Ok so this thankfully I didn’t buy. But it was bought for each of the kids in the group for Easter. So us parents all set them all up and got them ready to use as the youngest using it would be 7 the oldest 16.
We spent all day in the sun charging, then proceeded to charged one iPod for 3 minutes and then was out of power. On to the next charger, the charging light came on indicating it was charging, tried to charge my phone…2 minutes later the charger was dead again not impressed by this brand…not at all. The reason these were bought was for each ones backpacks as a charging device incase cells died at school or in a emerg.
None of the parents who had one given, where impressed at all. And the buyer is taking them all back asap.
Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.

One of my classes was on solar panels , you can go to radio shack and get all the components you need to build up one for something like what you want it for , they are actually very simple , just look up solar panel connection : watts , series vs. parallel . ………..that will tell you how to solder the panels together to get what you need .April 19, 2014 at 11:18 pm #9786
When I finally throw some money into getting a small scale solar power set up like this, I’m probably going to grab me up something by GoalZero. Their products seem to be the best for smaller stuff.

Heard a lot of good things about goal zero , out here anything solar will do well .April 20, 2014 at 4:53 am #9846
For the solar charging stuff you have to buy really high quality panels. The cheap options are still pretty crap. Goal zero is good. I have the 6.5W version of this solar set here.
It provided me with energy for all my electronic devices (tablet, gps, smartphone) during several multi day hikes with mixed weather. I just attach it to the top of my backpack and it fully charges my smartphone during a day walking.
