I had the misfortune to purchase this product after reading the reviews on this site. In hindsight I can only speculate as to whether the authors are members of the extended family of the board..... To call this product a rip-off is an insult to velcro. If you should happen to share my misfortune, try ringing the company up. I hope you manage to speak to the individual who dealt with me, a comic genius who will have you in stitches with such classics as....'You didn't put it on the window-ledge did you? That's the worst thing you can do'....or...'Well of course, if you connected it to the mains adapter that renders it dysfunctional'...(or my personal favourite).....'Don't pay any attention to what it says on the box, that's meaningless'. These people should not be manufacturing electronics. I think they are more suited to sailing a gun-boat around the coast of Somalia! This product is a £14 un-exciting paper-weight. If you actually expect it to function as a solar-powered accessory you might as well stick it where the sun don't shine. I am in the process of referring these people to the trading standards, having returned the product to the company on 30th May and not even had the courtesy of an acknowledgement. Their recorded phone message states they are in the process of changing premises. I think this is code for stuffing their hookey gear in a suitcase and legging it down a back entry.
