If the lights flash (THEY WERE), then the charging fuction is no problem. For the solar charging function, we highly recommend you use it as a emergency use when you enjoy outdoor activities, and charge the apollo2 with a USB adapter or computer. The capacity is 10,000mAh, so it may take a while to get a fully charge(depending on the power of the adapter), hope for your kindly understanding.

I thought I would tried again before sending another email, this time to my suprise it worked. I have worked out that my ipad charger should charge it in 4 to 5 hours with some times can be hit n miss. I also worked out that the built in solar panel would take about 70 hours direct sun light to charge fully. A bit disappointed with that as that was one of the reasons I bought this battery pack.
Apart from a few teething problems it works fine. It will fully charge an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 four times (1 blue light left) wilth a possible fifth charge.
I received the first unit and initially charged it up via USB as per the instructions. I then discharged it for a while, but still showing 4 LEDs of power (75%+) I left it in my conservatory to test the solar recharging facility - the reason I'd purchased it. I'd read other reviews stating that a complete solar charge could take a few days, so was patient - bear in mind that I had only discharged the unit by a maximum of 25%.
After over a week, the charger was still showing the charging sequence, but was still not fully charged. Note that I am in the UK, but it is the height of our summer and we have been having sunny weather since I purchased the charger.
I reported the issue to Poweradd, who promptly despatched a replacement. I followed the same preparation sequence and again left the unit in my conservatory to charge. The next day, the charger was totally dead. No charging LED sequence, would not charge up via USB and would not charge a device.
I still wanted to believe in the device and although Poweradd said they had never sent someone a third unit, they sent me one. Exactly the same thing happened as the second unit, but this time it took two days before it totally died.
I wrote to Poweradd expressing my disappointment and asking if they would like me to return the dead chargers to them for analysis so they could try to identify the cause of the faults, but all they replied was that "We recommend that you do not use our solar indoors under direct sunlight to charge".Read more ›
Fully charged by USB before going and it kept 2 phones and 2 ecig charged for the duration of a 4 day festival finally running out of juice on the way home.
Solar panel is a nice addition, While it will take over a week to charge the battery fully even in ideal curcumstances, I just clipped it to my belt as i went around and let it top up, probably buying me around a quarter of the battery over the 4 days. (and making new curious friends)
It now lives permenantly on my bag keeping my gadgets topped up as i travel.
If you top it up fully from the mains it will charge an iPhone 5S four times, a GoPro four+ times or a Sony RX-100 3-4 times. Used it with 3rd party mini cables for my gadgets while away hiking in NZ. Never let me down and always had charge left even after 3 days without any other source of power.
