Love how they forgot to mention the charge time for the internal battery from the solar cell. Looking at 12 - 15 hours if you are lucky.

So Assuming we good weather, it could take 3 days to charge the thing up.

So cold.

Pity it doesn't say what the power of the solar panel is, as it may take all week to charge battery up

Small capacity, you'll never get the stated capacity and the solar cells will be on par with a casio calculator for the comparative cost get an Anker rechargeable. Cold for me as it's a waste of money

I've had many solar chargers. Not worth it if you want to save money, but a good back up if you need it when hiking etc

Our Dutch friends have a forum about this product and they have been testing it with differing results.

What I cannot see is, is it weather proof, if you cannot leave it outside all day to charge it is a bit of a waste of time. Double glazing and coated glass windows reduce their effectiveness so much they are not worth using. Pity really

can you plug additional panels in daisy chain style to achieve a quicker charge?

What a load of rubbish. It came with 75% charged. I plugged in my samsung phone and it appeared to be charging, then stopped after about 30 minutes. It had run out of charge. Put solar charger outside in sun to recharge and I never again saw any charge in the contraption. What a waste of money.

I had exactly the same problem, I charged my phone, then tried my iPad and within minutes the charger drained. Left the charger in the sun on one of the sunniest days of the year as well.

once the charge that it came with run out,the only thing it seems to do is light a red light indicating solar and nothing else ,12 quid wasted.

Mine had 75% charge put one percent onto my iPhone and stopped coming on at all
