will this power an i phone 5se

Asked by: PK855
Direct charging: If the charging unit was receiving optimum sunlight to generate its maximum output of 200ma It would take approximately 9 hours of constant charging to recharge an iPhone 5se battery (assuming the iPhone was turned off at the time) Stored Charging: If you had already fully charged the onboard battery using the solar cell, the it would take about 2.5 hours to charge an iPhone 5se from the battery pack.
