Customer Reviews

Very good construction.
Tom Ondo
The solar charger only charges the internal XTG battery to "50%," and this amount does not provide much charging power to my cellphone.
Steve
It charged 100% after about an hour but when connected to the iphone, it was only enough to charge my phone less than 20%.

This charger comes with the panel, a standard mini-USB cable and suction cups to mount it to a window. I have an IPhone 3G. It does not come with an IPhone adapter cable, but mine plugs into the USB_OUT port just fine, no problems. The mini_IN plug is for charging the device using a computer or laptop if there is no sun. There are indicator lights on the back. Press the center button and 25-50-75-100% illuminates to give you an estimate of charge remaining on the panels internal battery. Nice little LED light. charged quickly in sunlight and just as quickly plugged into desktop. Great to have for power outages or when the elusive plug in an airport just doesn't materialize. This is a great little product worth the price shipped quickly and arrived on time. Very pleased and should probably be a spokesperson for the thing they way I've been showing it off everyone asks when they see it. I charged an almost dead IPhone and it still had 50% charge left. PLUS you can use the phone while the panel is charging it in the sun with the phone connected "real time". This is very very close in size to the iphone itself. Not big at all.

Been into Solar Chargers for the past 6 months. Interest in solar charges grew from wanting to be prepared for emergencies. The electronic devices that I have are powered through AA, AAA, and USB sources. Therefore, my focus was on finding a solar charger that can power one or any combination of the three. I was hopeful for this solar charger would be able to charge my iPhone and Sanyo Eneloop USB Battery Charger. The Sanyo Eneloop USB Battery Charger can charge either up to two AA or AAA batteries at a time. This is the review of the XTG SOL1500 Premium Solar Charger.

First, this solar charger appeared to be of quality build. It is roughly the size of an iPhone, but significantly lighter. The item arrived in new condition, well aligned, and finished nicely. Second, the solar panel is able to charge the internal Lithium Ion battery very fast. I never had the charger completely drained, but it did not take more than several hours in full sun to completely charge the internal battery. Third, the device successfully charged my iPhone, iPod Shuffle, and Sanyo Eneloop USB Battery Charger. Fourth, the internal battery charge indicator is so helpful and useful. Four separate LEDs can light up to indicate 20, 50, 80, or 100% charge with a push of a button. Last is the LED light which is quite powerful and unexpected.

I would improve this device with relatively minor adjustments. First, I would not mind more capacity. Second, due to personal preference in the way I store electronic devices, I wish the lithium ion battery were removable and interchangeable. On that note, having an internal, non-removable battery sort of limits the life of the device overall. Keep in mind that these are very picky things which that would not bother most people.

I bought this product knowing that it can only be charged up to 50 percent in the sun and the rest can be charged up by hooking up to a computer. The product feels a little bit cheap but so far has held up. I was able to charge up my phone twice in a two day period starting from 100 percent and leaving the solar panel in the sun. This would be a much better product if the panel could charge all the way back to 100 percent. So the solar panel charger is pretty cool but the technology is almost there but not quite great yet.

I ordered both an Opteka BP-SC4000 Solar Charger and the XTG Technology Solar Charger, just to compare the two. I was looking for a compact, lightweight, solar-rechargeable backup power supply for my iPod Touch, satelite GPS unit, and cell phone. Bottom line: Except for the Opteka's User Guide, which is practically worthless, I found the Opteka unit to be superior in almost every way to the XTG model; here's why:

1. The specs for the Lithium-polymer battery on the Opteka BP-SC4000 claim 4000mAh capacity -almost three times the capacity of the battery on the XTG Solar Charger.

2. The maximum solar charge rate for the Opteka is spec'd at 250mA - more than twice the 120mA rate specified for the XTG. This should translate into significantly faster recharging of the Opteka's onboard battery for the same amount of draw-down. (Example: If your cell phone, during recharging, draws 1000ma, it will take about 4 hours of direct sun to replace the charge in the Opteka vs approx 8.5 hours for the XTG.)

3. The Opteka BP-SC4000 comes with a complete assortment of adapters to accomodate just about any small, USB-rated, battery-powered device. The XTG came with only a USB-to-mini-USB cord.

4. The workmanship on the XTG seems a bit shoddy, with noticeable gaps at the edges of the plastic sealant that coats the solar panel. The Opteka, by comparison, appears sturdy and well made.

5. The Opteka weighs about 7oz compared to 5oz for the smaller XTG (significant, perhaps, only to ounce-parsing backpackers like me). But those two extra ounces appear to translate into significantly better performance that is well worth the weight.

6. It took a little over an hour for the fully-charged Opteka to completely charge my iPod Touch.
