5.0 out of 5 stars Poweradd Solar Charger - Great for camping and Caravanning, 10 Mar 2014
This review is from: Poweradd™ Apollo2 Solar Panel Charger 10000mAh Dual-Port Portable Charger Backup External Battery Power Pack for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4, iPads, iPods(Apple Adapters not Included), Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, S3, S2, Note 3, Note 2, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, Most Kinds of Android Smart Phones and Tablets, Gopro Camera and More Other Devices - Black (Electronics)
I was dying to try this one out with it being solar powered. Have lots of power cuts so if this could save the day (from having son moaning that he can not use his Nexus) well worth trying it out.

We tend to leave it in his bedroom window to charge, even though not brightly sunny but still in February and making sure this device is positioned where the sun streams mostly it does work. Hardly takes up any room and is black with orangey colouring and the only bit that lights up is the four little blue lights (and they are tiny). So doubt that anyone would get disturbed by them flickering when charging. It does come with everything that is needed to charge your devices, no extra bits or adapters needed (apart from the sun) which is good, so once bought no other add ons needed, but it does seem expensive at just under forty pounds.

But the big but here is the instructions, not that clear (broken English) being the problem. The blue lights flash to show it is charging, then they seem to stop, start then all over again, but all this in a matter of a few minutes. At least son has now learned a lot more about solar power and if things charge or not. Plus no more moans when the power cuts happen (farmers and hedge cutting) as this does charge, alright slightly longer to charge some devices like my iPad but still it works.

This is one of those gadgets that if gong camping, caravan or such would be the ideal thing to take with you, then at least any kids can charge their devices and you will never get stuck with a flat phone like I tended to do.

Glad to have been sent this item for reviewing as I know one twelve year old son that thinks it just great for him to use either with his phone or Nexus.

Delivery was very quick on this and packing well done
