Solio Classic Solar Charger with LED Lightis rated1.3333out of5by3.
Rated1out of5byfrom5 days to charge = dumbAfter 2 days of 12hrs/day in the summer NJ sun, it was only able to charge <30% of my Samsung smartphone. Pathetic. This charger requires 3-5 days of plentiful summer sun to even reach barely 50% charge of my smartphone. Maybe the intense heat the unit experiences degrades its internal battery's performance. Either way, it doesn't have the power to do the job in a realistic timeframe. Do not recommend at all for anyone without 6-10 days to charge your phone.

Rated1out of5byfromWould not buy this product againI intended to use this product while camping & hunting. I am away from any power source for at least a week. I had placed this in direct sunlight for two days - and it never fully charged. Mostly sunny on the 3rd day, and it would not take a charge. I've attempted to charge my iPhone, and the two days worth got me about 20% battery charge. I'm not sure I will use this ever.

Rated2out of5byfromTrouble with connectionI wanted a small charger for backpacking to charge my Android phone if it needed extra power. I had lots of problems keeping the connection from the battery pack to my phone. Every few minutes I had to look at it and jiggle it to make it connect. It was very, very slow to charge my phone from the battery pack. Most of the night and it did very little. I wanted to like this devise but ended up taking it back.
