Charge your gadgets directly from the solar panel - much more efficient than other products which use a built in battery pack that needs to be charged before your gadgets can be. 2 voltage regulated USB output sockets to charge the latest smartphones and tablets from Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia etc directly at high speed. Works with smartphones, tablets, bluetooth headphones, satnavs, and other small devices which charge from a computer or a 5V mains charger. Powerful enough to trickle charge in cloudy conditions, making it useful all year round. We recommend using this with a battery pack such as the "PortaPow Slim" which supports trickle charging so you can capture the Sun's energy even when you're not charging your gadgets or there's too little light to charge them directly at a decent speed.
Woven into a tough waterproofed polyester fabric case making it suitable for use in the rain, a pocket on the back keeps the USB sockets protected. Folds shut with magnetic clasps to keep the panel compact and protected while on the move. 10 mounting loops around the panel to attach it to a backpack, bicycle, etc. Uses a textured surface to capture more light, and is PET laminated for durability. The pocket is large enough to also store a smartphone but in hot weather you should keep your gadgets somewhere shaded away from the panel.
Includes PortaPow fast charge cable which can also charge your android smartphone at high speed from computers and other USB sockets. You can use the USB cable supplied with your device to charge other devices such as Apple iPhones etc.
PortaPow is a UK based company - our goods are not dispatched from abroad so you will receive your order quickly with no extra import tax to pay, and you can contact us and return the panel to us in the UK if there are any issues.
A few devices do not support tricke charging so won't charge when its quite cloudy. iPads may show a 'charger not supported' message or similar for example. Wait for sunnier conditions or use the panel to charge a battery pack which does support trickle charging such as the PortaPow Slim and then use the battery pack to charge your device. Most devices will charge fine directly from the panel however. The panel is not suitable for DVD players or Laptops. It can be used in the rain and the pocket provides protection for the USB sockets and your device, but it is not a substitute for a waterproof case for your device.
