    This product is the perfect lite weight charger for taking out into secluded areas and keeping your phone GPS and camera charged with out adding any noticeable weight or taking up to much room in your hiking backpack

    In 2012 this is perhaps sufficient, but most any modern electronic device now has much bigger battery than this rendering it irrelevant.
    The solar panel is small and thus ineffective for charging the internal battery. It takes about 3 days of Las Vegas sun to provide a 20% charge on my old phone (Google Galaxy Nexus).

    Fully charged, this charger adequately charges my phone, wi-fi hotspot, or phone battery pack very well. It is best if you turn off whatever you need to charge. I wanted a different model with twice the solar panel area, but those were sold out quickly. As long as you find an open area to charge by the sun, you'll be satisfied; but it will take 3-4 hours of sunlight for a full re-charge. When charging this pack by USB, car charger or electricity, 1.5 -2 hours will fully re-charge.

    I bought this for those times when I am not around power, but can use the sun, there is a lot of it here in Arizona. I tested it out and although it doesnt charge my galaxy III all the way it give enough charge for the phone to keep working. I will be excited to see how it does camping.

    I've used it to power GoPro camera, Garmin GPS, and smartphone. The main cord works for the first two. The included adapter works for the phone. Unfortunately there is no place to store the adapter when not in use. I've resorted to rubber bands to strap it around the back.

    Worked well during elk hunting. I used it for charging a cell phone and a handheld radio. The only draw back was it didnt charge everything all the way. It did however give those two electronics enough power to last a fair amount of time.

    Puts out 1.0A, which isn't enough for an iPad or similar tablet. The solar panel will only charge in direct full sun outside. If you put it on the dash, it won't charge even in full sun. So much for charging securely during the day.
