This patented, portable solar powered charger recharges an iPhone up to 6X faster than typical models. In tests performed by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, the device recharged an iPhone battery from zero to full capacity 2.8 times before requiring a recharge itself, unlike other devices that could not fully recharge an iPhone once. The unit did not sustain any damage when submerged under water for one hour or when dropped repeatedly from 5', thanks to its durable construction of polycarbonate and automotive-grade urethane. The solar powered charger has a built-in, adjustable stand that allows the integrated solar panel to be repositioned for optimal sunlight collection and comes with four adapters for powering virtually any smartphone, e-reader, camera, or an iPad. Recharges in 12 hours of full sunlight (though the patented circuitry will charge in low light or overcast conditions) or in 7-8 hours via built-in USB port. The fully charged battery takes 20 months to discharge. 8 1/2" L x 5 3/4" W x 1" D. (1 1/2 lbs.)

i love my solar charger
By Scaredy Cat in DC
from Washington DC
Got the solar charger before Hurricane Sandy was due to create havoc in DC area. My neighborhood loses power whenever somebody sneezes much less a really serious hurricane. I was totally freaked out thinking of days with no power, no way to phone emergency crews, utilities, fire department, 911, etc. Having the solar charger was a big comfort to me in a scary time.The solar charger worked like a champion, so easy, so fast, so sturdy. And it charges all my devices too - Iphone, iPod, iPad. I will use it to power my stuff even in normal circumstances It's green energy all year around.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Portable Solar Charger
from Colorado Springs
Charges and simultaneously powers my iPad or iPhone. Even recharges rechargeable batteries. Tough. Water proof. No special prep. You take it out of the box & use it.

Daughter uses this in Borneo at an Orangutan care center. All the volunteers are able to recharge their cell phones and cameras quickly at sites with no electricity.
