Too Slow To Be Useful
2/5 Avg. Product Rating
Age Range: 13-25
Now, I have never personally used this product, but my father bought one for a 10-day backpacking trip we took together, and after seeing him wrestle with this product firsthand, I feel comfortable reviewing it. From right out of the box, this charger is incredibly slow. I understand that this just might be the best solar power can do with our current technology, but when we were on the trail, we struggled to find enough time to fully charge the solar kit. It only charges in absolute direct sunlight, so in the mornings or afternoons, when we were at camp, it wouldnt charge. If there is any cloud cover, it also wouldnt charge. Throughout the whole trip, we were unable to charge his phone over 60%. On subsequent trips, this charger has only decreased in effectiveness. Finally, after only a year of use, it has stopped working in any meaningful capacity, as it can only be charged by USB.
