1.0 out of 5 stars Updated feedback after use at Glasto 2010, 16 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Freeloader Globetrotter Pro (Electronics)
Updated review: 29-06-10
Bought for glasto festival (see below). Despite having three days of constant, blazing sun, the unit failed to get more than a 25% charge which was probably closer to 10%. It just kept my phone going to the end of the festival; but a second phone failed to make it past day three. Under perfect weather conditions, man, many hours of exposure, the travel pro simply failed to charge adequately and thus failed to deliver. Buy a wind up charger instead, they're smaller and more effective. NOT RECOMMENDED!
I'll be emailing freeloader to see if they can see if it's broken.

Ordered this item for Glastonbury festival (2010) as previous years I've run out of power on the mobile phone (and orange charging tent always full).
Summary - pretty good.

Good points:
pretty robust so far (although how long the panel lasts before cracking on camping trips is another matter).
really does have bags of power - charges phone really well (but only when charged from mains first).
loads of connectors in the kit (although no mini-usb for Samsung Jet).

Bad points:
Does not fold - yes it is fabric but the large panel is not hinged so cannot be folded closed to protect panels or for easier storage.
Arrangement of leads is poor - the pouch for the freeloader (smaller fold out charger) means that when using the USB charging lead, the water proofing is compromised. It would have been better to have the charging lead come out at the base of the unit through it's own hole/flap.
MAJOR BAD POINT - FAILS TO CHARGE ITSELF OR ANYTHING ELSE!
