5.0 out of 5 stars Works well and prompt delivery, 24 Aug. 2010

This review is from: Freeloader Globetrotter Pro (Electronics)
I took the Freeloader Pro and Supercharger with me on a two week mountaineering trip camping in the Swiss Alps. Following the easy instructions before departure, in direct sunlight in early August, the freeloader pro battery more or less fully charged in about 3 or 4 hours. Overcast conditions or locating the charger in a shaded position did reduce the charging ability, as you would expect with a solar charger!

Over the two weeks the freeloader pro did reliably deliver top up charges to two smart phones as if they were being charged from the mains, the phones were being used for about an hour or two a day. A useful option for future weekends away will be to pre-charge the freeloader pro at home to use it to top up batteries. I've not used the camcaddy so can't comment on its ability to charge other batteries.

From experience and to get the most out of the charger try to prevent batteries (of appliances and the solar charger) from becoming totally flat - charging a little and often seemed to give the best performance. As a general guide a fully charged freeloader pro appears to provide a bit more than a full charge to a smart phone.

A waterproof case would be a useful addition to the package (the case supplied is only moderately shower resistant) so you could leave the charger out on wet or showery days to trickle charge. For transit, as expected, the supercharger does appear to require relatively careful packing in luggage, the main unit appears robust.

Dispatch and delivery was prompt and within advertised timescales.

The freeloader pro and supercharger certainly did the job in keeping mobile phones with moderate use topped up whilst away from mains electricity, and it will certainly be taken with me on my future adventures!

Call me cynical, but I'm always suspicious of reviewers who have left only one, five star review.
It is possible that they are a sockpuppet.
