I'm a bit dissapointed with this product. After leaving it in direct sunlight for over 20 hours, the charger capacity was still at 50%. When directly in the product details, it states 13 hrs for a FULL charge via solar. That being said, the main reason I bought this was to have a solar charger with enough Amps to charge my phones (EVO, GS3) AND tablet (Galaxy Tab 10.1), which it does. (FYI, The tab needs to be turned off to charge).

At 50% solar charged, it will only provide about 25% battery recharge to the tablet and approx 60% to my phone. So, granted it does work. But its unacceptable for a solar charger to not be able to charge 100% within 20 hrs of direct sun exposure.

I followed the instructions as stated by charging 100% via USB first and that provided 100% battery to my EVO and about 25% to the tablet. I'm torn on whether or not I keep this.

So... a little preamble to my video - I shot this in my car in the middle of the day, so it's kind of hard to see how bright the LED on the XL really is. The light is actually super bright. There are three LED bulbs in there so it gives off a lot of light when it's dark out, and my video doesn't really do it justice. Also, I apologize for the poor video quality. I initially shot it in 1080p, but the file was too big to upload so I had to downgrade it to a more memory-friendly setting. Anyways, I hope you like the video and find it at least somewhat helpful. This solar charger is awesome and I take it with me everywhere. I use my droid razr pretty hard, so I need all the juice I can get, and since I never seem to be near an outlet when I need one, this thing has been a lifesaver. Places I've taken it with me so far include: beach, camping, concert, and hiking. Also, one last thing. I reccomend using the OEM usb charge cable that your device came with because some generic USB cables are shoddy and they just don't seem to work as well on average.

I picked this up to use while hiking and camping, and so far it's been great. It works well with my Samsung galaxy s3, and the light is a cool and useful addition. I just throw this guy on my backpack while we're out hiking or lay it out at the campsite for a few hours. Highly recommended!

This Solar Charger charges my Kindle Fire no problem.I used it a half dozen times to make sure.I received the wrong attachment clip to connect to the add-on solar panel and contacted the seller who personally called me to confirm what was needed and then sent Me the correct part in around two days.I noticed the charger takes around 7 1/2 hrs to recharge via USB.I haven't actually timed the solar charge.It charges multiple small items like cell phones mp3 players etc. before needing to be recharged.So far so good....

I picked this up after spending an entire afternoon, from like 11:30 until a 7:30 game, at Lambeau Field for Family Day, tailgating. I had my son with me, we both had our iPhones and iPads. I didn't mind if his things got low on battery, but I wanted to make sure my phone stayed working so I had it available during the game. So every once in a while I'd plug it into the cigarette charger, and start the car and let it run for a bit, getting it back up to 80 or 85%. I realized I needed something to help me charge stuff up away from home.

So I did some digging and found this unit, and figured it was worth a shot. I liked that it wasn't strictly a solar charger, that you could charge it up via USB or wall outlet as well. On the down side you can't "charge and play", but for me that was less of a requirement.

I ordered this, and two extra solar panels. I fully charged the unit via the wall outlet, then turned an ipad onto one of my clock programs that keeps the screen lit without sleeping, and let it run down, then plugged it into this and let it run this down as well overnight while I had the LED light turned on. I then set it out on my patio table and let it charge itself back up. I had it sitting out all day, but I did not angle it to keep it tracking the sun directly (was busy doing other things). And about four oclock the sun's shadow is hitting the table anyway. It did not get fully charged during that stretch (was only about 6 or 7 hours in direct sunlight but not perpendicular to it at all times) but I didn't expect it to from what they said. The following day I did manage to get it topped off.

As many of the other reviews say the solar isn't all it's cracked up to be. Sure after two days on the dash of my car in the Southern California desert I only had a 1/4 charge. This is better than no charge, but still for the price it should work better.

It has enough power in the battery to fully charge my Nexus 7.

It's way bigger then I expected.

The major disappointment was I needed to carry around a USB to a circle power port cord around just to charge it. I forgot the cable at home and had no way of charging it, other then sticking on my dash to find not enough power to charge my phone at the end of the day. I'm ordering another one that uses a Micro-USB that you can find anywhere to charge it.

The button is huge and will turn on the flashlight and check power.

The plastic seemed thicker but still weak. An aluminum case would have made me felt a little more ease as plastic warps in our desert sun.

The blue charging light is also annoying.

Some good things, the battery holds a lot of power and charged fast. comes with a lot of (semi-useless) accessories.
