1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing indeed, 29 May 2011
I purchased a Solar Gorilla through Amazon, noting the manufacturer's claim that `the technically advanced solid panels ensure superb power and reliable performance...... the ultimate renewable powerstation for your notebook...Unlimited power under the sun...'. I used it to try and charge my small Samsung NC10 netbook in what I imagined to be pretty well ideal conditions (dry season in Africa, with strong sunlight and clear blue skies nearly every day for a month), but am extremely disappointed by its performance, and would not recommend it to any prospective purchaser. Even in these tropical conditions, it took several hours' recharge to replenish the most basic computer usage (e.g. one hour's simple word processing).

There are several alternatives available which, in my experience, are both much cheaper and more dependable, ranging from chargers that fit into the cigarette lighter in the car (which cost almost nothing) to small and inexpensive petrol generators (not very 'green' but they do the job).

I was equally unhappy with the response from the Power Traveller Company to my complaint about the poor performance of the panel. Happily, Amazon agreed to refund my costs without hesitation, and I have now returned it, and been fully reimbursed (for the Amazon-related costs).

[I have also, incidentally, been in correspondence with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, whose publicity is prominent on the sales material for the panel and hypes up its environmental credentials, with regard to its claim (on the back of the instructions leaflet) that Gorillas are found in Guinea (Conakry); they agree that they have confused Guinea with Equatorial Guinea, a country 1,000 miles to the east, and say they will advise Power Traveller to change the publicity.]
