The gadget itself is light and kind of frail so don't chuck it about, and needs to be kept in a pouch to save scratching the panel and to keep the adaptors together. Charges off a USB point in a couple of hours and then will provide about a half charge to a phone or MP3 player. Left in the January sun/daylight for 5 hours it charged fractionally, enough to give my phone an emergency boost. Not sure how long it will take to fully charge in Summer sun/daylight or abroad. I find it handy as my Sony MP3 player will only charge off a USB point so I can top it up with the Pico if I'm out and about. But only once before having to find a USB point to recharge the Pico or wait a few days with it lying in the Sun ( Whatever that is) Probably take 5 years given the Sun we've had the last few Summers. Anyway, for the money, a handy source of emergency power when Outdoors, camping , hiking and stuff so long as you leave it outside all the time and look after it. It won't like rattling around in the bottom of your backpack.
