Contains REAL 13 cell amorphous silican solar panel and REAL LIR2440 rechargable lithium battery. Also contained on the tiny pc board inside is a charging regulator IC so you could charge from a 5 volt USB source. This type of solar cell does not require direct sunlight to create a charging current.
The cool USB charging feature (IC circuit) is worthless because the charging jack is non-standard and DX DIDN'T BOTHER TO SEND THE USB CHARGING CABLE AS DESCRIBED IN THE ADD.
This has a very thin, cheap case, and the glass solar panel is not backed by anything or otherwise protected. Drop it once, and that's the end, if it happens to hit the glass.
A couple of good parts to work into other projects, but to fragile (toylike) to depend on as an emergency light or the like.
