I have purchased this solar panel based on some of the reviews that it can charge well portable 5V USB devices. I have actually bought 2 of these panels and I can put some numbers based on a field test I have conducted.

This product is rated as 14W power output at 5V meaning that each port theoretically can output using ohms law 14W / 5V = 2.8/2 ports= 1.4 amps.

These tests are done between 3pm and 7pm in Lancashire with cloudy and sunny periods.

First I would like to state that the website solarizen.com there is a statement that says that these panels do not charge when it is cloudy; it is not true, it does charge but the charge may not be enough to charge a large battery that may need some charge to recognise it, but may be enough to charge a small portable USB appliance. Another thing to note is that choice of USB cables does make a significant difference when charging from a solar panel as outputs can vary quite significantly and affects charging efficiency.

Using an ammeter and a portapow USB fast charge cable, I managed to pull from a single port around 100mA on a very cloudy and rainy day to charge 2 Anker 15Amp batteries. When it is sunny, it manages to pull out from a single port between 600mAh to 1000mAh which would in theory take between 15 hours and 25 hours provided that the sun is out for that long.

I have also tried to chain these panels together using a Y cable and the difference is noticeable when the skies are cloudy; from 100mAh to 250mAh when combined with a Delock Y cable. When it is sunny, both panels will not output double capacity; from my field test, I noticed only 200mAh jump from 700mAh to 900mAh when charging with both panels at the same time.

Awesome solar charger. Great build quality. In full sunlight it charged my iPhone 5 as quickly as the regular wall charger in a mains socket and did a good job even in bright overcast conditions. The little pouch that contains the USB ports is great as you can tuck your devices in there whilst charging. Very happy.

Bought the 14W version for a camping trip to charge phones and 18650 batteries (using a usb charger). I was really pleased with how well it worked and it usually charged at the same rate as a usb wall charger. I managed to fully charge an 18650 battery (2900mah) and keep two phones charged each day for 5 days. On the 6th day it rained and was very overcast, this was the only day that I couldn't really get much of a charge on anything. On a mildly overcast day the solar panel still worked fine, on a very overcast day it still charged but very slowly; but that's fine as I think that is extremely good performance from such a portable solar panel.
I did find that placement of the panel was key to getting a good charge and if you are leaving it for several hours you'll need to move it around a bit to keep it in the sun. I used a battery app on andriod that shows the charging current to help position the panel and it seemed to work quite well.
Overall I doubt very much if you would find a better product than this one for the price and if you are wanting one to charge usb devices on the go then I highly recommended it.

I bought this for use in the English summer in early August for use with my Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Note 10.1 tablet and 15,000mAh Anker portable battery.

After 2 weeks of only charging in bright sunlight between midday at 4pm I noticed that although the batteries were charging a decent amount according to their meters they were discharging faster and I assumed it was only because of a fault with the charger. I plugged in my portable hard drive which had behaved perfectly in the past and watched within 30 seconds the battery level drop from 20% to 5%.

After I got back to civilisation I noticed that they were still discharging faster than previously, so my S3 used to hold a decent 10 hours was dead after 5 hours. My tablet also had an average of 10 hours previously but it's max was 3 hours. As a result I had to purchase a replacement S3 battery and send my tablet back under warranty to get the battery replaced. The portable battery pack wasn't used enough with it to notice a difference.

A great idea, strong build quality and definitely made for the outdoors but it just destroyed my batteries. I sent it back to Anker explaining the issue but have heard nothing since.

Ok so firstly, by way of disclosure, I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation, and I promised to write a review that is fair and honest.

***EDIT - MAY 2014***
so, just got back from camping in Cornwall at the end of May, not perfect Summer sunshine, but some decent periods of sun to test out the 14w panel. Results? Well I had it sat on my dashboard in the car for 2 hours and it fully charged the iPhone 5 from 50%. Pretty impressive I'd say.

*****EDIT - JULY 2014****
ok took it to Tenerife last week, tested under glorious sunshine whilst sunbathing around the pool. So first point, yes, it can be taken through airport security (at Manchester and Tenerife South anyway....) for those concerned about recent security measures. Secondly as a word of warning- if you are charging a phone or tablet while sunbathing, please make sure your phone is well shaded or ideally under a towel or something. It's not enough to place under the solar charger which itself gets a little hot, and my iphone stopped working due to overheating and needed to cool down before it was happy to play again.
Anyway, in the glorious sun, no concerns at all, my wife's kindle and my iphone were both topped up very happily in the Tenerife sun at the same time in no time at all. Again watch out for cloud cover disrupting your experience (or indeed a neighbouring parasol) and finally, please don't underestimate just how much a cheap unbranded cable (especially apple lightning ones) can upset performance. I didn't realise I'd brought a "fake" with me until after a full afternoon so all that solar energy was wasted!!
****

Well, firstly the delivery, prompt and on time, the packaging is simple a straightforward, no fuss to get in, no need for scissors.
