1.0 out of 5 stars Won't even work at the equator!, 16 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PowerBee Executive Solar Phone Charger for iPhone 2G 3G 3Gs 4, and nearly all handhelds in the UK including Samsung Galaxy s, HTC desire, Ipods, PSP's, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, Tom Tom, mp3 players, and many more.. (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this as we were going on a family trip to Uganda. I knew that the place we were going to stay relied on solar energy. Not wanting to strain their resources further I thought i could use this to keep my iphone charged. We only took one phone with us and it had very little use - less than 1 text per day and only 1 short call in 4 weeks. I charged the product from my computer before we left the UK and it worked fine at first. By the 2nd week it was only showing 1 blue LED after lying in full ugandan sunshine from 7am through to 7pm. By the 3rd week it was barely registering 1 LED after 2 full days in the sun. We were staying less than 40 miles from the equator. I contacted the seller on my return and he was very polite but the only advice he offered was to carry out the same actions that I had already tried. My point is that if the product fails to work in equatorial regions then it ain't going to be much good in sunny scotland. I am unhappy as a friend bought a similar (but cheaper) product and hers worked fine!
