This page is a place for me to send friends and family to when they ask things like "what's new?" and "what have you been up to?" - it's a way for me to avoid telling the same stories over and over again without remembering what I've already told them before. I recently enabled the ability to post comments so go for it!
This item goes by two different names. I have tried both of them (because the store doesn't accept returns; they only do exchanges). Both of them worked exactly the same.
1) Takes way too long to charge. The pamphlet inside says that it takes 15-20 hours of sunlight to charge. Most of us don't get 20 hours of sunlight. It can be charged in about three hours by USB, but the point of this is that it is supposed to be solar powered.
2) The power output is barely a trickle. It doesn't work at all on my tablet. On my Android phone a full charge of this device lasts about 40 minutes and only gives me about 12-17%. After charging it in the sun for 20 hours.
There are many other external USB batteries that cost less money than this and have better power output and better charging capacity.
