size “C” batteries = $21.75
Let’s say that 12-pack of batteries lasts about 2 months with constant activation of your pest-repelling unit.
In 1 year, your total cost is $130.50 – that’s over $100 in batteries for 1 year!
For a fraction of that price at $49.95 you can save close to $80 in the first year and $130 every year after that. You also won't have to fumble with batteries ever again!
If you wanted to go the rechargeable battery route you could, but the setup costs alone can be high. Not to mention you'll still have to go out and test the batteries and recharge them as needed.
The Solar Panel is eco-friendly, weather-resistant, and super low-maintenance. This means you can just set it and forget it!
