    posted by Stratocruser on 07/29/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very compact, the charge controller inside is VERY sophisticated, not just a linear voltage regulator.
    Cons:
    My Li battery inside started swelling up after a few months and lifted the top right off the device. BAAAAD! Didnt leak though...

    Perfect relationship between quality and price

    posted by capitanmus on 12/16/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I use it to charge my mp3 and my cellular phone when I go on a trip to the mountain. In the mountain you haven’t power points. It’s very light and the plastic cover is very strong.
    Cons:
    The charge is low but it isn’t really a problem if you think in the price of this item. The great problem is the connection. ...

    Good for the price, could be better.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It does what it's meant for, at a very cheap price. Easy to disassemble. Easy to use. The green led brightness depends on the light the panel gets, so you'll easily understand when the panel is charging and when it is not.
    Cons:
    Well, actually I've found many cons. First of all, it takes a very very long time to recharge if not hit by direct sunlight. I ...

    great for trips

    posted by ChickenSammich on 05/07/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    it's very light and compact. thinner than a deck of cards, about as big around as a standard postcard. battery capacity on a unit of this size isn't extraordinary but was good enough to maintain usage of my cell phone away from a charger. you can either cha...
    Cons:
    the green light (which comes on to show full charge when plugged in) stays on when charging in sunlight, so know way of knowing...

    Great product

    posted by Crog48 on 03/31/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Contains a Lithium battery so once its charged it should stay charged for a short while. Capacity seems good and charges well in direct sunlight. Checked the output and supplies a very constant 5.45 volts which is perfect for charging any USB powered devic...
    Cons:
    As with all solar panels you need a proper amount of sunlight to get a charge. Works pretty well when there is the sun through....

    Pretty handy portable battery pack!

    posted by Tummy57 on 02/16/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    You can use this as a portable battery pack, to charge anything that can be charged by regular USB power. It's also, of course, rechargeable by solar power, so you get "free" power for your devices!
    Cons:
    It seems to take a pretty long time to recharge the battery using just the solar power. Mind you, it's not been sunny, so it's ...
