5.0 out of 5 stars Too good to be true! 6 July 2012
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:1100|Verified Purchase
First of all i will open by complementing the service and delivery from powerbee, after sending an email asking if it could be delivered before a certain date since i needed it for a trip i received a polite and helpful reply saying that they will do their best, the solar charger arrived the next day.
The charger is brilliant, I bought it to go to a 5 day festival and it was my best friend, i would leave it on the dashboard of our car all day and when i would come back it would have enough juice to charge my phone for around 2-3 hours, more than enough to fill my phone to a stable level. It is built brilliantly, it is very light and compact yet very strong, it comes with its own pouch (which is also brilliantly made) which made storage and carrying even easier. It also came with all the bits and pieces and cables i think you would ever need. Since the festival (about a month ago) i have used it on several occasions, hikes, biking trips, fishing trips and even just going to school, since i can also use it to charge my music player. It is an extremely handy device and i have nothing but good things to say about it, I would suggest it to anyone and already have suggested it to friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent little bit of kit 12 Sep 2011
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:1100|Verified Purchase
I bought this charger to keep my iPhone 4 up and running whilst at a festival recently and I can't recommend it highly enough.
I charged it via USB before I left home and - in conjunction with the Sun (which was rare for the festival I go to!) - my phone remained at around 74% charge over the four and a half days I was away.
The charger comes in a neat little pouch which is capable of holding the charger and all of the attachments and cables it is supplied with. All together, it is a very lightweight and compact package.

There are two LED's indicating when the charger is being charged by the Sun and when it is charging your chosen device. The intensity of the LED reflects how bright the Sun is and consequently, how much power it is absorbing.

It is recommended not to get the device wet so I sealed the PowerBee in a clear plastic bag and left it outside the tent to catch the Sun and it worked fine.

All in all, and excellent bit of kit and ideal for people who need to maintain their electronic devices whilst travelling but don't always have access to mains electricity.

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID,!!! 22 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:1100|Verified Purchase
CRAP ....CRAP....CRAP....BINNED IT! Don't waste your money! Threw it in the bin. Even after 12 hours in bright sun it never charged, nor did it charge from an adapter, apart from the very first time. Lousy piece of kit! Couldn't post without giving it one star!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, highly recommended 18 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:1100
Since purchasing this item a few months age I have used it numerous times whilst camping to charge a variety of my electrical appliances. I remain impressed at the fact that it can charge my iPad from flat battery to full in just 2 hours. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who cannot live without there electrical equipment whilst camping or travelling for prolonged periods of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little gadget 19 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:1100|Verified Purchase
This is a little gem of a solar charger is much better than I expected. Being a geek and outdoor person I both like my gadgets and the fresh air. So being able to take a fully charged battery pack to boost my samsung phone is great, I have found the best way to keep it charged is too either leave it in direct sunlight in my car or a sunny window. It has definitely saved my phone going flat on a few outdoor excursions now :-)

I would definitely recommend this solar pack over many others I have tried.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected 18 Jun 2014
By Gez
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:1100|Verified Purchase
I bought this product after I lost my previous Powerbee solar charger (Executive Solar charger). It is smaller and lighter and cheaper than my previous one, and therefore much nicer to slip into a handbag. It has a less powerful battery, but I only really want it to get me through if my phone battery fails. If you want more power, pay a bit more and get the Executive model.
The Compact can completely charge my Samsung phone or partly charge my Samsung tablet. Lack of sunshine is not an issue, as you can charge it via USB. Very handy when I go into London for the day, when my phone sometimes gets low towards the end of the day. A good value product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buying a solar device on Amazon - not sure 28 Aug 2013
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:1100|Verified Purchase
Purchased this product for a trip in Africa. Should have checked whether the Elite Solar worked before traveling out.

The Instructions on how to charge the device for the first time is not clear and when I have tried all options to charge the Elite I discovered that the device was faulty.

On my return to the UK I was not able to get a replacement from seller on Amazon.
