When it comes to devices that charge your gadgets on the go, there are tons of external battery options out there, tons of portable solar panels and transportable solar panels out there, and finally, many crossover devices that are portable solar panels with built in external batteries.

Of all the choices out there today, one of the seemingly clunkiest has got to be the Joos Orange.

At 1.5 lbs, it's certainly not light, and at 5400mAh, it's weight to battery capacity ratio is far far below average. A 5400mAh battery can charge an iPhone 2.5 times. At that capacity, external batteries that have no solar panel or ruggedness are far far smaller. In fact, batteries of roughly 1.5lbs typically hold over 11,000mAh or more, more than double the capacity of the Joos Orange.

And solar panels, no matter how incredibly efficient, are still not very efficient at all.

So, why do I LOVE this solar panel battery so much?

Three main reasons and one small reason:

- FIRST, it's got the most efficient solar panel I've seen yet. Keeping in mind that I can't really tell the efficiency difference between a 3" solar panel, a folding textile based solar panel, and the Joos Orange panel, the only factor I can really use is how fast it charges. The Joos can charge its internal battery via the sun about 5% every hour, requiring 18-22 hours to fully charge. That would typically mean about 3 days of charging by sun to get one full charge of the 5400mAh built in battery. But since a fully charged Joos Orange battery charges an iPhone to 100% 2.5 times, the Joos battery really only needs about a 35-40% charge on itself in order to get an iPhone from 0-100%. Basically, that means just over 1 day of solar charging = 1 full iPhone charge.

Our boy scout troop spent a week in Glacier National Park this summer, and my Joos kept my Droid (original) alive all week. I'd leave it leaning against the tent in the morning, and it would be full when we returned in the evening. Then I'd charge the phone overnight.

Everyone else was recharging their phones in the cars or the bathroom at the campground - not me! I ended the week with a nearly-full battery in the Joos, despite running the phone down to 15% during the day (combination of poor cell signal, GPS addiction, and doubling as my primary camera). I took 300 photos on my Droid that week, as my pocket camera broke.

I'm currently running a Droid3 (bigger battery, but longer run-time than the original), and can charge it twice from a full JOOS. So I figure I can last 6 days without any sun.

Lastly, a tip: This thing performs great in the snow. On a bright March day with snow on the ground, I can get 1.8 watts - which is as good as I can get in June.

Another tip: Some phones like to turn the screen on when they're charging, thinking that they're on wall power. Turn off the screen and put the phone into "airplane mode" while charging, otherwise the phone will waste power.

I bought this charger for a month long trek I took to Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas in 2012. It was very remote and there weren't any opportunities to charge devices so I needed a solar charger. I did a lot of research and determined that this was the best one out there at the time.

The devices I wanted to charge were:

- iPhone (I loaded up the Gaia GPS, which is fantastic; just remember to load maps BEFORE going out of communication range, played music, and have the Nook app as well as a PDF app for reading material such as the Lonely Planet and some PDFs on trekking notes on the area)

- a Nook (first gen (the batteries last forever on that model); the iPhone Nook app was a backup)

- a USB battery charger (Sanyo eneloop, for AAA batteries for a headlamp/torch)

- Canon 5d camera battery

The Joos charger did a great job on the iPhone. I had no issues keeping it going for a full month on nothing but solar charging, and charged it maybe every 6 - 7 days. I put the Joos out in the sun for around 4 hours every afternoon when we reached the camp for the day. It kept up very well.

I only had to charge the Nook once and the Joos did great on that too. (I am going to get a new iPad this summer, but would keep the nook for reading on a trek simply because the battery lasts for ever between charges.)

The Joos in practice was poor for charging AAA batteries on the eneloop USB battery charger. My headlamp went dead after a couple of weeks, since I used it for a couple of hours per night reading in the tent. Charging two AAA batteries sucked the Joos dry (apologies) and the batteries didn't seem even close to fully charged.

Well I guess I will be the odd ball. I bought this unit for recharging my droid3 and I have to say it DID work. However the one gripe I have is the connector. The usb connector is very flimsy and sometimes wont make good contact. For example once I was down to 30% on my droid and I hooked it up. I waited for it to do its job. When I came back my droid was down to 10%. I looked at the cable and everything LOOKED connected however upon further examinations I found that when I wiggled the connection to the Joos the droid would show charging the show not charging. I tried diffrent cables and it was the same. It turned out the connector to the joos is very flimsy. They should have stuck to a more robust connector like a traditional usb connector. Don't get me wrong the solar portion works wonderful. You just have to make sure you have a good connnection.
