sCharger-5 USB Solar Charger, 5 Watt Portable Solar Charger for iPhone, iPad, GoPro and more
This not an ordinary small solar charger. These use high efficiency mono crystalline solar cells like the ones used in industrial grade solar systems. The sCharger-5 output power is over 5 Watts. See if any other small solar charger can match that power in such a small package!
The sCharger-5 is a Powerful 5 Watt Compact Solar Charger that can both charge and actually run at the same time iPod, iPhone, HTC / Droid, Nooks and Kindles, Game devices or any other portable device. Use it to charge the GoPro extreme sports camera. It can even solar charge an iPad on bright sunny days.
Most other solar chargers use low power solar cells that produce a tiny amount of power. They use the small solar panel to trickle charge an internal battery, which takes forever! The small solar panel on them is not enough to charge your device directly. They essentially charge your USB device from their internal battery. When the internal battery fails(which it inevitably will, since it's being baked in the sun constantly), you have to throw the whole thing away. The sCharger-5 will not only charge your device, it will run it directly from the sun.
Don't be fooled by the 6 to 7 watt 12 volt solar chargers out there. They are not optimally setup to do USB charging. They require a DC converter to convert 12 volts to 5 volts that USB devices require. This comes out to less power and your device will have a hard time charging.
This solar charger works extremely well on the latest iPhone 5.
The sCharger-5 can charge a dead iPhone and most other smart phones in sometimes as little as 2 hours using only the sun. There is no internal battery to wear out and create toxic waste. Sturdy and reliable, built to last for many years. Lightweight folding design. Standard "A" type USB port. Fits into a purse, backpack or zip-up cd wallet. It will also charge AA/AAA batteries with a suitable USB charger available on the market. And if you really need that backup battery for your phone, there are affordable USB batteries all over the place that can be charged from the sCharger-5 as well.
