How does the upper motor (6 volt)in the rebuild kit work with the 12 volt system?
The upper motor in the Aquapro ADF-75 is marketed as a 6v motor by the manufacturer, and is also used in their 6v feeders, but I believe the motor is actually a 6v/12v motor and it is the same motor that is used in the Aquapro ADF-75 fish feeders. The motor can handle both 6v or 12v current.
What watt solar panel does the adf 75 take
The Aquapro ADF-75 Fish Feeder takes a 12v solar panel. The panel the feeder comes with is a 1.26 watt solar panel. You want to charge the battery at a rate of C\8 or C\12, which means you want to charge at an amperage that is 1/8th (C\8) to 1/12th (C\12) of the amp-hour capacity. You could use up to a 10 watt solar panel with a 12v 7ah battery, but you also run the risk of overheating the battery by charging too fast with this larger solar panel. If you are having issues keeping the battery charged, you might try getting a slightly larger solar panel than the 1.26 watt it comes with, maybe a 2 watt or 5 watt solar panel.
