Charging on the go
on 5 October 2014
A solar pack to charge devices in the moment as it has no onboard storage, you'll also need a fairly sunny day to get the best use from it as charging slows significantly when the sun goes in. A USB charger is neatly tucked away in an integral pocket although you'll need to supply all leads to connect to your devices.
I managed to fully charge an iPhone in around 5 hours from almost flat, so it isn't the fastest charger around even in bright sunshine; it may also not charge all of your devices as sadly my iPad was not compatible (message on screen stated 'charging not supported by this device' and, even though I hopefully left it plugged in 'just in case', no charge was applied).
The construction of the solar panel is not fantastic; the stitching is a bit wonky and the plastic film protecting the solar cells was, in my case, badly torn and completely covered in bubbles. Aesthetically it didn't look very good and I was instructed the film could be removed without affecting performance of the panels, which improved the looks but presumably also then leaves the panels more susceptible to damage in use.
Provided without charge for review purposes, this will have a place at festivals, whilst camping or hiking for emergency charging of devices although without any onboard storage I'd be reluctant to have to rely solely on this given the vagaries of the British weather.
