Product Description

Expedition members no longer need to pack heavy batteries for their worldwide journeys. Choose from the 4.5-watt, 9-watt, or 14-watt Solar RollAAAAAAAAall of them are waterproof, come with a carrying tube, and have built-in reverse-flow protection. These flexible solar panels have amorphous solar cells, which work great in overcast or indirect light.

Please make sure you educate yourself before purchasing the solarroll. My problem was that I didn't realize I would have to buy a car charger for all of my peripherals that I wanted to plug in. Either that or you have to also purchase a brunton solo (which I haven't done yet because of funds). Besides that it charges fine.

I hiked the AT with this and it worked well for my phone so I could maintain a blog. It works best from 10am-3pm. The negative comments are coming from people that don't understand AC vs DC electricity. You WILL need your car charger with this.

charged up my droid x2 in about an hour an a half and the end of the day on a solo 5 day hike on the Superior hiking trail. People are complaining that they don't like the tube that it comes in and that it only comes with a cigarette lighter adapter. Yea the tube is more of something to sell the product in than anything else in my opinion, I found it worked well to roll the panel up with my sleeping pad each morning. As for the lack of a usb plug, amazon sells about 300 different kinds of usb plugs for cigarette lighters. I already had a double one just for car use so I plugged in my phone and the brunton inspire and charged them both. Obviously one or the other alone is faster, but with good sun it can do it! I've had my solar roll for about 7 years now and I still take it out one in awhile in the dead of the Minnesota winter just to enjoy how cool it is and to remind me that there is in fact life after winter.

I used the 14W SolarRoll on a 3-week hike in Iceland and it worked great. This panel was the only one that got some charging done during 3 weeks of mostly overcast skies. Under sunny conditions it delivers almost 14W, though perfect orientation to the sun is crucial (this almost never happens under real-wold conditions, so the output is less in most cases). I used it to charge my camera batteries (1250 mAh) through a generic 12V charger, and it charged my batteries to approximately 80% in two hours of good sunlight. Charging it to 100% took much longer (approx. 4-5 hrs in pretty good sunlight - we had some fast-moving clouds). The panel starts to charge as soon as one can see shadows. I usually attached the panel to my tent as soon as we arrived in camp, plugged in the most depleted battery and didn't worry about it until dinner or the next morning. On an overcast day it charged one completely drained battery to about 70% (judging by how many images I took with it the next day). That was more than I had expected.

Two things to consider:
1. You need a dedicated 12V charger, or some way to attach the panel to your device. Do your homework! Try it at home before you are in the middle of nowhere and notice that you don't have the right plug.
I purchased a Wasabi universal charger for my battery, which runs on 240-120V as well as 12V, and hooked it up via the cigarette lighter plug. It worked but is cumbersome. For my next trip I already made a dedicated cable that connects the panel directly to the charger. Less weight and one less connection to worry about as the female cigarette lighter looks quite flimsy (it worked fine though).

2. You need to figure out how to store the panel.
