Brand New Universal Solar 11-in-One Battery Charger with Meter Charges 2 "D" - "C" - "AA" - "AAA" Batteries Designed for charging most popular types of rechargeable batteries: D size (UM-1), C size (UM-2), AA size (UM-3), AAA size (UM-4) and 7 different size GUM (Prismatic) Batteries! Description: This is the most versatile battery charger available on the market today. The solar panel is incorperated into the hinged cover which can be angled for maximum sun exposure. It goes beyond ordinarily employing the sunlight strength to charge your Ni-Cad batteries. Its in-built meter shows you the following conditions: -The strength of the sun -The strength of the current out-put from the solar panel -The time required to fully charge the different types of batteries This battery charger incorporates a built-in blocking diode to prevent reverse flow of electricity from charged batteries during storage. It is environmentally safe, cost efficient and trouble free. The polycarbornate transparent cover makes the charger weather resistant.

Well if power grid ever goes down at least I can recharge batteries.
Dennis N. Tuescher
If I covered two of the 16, the meter dropped down to what it would be on a cloudy day - right near the bottom.

Even though they are working, they do not seem to hold the charge as well the second time around.

...you really do need full sunlight to get a full charge. I live in the Northeast, so the number of fully sunny days isn't as much as in some places. As an example of what I mean by "full sunlight", I had it out on a very bright sunny day and the meter read fully charging. There are 16 cells on the solar panel. If I covered just one of these 16 cells with my finger, the meter dropped to 50%. If I covered two of the 16, the meter dropped down to what it would be on a cloudy day - right near the bottom.

I mostly tested it with AA and AAA batteries and they held their charges fine. But not knowing whether the batteries are fully charged is a bit of a pain, requiring you to get a separate battery tester. Fortunately these are cheap. [...]

Given the price of this item, even if you throw in the price of a battery tester, I'd say it's worth having. Get around the problem of inconsistent sunny days by having several extra rechargeable batteries you can use while waiting for a prime day. Just make sure you have a plug-in model as backup in case you really need a quick charge. I haven't used mine since I got this unit, so it seems to be practical for every day use.

This solar powered battery charger is a terrific item for camping or just around the house. It's a terrific energy saver, as it powers rechargeable batteries of any size in a matter of hours, and the charge lasts and lasts.

We have been very happy with the unit. It is well constructed and sturdy, and will hold up to standard use. In other words, the plastic is industrial grade, much more sturdy your average Chinese battery operated toy.

While well designed and capable of a reported 160 mA in full sunlight, don't expect fast charging - ever. While you could stick it in your window, this unit benefits more from outdoor use. It is true that covering even one solar panel will diminish output capacity akin to a cloudy day. But even a brightly overcast day may generate some power. Better for the sunny states.

Even when using the battery braces AAA and AA cells tend to pop out if you over handle the charger. If you snap the unit shut this could dislodge one of the cells enough to prevent any charging. Thus, you could waste all day waiting for the charge which never happens.

9 hours of full sunlight reportedly charges a 1500 mA D cell. But a good rechargable D cell holds at least 4 amps or more. The reported charge times for the cells is based on a minimalist cell. Unless you are a hobbiest who gets a kick out of "free energy" (and who doesn't) this probably would not serve the camping enthusiast well if you are charging anything more than two AA's a day.

Charging Primary Cells - ATTEMPT AT YOUR OWN RISK! Risk of leaking, injury or fire.

In researching information on batteries I read it IS possible to recharge SOME primary alkaline cells. Results vary depending on the battery make, depleted state and charging at LOW current. In full sunlight this unit averages 80 mA per cell, so I thought - "Why not."

Keep in mind I did this fully understanding I may destroy the unit due to corrosion or fire from leaking or exploding cells. If you hear a battery "pop", it exploded.

I tested two Radio Shack AAA gold Alkalines which date back at least 5 years. Slightly better make than the cells they have today. They measured about 0.9 volts and pretty much stopped working. 0.

I ordered the solar battery charger the evening of April 15, 2009, and less that 48 hours later, it was delivered to me via USPS. I find this to be a prompt service. The battery charger itself is better than what I anticipated; it is very light, well made and designed, and solid looking. I immediately placed two of my old dead rechargeable AA batteries in the charger and put it on the window panel; the meter worked as described and my batteries were fully charged after only three hours of California hot afternoon sun. What I found amazing was that after I used the batteries all night in my radio, they were still going strong 12 hours later; previously, the batteries lasted only a few hours after being recharged the conventional way by electricity.

Also, today, Saturday, April 18, less than 60 hrs after I ordered, I received also the solar batteries. I am very happy with my Solar Charger and the delivery service; I will recommend it to all of my neighbors and friends.

Thank you Amazon for providing great products and reliable shipping services. T.A.

Solar panel is very powerful, it charges alkaline, NiCd and even NiMh batteries. However it will not charge completely dead batteries, lithium batteries or any other battery that says:heavy duty, super heavy duty or dry cell batteries.Note: Keep an eye on the charger every 30 minutes to an hour when charging alkaline batteries in it because they will leak if they stay in the hot sun too long or if they are charged too long. And I will recommend this to anyone.

This is a great idea but it should have more solar panel power, could take weeks to charge a 10,000 milliamp hour D cell size battery. You do the math max current is 180 mA,(in full sun) 10000 divided by 180 equals ? That's right 55 and a half hours. That's how many days of full sun? But in todays world this is better than not having, every house should have at least something like this.
