I bought this product to keep my iPhone charged on a recent camping trip. The solar panel did charge up the phone, but it required a couple hours in direct sunlight. I've tested the battery pack also as a charger for the phone. I haven't tested charging times, but when the nearly run down phone was plugged into the battery pack in the evening, it was fully charged the next morning. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the kit. It is a great way for campers, travelers, and backpackers to keep their cell phones, etc charged up when away from home.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
