Product overview

• When fully charged can power an iPod up to 3 hours, mobile phone talk time 2-3 hours, and PDA up to 3 hours• Torch can be used for 40 hours on a full charge• Holds its battery charge for up to 3 months• Charges handheld devices whilst having its internal battery charged by its solar cells or USB charge cable• The solar panel can charge the internal battery in as little as 12 hours or 4 hours when using the supplied USB charging cable• Includes 5 connectors for the most popular mobile phones

This portable charging system can power any handheld device anywhere, anytime. Its internal battery is charged either via the solar panels which take energy from the sun and store it in the battery, or from a computers’ USB port. Should the connector required for your device not be included in the pack, you can use the original USB charging cable supplied with your device.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from At first, there was a problem with the slide-switch which meant it didn't charge at all. I took apart and fixed this by cutting away plastic to allow the switch to move to it's full extent which enabled me to charge. Come in the 2nd problem: Feebleness. I should have known that a "cheap" solar array as small as this one will barely light an LED let alone charge a 1800mAh LiPo in lots of devices these days. The thing to be aware of with solar panels is that there are cheap ones, and there are good ones. These ones which have straight lines like a pin-stripe suit are pants. You need Mono-Crystalline cells to get any reasonable output. I will just take this thing apart and use it for it's components, i.e the internal battery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is really bad. I have the same issue as another reviewer - that the USB charging cable does not make contact properly. I have also been completely unable to charge anything from it. My iPod lights up when first connected but doesn't charge. My phone light up but charges either very very slowly or not at all. It's going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Bought today as sick of my nexus 5 dying out and about. My phone was dead when I unboxed it so I just plugged it in and the lights said charging (via solar power) and said the battery was on meaning it was also charging my phone. Left in car for a bit whilst driving home and then in my kitchen window sill for just over an hour my battery is now at 42%. Not bad. Another little light just came on meaning voltage less than 3.5v. God knows what this means??? Sun not strong enough? Internal battery empty? Who knows. However. Did what I needed and can be fully charged by mains power before hand and shoved in my handbag (apparently it will hold its charge for up to 3 months) so u dont need to rely on the sun. Going camping at end of month so will be happy to leave it outside with us all day then plug my phone in at night. Pretty pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Agree with several other users, this isnt right. I am trying to charge my NWa3000 but the Sony is saying the computer is trying to connect to it rather than charge. When I disconnected the 'charger' the Walkman had to rebuild its libraries (once connected to a computer it usually needs a 'stop' signal for a clean disconnect).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have owned one of these chargers for over a year, and I don't think it is so bad. I keep in it constant daylight and it gathers enough power to keep my mobile phone recharged indefinitely. The two most positive features of this charger are its compact design and its ability to charge devices through the USB cable (no hunting for the right connector). This makes it very portable and adaptable. But the small size means it doesn't collect much sunlight, so it takes several hours in direct sun to fully charge, and it can only charge a low power device like a mobile phone. If you want to charge a laptop buy a higher powered charger. I think the best way to view this product is as a portable battery backup with solar trickle charge. It's best to start with the device fully charged before taking it with you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was left for two whole days in blazing sunshine and managed to accumulate enough energy to charge my Kindle for about 10 minutes. The energy this puts out is feeble, build quality is poor, even the torch is no good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A poor piece of equipment - flimsy casing, switch has no markings to say on/off, instructions unclear, and above all it didn't work! the best thing about this product is the case it comes in which is a neat piece of packaging with a magnet close - in fact the box is sturdier than the actual charger.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I agree with other comments about the poor build quality. My example will not even charge a phone when allegedly fully charged itself. It is only useful as a solar charged torch.
