You need to power the MOVE unit with rechargeable batteries. Alkaline batteries can not be used.
The battery type that we recommend that you choose for MOVE is 4 x AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries. Charge with the solar panel (not included in the package), micro USB power adapter for trickle charging (Android cell phone type ) , or by an ordinary battery charger. We recommend that you charge the batteries with an external battery charger. If the batteries are fully drained you need to recharge them by an external battery charger.

The solar panel will charge the rechargeable batteries when exposed to direct sunlight. With the right circumstances MOVE will become power self sufficient.
How much power the solar panel is able to generate depends on how intense the sunlight is that reaches the panel, factors that comes into play is what kind of window you have and how you have chosen to install it.
One hour of direct sunlight equals about four minutes motor runtime.

Boost MOVE with 50% extra motor torque
If have a heavy blind or shade you might need more motor power. We have modified an AC power adapter and the result is what we call the Power Booster. It powers the blinds motor through the battery input and is plugged into the wall socket, which generates 50% more motor torque. That will enable you to move your heavier roller shades, roman blinds, venetian blinds or if you just want more motor speed on your standard blinds the Power Booster will make that happen.
