I bought this Solar charger for one reason whilst i go fishing for days on end and most of the time i end up fishing were no power source is available to me for charging my Phone, Ipod and any other small things i may take with me, the August SPC1500 Solar Battery Charger is small and compact and weighs a mear nothing compaired to others, there is a mini USB slot on the side for connecting up your USB compatible device ready to charge straight out of the box, two things i really liked about this apart from being able to charge things up the Eco way is that it sports a clever little LED flashlight in the front and it is very bright too but it also houses a small Green LED and as you turn the Solar Charger round it glows brighter the more its in the sun so you basically know the best spot to place the charger to get the most out of it, the Solar Charger comes supplied in a good strong and secure box and comes with all manner of connectors and cables and there is also a How To Guide aswell.
Overall for less than a tenner i am well happy with it and it will be with me whenever i go out of town.
Ace product and brilliant service from Digital Daffodil and Amazon.

Ordered this item on Saturday and was dilivered yesterday (Tuesday)
Charged the charger up initially and took it to work with me to
use on my mobile phone. The phone battery was a bit low so I plugged
it into the solar charger and withing about 30 mins my phone had a
full charge again. The torch is bright and useful, a green light
comes on to tell you the charger battery is fully charged and ready
to use, as it loses some charge just put it in bright light and in
no time the charge is full again. Well worth the money and its
very useful. Various connectors and cables come with it so it works
on a variety of items. Get one if you go out walking or need to
have a charger for several things this will be all you need. Has a
mini usb socket for input and output and cables are usb to mini usb
as well as other types of connectors. Excellent product at a good price

Provided cables aren't that great quality and it misses micro USB.
When its internal battery became low it seemed to discharge one of my usb devices (on 30% to 0%) rather than charge it, which is a pain.

Seems OK at picking up solar charge. LED tells you when its charing from solar, but I think the LED is probably using most of the generated electricity. Going to keep in in the car which should mean its ready for emergencies.

Can charge my HTC desire to full when it's full, but the phone knows its being charged at a slower rate over USB, so I doubt it would be any good for keeping the battery topped up when using it as a GPS (this provides 500ma, GPS uses at least 700ma).

Does not have the correct adapter for PSP (though you could use USB charge on the PSP).

LED Torch is OK for emergencies.

This unit as a built in battery which you charge i.e using solar (sun) take about 6 to 12 hrs or from AC adaptor or form your PV USB port this method takes 2 to4 hrs to charge.

After this is done you have a portable charger for your phone,mp3 player etc ect.

Charged my xda phone in 30 mins.

Basically it's a backup system if you cannot get to a mains outlet

And it does this job well

I'm happy with my purchase.

Bought one of these just before I went on holiday. I deep-cycled it twice before I left to make sure it would hold its charge well.

I mainly charge it through USB and then leave it to keep trickle charging itself in a sunny place.

It allows intensive use of a smartphone (lots of snaps+GPS+occasional phone and text and some surfing) during a day of Disney (while I am sure the phone would have run out of juice without this.). It was small and slender enough to fit in a pocket in my moneybelt and use while queued up.

Both on holiday and on my return I have found this a very practical answer to the old "I need a torch but I use it so rarely that the batteries are often dead when I try to use it" phenomenon. When kept in a sunny place in the corner of a window I can just use it as a torch whenever I need one.

The battery couldnt charge my 14mAh HTC desire more than about 30%.
But its slim, sexy, and the led's burn FOREVER. We are talking 2-3 days. Great as a nightlight!
Solar panel is decent, just the onboard battery thats weak.

This Item is Exellent, Bought 3x Units Last Time, Will Be Buying More Soon, Works Well also With The Freeloader Battery Charger as Well as Leads and Plugs To Fit Most Mobile Phones, You Will Need an Extra Adapter to Charge a Nintendo DS Though, as That Plug is Not Supplied, My Mother Has Brain Training on the DS, So an Extra Plug Needed To be Bought.
I'm a Treker and Long-Distance Walker, This Item is Great for Carging the AA & AAA Batteries with the Freeloader, Recomendee Product for the Out Door Types!
