Essential Info

If you're looking for an all-purpose portable solar charger for your handheld devices that you can run and charge at the same time then look no further than the powerful Suntactics sCharger-5 USB 5 Watt Solar Charger. This 5 Watt Solar Charger harnesses the energy of the sun and then converts it to usable energy that you can in-turn use to power or recharge handheld devices such as a Smartphone (works with Androids and iPhone's), GPS and even tablets. This rugged charger is both water and weather resistant so it can go where ever you go to provide off the grid power whenever you need it. The solar charger uses high efficiency monocrystalline solar cells which have been successful at providing a charge even in partially cloudy conditions. For optimum performance, however, the solar charger should be used in direct sunlight. Using this solar charger won't slow you down either. It is a hassle-free, plug and play device powerful enough to charge your devices just as quickly as they would if you were using a traditional wall charger (see video below). The solar panel is lightweight and able to fold in half for added convenience making it easy to travel with. The sCharger-5 USB 5 Watt Solar Charger also makes an ideal tool for every emergency preparedness kit to ensure that even if power goes out you'll still have a way to charge necessary electronic devices. Its rigid durable frame is built for ruggedness and a long life unlike similar flimsy cloth panels which are prone to problems.

    I love this charger. I can use it anywhere. I am not very saavy on technical items, but this was so easy even I could use it with no problems. This is the absolute best!!
    =juan quadro -- georgia   1/6/2012
    this item is touted as being able to supply power, NOT BATTERY CHARGING, for items such as portable radios, but comes with ONLY COMPUTER USB TYPE OUTLET AND UNABLE TO OPERATE A PORTABL;E RADIO. aLSO i ORDERED ONE 1 ITEN THE S-CHARGER -5 AND GOT TWO OF THEM, BOTH BILLED. tHE WEB SITE IS OF NO REPEAT NO TECHNICal HELP AS THERE IS NO EASILY DISCERNABLE WAY TO POSE A TECHNICAL QUESRTION. YOU MUST USE THE TOLL FREE NUMBER. SO I WILL GO HOME AND DO SO WITH DIMINISHED EXPECTATIONS OF ANY RESOLUTION OF THE APPARENT INADEQICY OF THIS DOUBLE BILLED/DOUBLED SHIPPED ITEM.
