The latest technology from Europe is now available, making motorisation of your blinds more accessible. 

SOMFY SONESSE 30 and ACMEDA lithium battery powered motorised blinds make motorization affordable.

Just recharge the lithium battery (which is incased inside the roller tube) by connecting the charger to a point on the outside of the roller tube. It is a little like charging a mobile phone.  It takes a few hours to completely recharge. Most battery powered blinds need charging every 3-6 months.  You will need to recharged it more regularly if you use it alot or if it is a heavier blind than normal. The charger also comes with an extension cord, so if the powerpoint is not close it can still be reached to recharge.
