How do I power my electric blind?



All of the blinds on this website are powered by a 12 volt electric supply. There are a number of options available to power your blind depending on what your requirements are and where the blind is being fitted which we will detail below.

It is important to be aware that each blind requires its own power supply and that if you tamper with any power supply (e.g. cut the cables) then this will invalidate the warranty.

When we talk about normal use we are referring to a blind that is 200cm wide and 170cm drop being taken up and down fully once per day. There are a number of factors that can affect this including how tight the brackets are, how big the blind is and how much you use the blind; so this should be used as a guide only.


3 Pin Plug

3 Pin Plug

Our 3 pin plug is an ideal solution for those who want to 'set and forget' - simply plug the cable into the motor and off you go.

The cable supplied is 2.4metres long but you can get extensions in our shop if required.

Single Use Battery Pack

Single Use Battery Pack

This battery tube takes eight 1.5V AA alkaline batteries. If you order this pack with your blind it comes complete with batteries, so it is ready to use.

The pack comes with clips which allow you to fit the pack behind the blind and ideally out of sight. The cable then plugs directly into the motor on the blind.

Through normal use the batteries will need replacing once per year.

Integrated Rechargeable Motor

Integrated Rechargeable Motor

Our premium solution where the battery is built into the motor. Perfect as you will never see it and there is no separate battery pack to install!

If you order this option it will be supplied with a mains charger that simply plugs into the motor to charge the blind up. Through normal use the battery will need to be charged just once per year.

This has quickly proven to be one of our most popular options.

Integrated Lithium Rechargeable Pack

Lithium Rechargeable External Battery Pack

The Lithium battery is built into this stylish, square battery pack so no loose batteries need to be inserted. The cord simply plugs into the motor and comes with clips which allow you to fit the pack out of site behind the blind.

Through normal use the batteries will need recharging once per year. To charge the battery pack, simply unplug the tube, take it down and plug into the charger supplied.

Available to buy either with or without the charger, this means if you're ordering more than one blind you can decide how many chargers you'll receive depending on your specific needs.
