3.0 out of 5 stars Nice and compact, but has serious shortcomings October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase
I bought this because I wanted something small to keep in my briefcase for when I needed extra power for my BlackBerry Tour or iPod Touch, and also because of this product's claimed solar recharge ability. The product comes with lots of different tips (though remarkably not one for the Kindle 1, which was a disappointment).

When I initially reviewed this product I gave it four stars, but based on my further experience using it and a recent serious emergency discussed in my latest update below, I have downgraded it to three stars and do not recommend it for emergency use with a BlackBerry.

1. This product did power my iPod Touch for two hours. But then this product took 3 1/2 hours to recharge in an AC outlet. I have another portable charger (Tekkeon MP-1800) that is a little bulkier, but provides a much longer charge time and has a shorter recharge time. A portable charger should not take a lot longer to recharge than the charge it supplies. And for a long plane or car ride, this unit would quickly "run out of gas."

2. When this product is charging in an AC outlet, you can simultaneously power a gadget. That is fairly standard with any portable power supply. I was hoping, however, that I might be able to do the same thing with a solar charge after I had sunlight on this unit for a couple of hours. No such luck. Instead this unit powered my iPod Touch for only a short time after being exposed to the sun for a couple of hours and not reaching a full charge. This means that if you go to the beach, for example, and forgot to charge your iPod, and have used up the power on this product, then you will be out of luck for many hours.

3. Any portable power source eventually loses power.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing January 12, 2010
I received this as a gift, and was quite excited when I first got it. It seemed to work very well, it charged from the lamps in my house, it had many different kinds of connectors and it was a very handy size. But, as soon as I started to use it, I realized how poorly made it really was. The seller claims that it will work for any BlackBerry, but it wouldn't work for my Curve 8310 from the beginning. On top of that, the BlackBerry connector broke after just a few attempted uses. I have tried it on my iPod, and it gets the job done, but the battery doesn't last very long and it takes about 7 hours if you want to charge from solar. It does charge from three sources, but charge time isn't very good. The quality of the product is quite poor also. I was reading the labeling on the device, and some of the lettering was upside down. The device will tell me that it is fully charged when I push the "Status" light, but I will then plug it in and it charges for hours. The thing really isn't well made. Don't buy it. The thing is more trouble then it's worth.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY JUNK! August 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
I had to give this item a 1 star rating because there isn't a ZERO star rating option!

I got this solar charger to provide backup power for my Amazon Kindle and yes, the charger was adaptable to the Kindle USB port. I dutifully charged it up using the USB power feed from my computer, and then it simply wouldn't work to provide power to my Kindle.

This thing is JUNK!

The batteries will not hold a charge over night. It is worthless.

Do not buy it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Waste of Time May 2, 2010
By amp1276
Verified Purchase
At first it looked like it would work fine even though it appeared cheaply made. It charged fine and the first time I plugged it into my iPhone it recognized it. So I let it stay charged for a few days and when it came time to really use it to charge my iPhone it lasted for 30 seconds and then wouldn't work at all anymore. My guess is something shorted out inside. The website had absolutely no support what so ever. I am getting a refund from Amazon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, but... December 19, 2009
By BGS
A solar charger for cellphones and personal electronics is a great idea, but this product falls short of greatness in several important respects.

Putting power in: the solar charging aspect of this is kind of a gimmick. I guess if you knew were going to be out in the desert holding still for hours under a blazing sun you might be able to depend on the little solar panel for some juice, but for most uses you'll have to plug this thing in somewhere. Unfortunately, that requires using a special cable. So if you forgot or misplaced the only cable in the world that will charge it you won't be able to charge this battery. If you lose their power-in cable, you'll have to buy another one from the manufacturer.

Taking power out: you also need a different special cable to get the power out of this thing, since it uses a female mini usb out the likes of which I've never seen before. Normal usb to mini usb cables won't do you any good. If you lose their special power-out cable, you'll have to buy another one from the manufacturer.

Small design: I like the look of this battery, but that small size is deceiving since you can't do anything with it unless you have the special cables mentioned above. It's also slippery to hold on to.

Rapid drain: the battery drains all by itself very quickly, so you can't just charge it up and depend on it being charged when you need it.

Suggestions for the manufacturer: make this battery work with conventional cables for both input and output; figure out how to make the battery hold a charge better.

Suggestion for consumers: take a look at the Powersource Mobile Mini by Xantrex. It's not solar, but it holds triple the charge and has a built in mini usb output that's perfect for recharging RAZR's, etc, on the go.
