My SolidPad only can be powered on, if an external Powersupply is connected. Why can't I use it on battery?


On the battery you can find 2 lock sliders. One of them is locking automatically. The other one needs to be locked manually. Before we ship the units we unlock the 2nd switch to disconnect battery and protect it from discharging.

Once it is locked the battery will get connection. Please make sure the battery will be fully charged. Than you can operate your SolidPad on battery.

How long can I store my computer without loosing CMOS data?


The RTC battery is charged as soon as there is any powersupply like AC-Adapter or Vehicleadapter

  • The RTC Battery can run ~4000h a bit less than half a year.
  • It takes ~50h to fully recharge the RTC battery, because there is only a very small charging current possible.
  • If the RTC Battery is empty, the CMOS default settings are loaded. Alle BIOS settings, date & time and Passwords need to be set.

Recommended Power Settings for Windows 7


ProzessorenergieverwaltungZeitgeber zur Aktivierung zulassen

By default, Win7 does not allow the CPU to step down when using an external power supply.

The advantage of stepping down is not only that the CPU has a lower power consumption but that the computer case does not heat up so much and stays cool.

To allow CPU step down you do the following:

  1. Open the control panel and click on "Hardware and Sound".
  2. Go to "Power Options" and click on "Change battery settings".
  3. After that click for the selected power plan on "Change plan settings".
  4. Go further to "Change advances power settings".
  5. In the just opened window "Power Options", you are able to set the minimum processor state in percent under "Processor power management" > "Minimum processor state" > "Plugged in". It's recommended to use the same settings as for battery usage.


Besides the settings for CPU step down you can change the wake timers for the standby modes. The advantage is, that applications are able to wake up the system automatically from standby mode.

To enable the wake timers you follow the points 1 to 4. After that the wake timers can be enabled under "Sleep" > "Allow wake timers".
