5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, June 13, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Solar Charger & 4000mAh Power Bank (Black) with 2.1A USB Charging Port , Carabiner Clip by ReVIVE - Works with Apple , Samsung , HTC & More Smartphones & Rechargeable Devices! (Electronics)
I was looking for a solar recharger for long bike rides and hiking/camping/mountaineering etc. This works great! When I got it, I fully charged it using USB as recommended, and then tried to fully drain it. I charged my phone, iPod, and finally had to hook up my MotoACTV and let it run with Bluetooth and GPS enabled. Amazing capacity on this thing!

It is a bit difficult to actually fully charge this thing on solar alone, but it does well enough to charge up my phone and MotoACTV at the end of the day. The included locking biner is a nice touch. It isn't climbing spec, but it is a lot lighter than a climbing locker.

And a note on customer service- This comes with a protective film on the panel. I went to take it off, and the top was actually tucked under the case. I thought maybe it was supposed to be permanent and I screwed up trying to remove it, so I emailed support. I had a response in minutes. I wrote later asking about additional panels, and again, a response in minutes.

Final note- it comes with a part for hooking up additional panels, and the manual states you can buy additional panels, but they don't actually make the panels yet (as of 6/13/12).

I just ordered this product and I clicked on the links provided by The Genie for the add on panels, but they are not available. Can you please provide an update on their availability? I also own the smaller Restore and its add on panel and I am very happy with the quality. Customer service from the Accessory Genie was excellent!

So are you supposed to take off the film?

Yes, customer support said it is a temporary protective film.

You know I clicked on the comments link to ask this very same question?

Also, how many USB ports are on this charger for charging other devices?

Sorry Jeff, I must have missed the notification about the comment. There is only one USB port.
