I use this little guy anytime I go camping to keep my phone nice and charged.
Jared VanMeter
I will have it sitting in the sun all day and the back light will show that it is charged 50%, yet when I plug my phone into it it only raises my battery up 3%.
baileycreations
You can't charge the battery in this device over 50% from the solar cell, it just isn't powerful enough.

As part of my long-term goal of living off the energy grid, I decided to get my feet wet with a small, inexpensive solar power charger for my iPhone and other small electronics. My Solar ReStore solar battery pack turned out to be a great way to get started using free energy from the sun.

Priced around $30, my Solar ReStore unit arrived swiftly in a white plastic bubble-pack mailer. The package is made of that rigid clear plastic that you need scissors to open and can give you a deep 'paper' cut if you are not careful. I cut off the top of the plastic with kitchen shears and carefully made a cut down the side to pull out the materials.

The charging unit itself is almost exactly the size of my iPhone, being a tiny bit larger and considerably lighter. The front consists of a solar panel. The sides offer a USB port, an AC charging port, an LED light on a long, flexible stem that wraps around the side of the unit, an LED light button and a charging indicator light. The back of the unit has a press button indicator showing how charged the unit's battery is - 20, 50, 80 and 100%.

My solar charger arrived 50% charged from the sun, which is apparently as much of a charge as the unit can get from solar power only. I hooked the unit to a wall outlet with the included AC adapter and waited around an hour to see the charge total listed as a full 100%.

From this point I connected my iPhone, which was down to a 20% charge, to the unit to see how long the stored energy in the charger would take to top up. It was a simple matter to plug my iPhone cord right into the USB port on the charger. At that point I clicked the sliding switch to "on" and waited. After two hours my phone was 100% charged. It only took an hour to bring me to a 50% charge, for reference.

I bought this to help keep my iPhone charged while backpacking. While the reviews for this item are mostly good, I have to be middle of the road on this one. It's only $30 so one can't really expect 5-star results. Overall I would say it has met my expectations. My 3-star review simply means it is average. Not great, not bad.

I do a lot of overnight and weekend hiking, and in August 2011 I will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. I'll be without power, water and other luxuries for 7 days. I plan on using my phone as my camera, for texting and updating Facebook while on the mountain. I have run this charger through several tests over the past two weeks. It charged to 100% with no problem using an A/C outlet. I then attached it to my phone when it had only 5% battery remaining. The ReVive recharged the phone to 100% within 2 hours using my own iPhone cable and if I can believe the LEDs on the back, which showed 50% remaining, I still had enough juice left to top off the phone later. So far so good.

The real test, and the reason for my purchase was it's solar capabilities. I followed the instructions and set the depleted ReVive outside in the bright sun for approximately 6 hours. As advertised, the LEDs showed a charge of 50%. I then plugged it into my phone when it was showing 60% battery life and wanted to see how long the ReVive would last. After about 35 minutes my phone was at 80% and that's when the ReVive shut off. So ultimately I got another 20% of battery life added to my phone from a 50% recharged solar unit. That's not what I would call great results, but in an emergency 20% is better than nothing. I'll just have to remember to conserve while on the mountain.

Before I decided to spend the money on this charger I had Scosche SolBAT II Solar Powered Backup Battery and Charger. The first one I had worked as long as you didn't use the cable they provided, but I left it on a plane and bought another one. The second one fried and you could smell the electrical smoke from a component blowing up internally and I sent it back. The third one wouldn't charge my Droid 2 at all so I returned it and bought this one.

I love that it has a diagram that tells you how quickly it will charge as well as the percentages. It is a bonus it has a light...but a feature I wasn't particularly "looking" for. I also like that it has a switch so you get to choose whether it dissipates energy or not. I have had no issues charging my Droid 2 with this charger and would recommend it to friends. I will update if there are any issues that come up later.

Arrived when stated and with appropriate accessories. I haven't tried the suction cups yet.

Note: LED light and charger will not work at the same time. Not an issue for me...but it should be noted.

This isn't really what the description implies. You can't charge your phone directly from the solar cell, it's more like a spare battery that can be used to charge your phone. The solar cell can't charge the phone directly. There are three ways to charge the battery in this device. 1) You can either plug it into a wall outlet which will take 3 hours to charge to 100%. 2) You can plug it into a USB port which will take 5 hours to charge to 100%. 3) You can set it in the sun and let the battery charge from the solar cell which takes 6 hours to charge to 50%. You can't charge the battery in this device over 50% from the solar cell, it just isn't powerful enough. All this information is printed on the back of the device. So if you want to charge your phone, the battery in this device has to be charged first, then you use it to charge your phone. The solar cell doesn't charge the battery while you are charging your phone either. It can't charge your phone directly from the sun.
