5.0 out of 5 stars Works Fine.
I bought this to charge my Duracell Powerpack. I have it hanging in a window and it seems to working fine keeping the battery topped off. The Duracell input is a 2.5 mm and the panel has a 2.1 mm output connection but the panel included a simple 2.1 to 2.5 adapter. It works the best in direct sunlight when the unit is open and all the panels are exposed. I tried it...

I was using this in my car to charge the exact item shown, a Duracell Powerpack 600. I did not move it or abuse the wires or anything, but unfold it and plug it in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Fine., October 5, 2013

This review is from: Instapark® Mercury27 27-watt Compact Foldable Solar-powered Battery Charger with 12V Output for Instapark Mars20S, Duracell Powerpack Series & Wagan Power Dome Series and Dual USB Ports for Apple iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, Amazon Kindles, Android Smart Phones, Tablet Computers
I bought this to charge my Duracell Powerpack. I have it hanging in a window and it seems to working fine keeping the battery topped off. The Duracell input is a 2.5 mm and the panel has a 2.1 mm output connection but the panel included a simple 2.1 to 2.5 adapter. It works the best in direct sunlight when the unit is open and all the panels are exposed. I tried it with only 2 panels exposed and didn't work. It's light, compact and easy to transport. The quality seems to be good and the price is great compared to other 30W panels. I was hesitant buying this without any customer reviews but the price was so good I decided to take a chance and I'm happy with the product. - updating my review and bumping it up to 5 stars. It's a cloudy day and the charge light is still on hanging in an east facing window at 5pm.

It seemed to be working, though weakly, to trickle charge the powerpack (the green light flashes on the duracell when it's charging). After three weeks the green light stopped blinking. I did write the company about how to return it, and got no response. This was not a cheap buy and I am very disappointed.

Had faith in instapark because I already have their 5v,10watt folding panels.I set this one up at the kitchen table under the house light and it started charging my powerpack. Instapark and Amazon combo stand for dependablility.

1.0 out of 5 stars defective - power shuts off & back on every 1-min & 23-seconds, January 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Instapark® Mercury27 27-watt Compact Foldable Solar-powered Battery Charger with 12V Output for Instapark Mars20S, Duracell Powerpack Series & Wagan Power Dome Series and Dual USB Ports for Apple iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, Amazon Kindles, Android Smart Phones, Tablet Computers
Product appeared to be working properly, but after hearing the charging confirmation noise on my phone repeatedly, I started to look at it more closely. The device was in full sun, with no clouds, but the power would shut off and restart every 1-min & 23-seconds. Also confirmed issue with an LED light that would flicker off at the same time interval. This happened continuously for as long as the device was in the sun. Obviously some sort of design / hardware / software controller issue... clearly no QA/QC is done on these at their factory. Sending it back for refund. Very disappointing.

I like this device and look forward to using it more. I tested it yesterday on my iPhone and it charged up fine. I'm a little confused by the directions that came with it though: There is a conflict. First it says it must be fully in direct sunshine to work properly. On the other hand it then says you should not leave it in the direct sun very long because it will get too hot! Duh! Also I was expecting it to come with a couple of alligator clamps to use to connect to 12 V battery terminals. It claims to be able to charge such batteries and does come with a 10 foot cord. But the adaptor at the end of that cord seems to be for a laptop. Guess I will have to make my own adaptor.

Good product to have for emergencies. Won't be able to judge its real value until the occasion of a power failure arrives. It is not a big price to pay to have the ability to charge up small appliances and tablet.
