During this review, I am going to be comparing the Sunforce 22007 Coleman 7.5W Folding Panel to the Goal Zero Nomad 7, which is the only other solar charger that I have had experience with and the product with which it is competing. Right out of the box, I was impressed by its compactness. I opened its velcro latch and spread it out. The charger has square, polycrystalline solar panels that make efficient use of space. The panels don't have a perfect appearance, as the horizontal conductive lines are inconsistent, but I don't expect this to hurt the panel's performance. Along the edges it has rope loops that are meant to be attachment points, which are comparable to the Nomad 7. On the back of the panel, there is a zipper enclosure that includes a power regulator which has a permanently attached 12 Volt adapter and a female, USB port. When you unzip the pouch all the way, the 12 Volt adapter tends to fall out. I couldn't wait to test it out, so I ran outside and pointed it toward the sun. At 3 in the afternoon on a clear day, I measured 5 Volts and .83 amps (A little over 4.15 watts). Compared this to the Goal Zero Nomad 7, which measured 5 Volts at .65 amps (3.28 watts) under the same conditions. I am guessing this difference in performance is due to the 0.5 extra watt of power rating from the Coleman Sunforce panel, as well as a better USB power regulator.

I tested the panel in low light conditions: An overcast morning, and it didn't produce any power, whereas the Goal Zero Nomad 7 did produce 5 Volts at 40 mA. This difference is probably due to polycrystalline solar panels vs monocrystalline solar panels, which are known for the low light efficiency. This was a very low light test.

I don't have any special equipment to give you hard numbers on voltage or amperage but I can tell you that it will charge my iPad2 to 87% with out the need for an external battery pack like my Nomad 7 system does.
The unit is not as "universal" as the Goal Zero system, but it does have a 12 cigarette lighter permanently attached for 12 volt charging and a single USB plug.

Edit 1-11-13
I'm updating my review and taking away 2 starts as it no longer functions after being exposed to moisture/rain. I plugged in my panel to charge a lawn tractor battery that powers my gate on a cloudy day. It started to rain, but I was not worried as the charger was out of the direct rain fall and it is "weatherproof". The next day I went out with my volt meter and was not getting any output from the 12 volt plug or any power from the USB plug.

I still think this panel is a good overall deal, but it is not weatherproof.

Product works more or less as described, but people buying it to charge their smartphones should be made aware of a few issues:

-Generally speaking, the panels work best when held still. I tried backpacking for an hour with it attached to my pack, and it did not charge my battery at all.
-It needs to be put somewhere where they are no shadows. This includes shadows from people walking by. ANY interruption will stop the charge to your phone. This is important because:
-For most phones, power starts and stops will cause your screen to turn on! This wastes battery. A few brief shadows per minute and you could end up with a net battery loss.
-Lastly, you can't leave most phones with it in the sun. Your battery will overheat and cease to charge.

So there you have it. If you leave it completely undisturbed in the sun and cover your phone, it should work fine. If you're planning on bringing it with you to the beach or something, it's probably not worth it.

The Good: light weight, charges pretty fast for a solar panel, has webbing straps to hang from my backpack while i wear it on a hike or MTB ride, very tough and flexible panels that wont shatter/crack easily i dropped it a few times while camping and riding my bike.I recently my HTC Rezound was almost dead so i plugged it in and threw the panel on my dash went in the grocery store and came out about 45 mins later and it was at 50%. this thing is pretty cool I cant wait to take it camping/backpacking.
The bad: USB plug is in a weird spot and there is not much clearance around it so its kinda tight to plug it in because the zipper is close to the plug. The 12v Car charger is permanently attached to the panel and it is bulky(I just cut it off because I wanted it to pack flat)
Great for: backpackers, busy people who love to use their phone/GPS/Ipod while off the grid.
Over all I like it a lot, and the downsides are very minor it out performs a similar one sold at harbor freight that is heavier and bulkier and only puts out 5 watts.

I purchased this unit to supplement my Emergency Preparedness preps. I also have a Goal Zero Nomad 7. Believe it or not, this unit puts out 1.4 more volts than the larger Goal Zero (and it's twice the price)

NOTE: if you are looking for a solar charger for your Iphone5 or newer IPad, Neither this not the GZ Nomad 7 is ticket. Yes, it will charge the phone, as long as the sun NEVER gets blocked. You will need to babysit the phone and restart if it is interrupted at all. a more solid choice is to purchase this with a power pack such as the Goal Zero 10 Plus (a 4 "AA" or "AAA" charger) or the Anker Astro 3 External Battery (10,000 mAh). You could purchase either of these power packs as a stand alone, as they will charge from your PC or the wall, however they also can charge from the Solar Pannel. With this system, you can charge your power pack during the day (even by hanging the solar charger from your pack while hiking, and charge your phone from the power pack at night.

I HIGHLY recommend this.
