Bought this for a 5 day backcountry ski trip. The XTG did get a recharge in the sun, and it did recharge my phone somewhat. I only give it 3 stars because it does not have enough power to recharge my phone to even 50%. So it works, and I will use it again, but it was not quite as successful as I hoped.

More positively, the built in flashlight works great and can be used for a surprisingly long time. I would give that function 5 stars, but my main purpose was recharging my phone.

I'm surprised this does not have better reviews, but it may be due to expectations of the unit. No the solar will not charge your phone to 100%, this unit is for emergency use and can potentially charge your device up to 50% under the best scenario. I did my own tests with the unit and using an extended phone battery was able to recharge it to 20% quickly if the unit was left outside on a normal sunny day. I dropped the unit from a height of 3 feet on to a hard surface and it landed on its side. Where it hit the orange plastic piece popped out and was easily snapped back into place. I retested all the features multiple times, including the solar function and noticed no issues with the unit.

In my opinion, for such a small unit it comes with multiple useful features and can keep you connected or give you enough power to make the necessary calls needed in many types of scenarios. While there may be other choices for an emergency or solar charger, this unit is small and lightweight, which is perfect for those who are concerned about the amount of weight they carry, especially in a backpack.

Pros:

Cost
Small size
Lightweight
Multiple features and options for charging

Cons:

Devices may recharge up to 50% under the best scenario, but expect more of a 20-40% range with most devices.

UPDATE: 1/2015 - With the market becoming increasingly competitive in the solar charger market, you can now find higher quality chargers with much higher capacities for just a little more money. For around the same price you can now find many solar chargers here on Amazon in the 10,000mah range, 1800mah does not cut it anymore for the current price of this device. While this unit I reviewed is still viable, it has become outdated over the past few years and I would not suggest getting this unless the price drops to 20 or less. The price it is currently at now is simply too high for the competitive market it competes in.

I bought this in order to charge my Droid Razer and it does great. I use my razer outdoors in conjuction with the Delorme Inreach so my phone dies fairly quickly. This helps out alot. The clasp on the top of the device is maybe more for hanging the charger in the sun but i wouldnt recommend clipping it to a pack and expect it to be there later. The lights on the device are very bright and basically take away the need to pack a flashlight. Great product for a very reasonable price. I hope this review helps you in you decision to buy or not.

Been using this charger/flashlight for 6 months now.

5 MINUTE REVIEW (10 second review is below)
==================
CHARGER:

Has 1 USB port like on computers and 1 micro USB port like on your everyday android smartphone. The cable that it comes with plugs into both of these USB ports so you can use it as a parallel charger (charge the charger and your phone same time). Just plug your phone charger in the solar charger's micro port, then plug the cable from the regular usb port on the solar charger and the other end of the cable to your phone. Now both are devices are being charged simultaneously!

This device charges my android once and dies. Good, considering it's only 2 AA batteries and a .25W solar panel. It takes 2 days (YES I SAID TWO) of FULL sunlight for this to get to 75% charged. Which is also only as much as the solar panel can charge it. So unless you charge it like you charge your phone (via USB or AC outlet) then the charge LED will never go green (100%). The best conditions to use this in, POWER OFF your phone, charge the phone while the panel is in full sunlight, remove when phone is done to stop trickle, and you might be able to charge twice this way.

Charging non-droid phones you can do about 5 no problem. I have a verizon flip and a tracfone slider and they never drain the battery in the charger. They also have a 3 week standby where as a droid usually has about a day. So, if you got a cheap phone then this is a great buy for you!

FLASHLIGHT:

Beam is bright and with built in pocket clip on opposite end can illuminate a whole room when clipped to a backpack or belt loop for hands free operation.

I received this on time and in perfect condition, thanks for that. I wanted a product exactly like this for charging my T-mobile my touch 4g. When using the gps on the phone my phone battery dies within just a few hours. I fully charged it after receiving it and the battery light turned red when charging and turned green when fully charged. I then started charging my phone which was nearly dead and after approx 3 hours the recharging device died and the red indicator went out. I then plugged the charger in to my computer via usb and left it overnight (approx 10 hours). The red light is still on and its not fully charged. (I just figured it would charge after like 5 hours). I tried charging it using the solar panel but the charging indicator would not come on. All in all I think it lacks the performance I was looking for but for $30 maybe I expected to much.
