DONY BUY IT, what ever branding they put on it.

I bought one at Easter, and only ever solar charged it after the initial charge, as it was for emergency use only; after 4 months it suddenly blew up like a balloon.

Maybe because it takes 4 months to charge these things on the tiny solar panel they have

Could be because they get hot in direct sunlight. As well if the device is fully charged, the energy from the solar panel would of been converted to heat. If the device did not have over charge protection, or over temperature protection. It could of got too hot causing the battery's to blow up like a bellon. If you get a good quality one this should not happen.

I expected to that being the excuse if I shipped it back (which is why i didnt bother), but as it happens, it rained all that week, so almost no sunlight hit it, and the bulge happened overnight - it was fine when I parked the car - it was bulged when I got in the following morning.
Besides, if it charges off of sunlight, there should be over-charge protection circuitry - which obviously there isnt.

All in all, this isnt a safe design and shouldnt be on the market.

Maybe a short circuit. Eether way sound faulty to me. Amazon are quite good with refunds.
