Essential Info

As electronics become an important facet in your daily life, you'll begin facing a common problem: keeping devices fully charged so you can keep using them. Thankfully, Aspect Solar figured out a way to ensure you charge and ready your electronic devices with the A1-A625 Sunsocket Sun-Tracking Solar Generator. Essentially, the solar-tracking solar panel charges every kind of device since it features four USB ports, an AC outlet and a 12V DC cigarette outlet that charges your devices quickly and efficiently anywhere you are. At first, you'll probably wonder why the solar panel looks a bit like a Jame's Bond briefcase, but everything you need to harness the sun's energy and connect devices is already built-into the briefcase so you don't need exterior devices. On top of feeling like a gadget saving MI6 agent, the briefcase is relatively light (weighing in at 25 pounds) for easy portability and it uses a lithium ion phosphate battery to extend the life and save weight compared to traditional heavy lead acid batteries. The solar tracking power generator is great for larger more energy draining appliances such as video game consoles, televisions, fans and more without sending environmentally hazardous emissions into the air; or keeping it charged as a backup battery for devices and appliances in emergency situations like electrical blackouts, power outages, and rolling blackouts.

What makes the Sunsocket Sun-Tracking Solar Generator great is that it brings sun-tracking power panel technology traditionally found in large solar power stations and home installations directly to you at an affordable price. When you open the briefcase, slip up the panel, slide out the wings, and press the power switch, the panel will automatically position itself to directly face the sun, as best as possible, and begin storing energy for your plugged-in devices. For maximum charge and efficiency, solar panels should be perpendicular to the sun's rays. The generator also comes with a standard DC charging adapter if you need to pre-charge the generator, but you may not even need this as the battery only discharges between zero and two percent per month when left alone.

    Roland -- Texas   5/19/2014
    For an expensive and presumably cutting edge device such as this I would fully expect to see a True Sine Wave AC output -- not a low-end modified sine wave. If they cut corners by using modified sine wave circuitry, what other design cuts were made? What were the designers thinking?
    David -- Houston   5/19/2014
    I appreciate Smarthome searching out and making interesting products like this one available to us. However, I think it would be better if Smarthome requires that anyone posting a review actually be a real customer. Readers are not interested in the opinions of non-customers. The so-called fundamental error that the above reviews point out is very minor and is easily dealt with by simply plugging in an ipad charger.
    Dave -- Calgary   5/9/2014
    Nice SMARTHOME. I post an interesting observation not negative about the product and even after almost 3 weeks you don't post it. My observation was that this is an interesting product. However if you look as the 4 USB ports you can see that they are only 1.1 A. This is good to charge many USB products but things like iPad and other devices that need 2 A will not charge. This takes you to using a cigarette lighter adapter 2.1 A output of back to the AC adapter. I hope Aspect Solar catches this and make the USB ports more flexible.
    Dave -- Canada   4/29/2014
    If you notice carefully in the video and in the specifications that the USB ports are limited to 1.1 amp. This means that an iPad or any other device requiring 10 watts or up to 2.1 amp will, most likely, NOT charge. The way around this problem is to get a 2.1 amp cigarette lighter adapter or use the AC outlet and plug in adapter to charge those heavier draw devices. Not the best solution considering you have 4 USB outlets sitting right there. I'm surprised that after all the work that Aspect Solar put into this device that they made such a fundamental error.
