BirdBoggle is a µP-controlled repellent device. The Rotor 1 turns cyclic and by means of a telescope 3 birds in the vicinity are scared away. The Rotor 1 houses all required elements for an autonomous operation. Power supply is provided via an integrated LION battery and a solar cell. BirdBoggle is maintenance free and protects your boat for months. BirdBoggle can be attached as well as detached within seconds.

Tilt the Rocker switch outward (green) to activate BirdBoggle’s low mode (2 sec. turning). Tilt the rocker switch inward activates BirdBoggle’s high mode (5 sec. turning). The idle time between two turns is 30 seconds and will be automatically extended with lower charging status of the battery. BirdBoggle indicates On-Mode by a blinking LED 9 at the telescope exit.
