Product description

<The sCharger-5 is a high end solar charger especially designed to quickly charge iPhones, iPhone 5, Android phones and other electronic gadgets including GoPro cameras, GPSs, eReaders, AA and other USB batteries. It even charges the iPad in good sunny weather. This is the only USB solar charger on the market that can truely fully charge multiple devices throughout the day. No need to wait on an internal battery to charge. Just plug another device in and start charging. Thats' it!

The sCharger-5 uses the highest quality parts for ruggeness and long life. It utilizes the highest efficiency, high current, solar cells. These are the same cells used in high output industrial grade solar systems. The sCharger-5 also uses a rigid durable structure that is built to last as opposed to inexpensive flimsy cloth panels prone to many problems including loss of output power with age.

Use the sCharger-5 while camping, picniking, at the beach, by the pool, or even ball games. Use it to solar charge your devices when there is no other power available. Take it hiking with you to quick charge that device that is running GPS. Use it for emergency power. Most of the time cell phones still work when there is no electricity. Be the only one with a fully charged phone!

Also check out our sCharger-12 for even more power!

I ordered one of these SunTactics sCharger-5 panels having seen it on the US Amazon site. It had great reviews, in particular for the amount of power that it produces and the great customer service that Dean at SunTactics provides.

To be honest, it has been great. The panels definitely output much more than my other solar chargers (Joos Orange included) and I can get some sort of charge indoors through a window in springtime London. As with all other solar panels, the output is massively improved when used outdoors (up to 5W I believe, hence the name). It's also a good move that the sCharger-5 uses a standard USB out to charge - this makes it very versatile with all my usual cables.

The build quality seems pretty good and the mono-crystalline panels are each about the same size as that on my Joos Orange. The sCharger-5 is slim and folds up nicely. The build seems fairly good, though I am a little worried about the hinge which is essentially just a double layer plastic film which folds with the panel connectors in it - it reminds me of a ribbon cable for connecting components in a PC. I don't think it will wear out from use but I don't know how durable it will be to the elements and when the panel is resting at an angle on it on an uneven surface. A bonus for me is that the sCharger-5 is made in the USA and, though I'm not sure there is much difference in the build quality you might have seen had it been manufactured in China, I personally appreciate having an item made in one of the Western markets and supporting business directly over there.

Outdoors in the timid British spring sunshine I've managed to charge an iPhone, a Sony Ericsson Android phone, a Huawei E586 wireless 3G modem from the panels using their respective USB cables.

Simple. Effective. Stays where you aim it. Doubles as a camera tripod if you have an extra gorilla clip.
