Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by RosemaryH Useless I wanted something I could use when I don't have access to electricity. It won't charge in the sunlight (and I have plenty of that living in Africa!). Even when I charge by USB it will only charge my phone once. 21 September 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by Solarkid Never charges by solar only by charging manually I bought this thinking great idea never run out of charge again how wrong was I. It looks a nice light product in diffrent colours but that's where it stops I bought a purple one found like most no instructions charged my phone that day next day it stopped and wouldn't charge so took it back and exchanged it for another purple one after using that it stopped working again now it only work if I charge it by mains My overall impression is they waste of money and don't solar charge I'm not very happy with product as no instructions and no solar charging which it states it does. 05 August 2016Rated 2 out of 5 by Magpieally 1st impressions As have said no manual so this is what I've worked out. Green light = solar panel exchanging. Blue lights = USB plugged in item charging. Blue lights flashing = powerbank needs recharging/running low 2 quick presses on switch = torch on/off Long press on switch = SOS light flash (as stated on other review) Feels really good and seems like it will be robust. Charged my Sony Expedia z5 from 50% to 75% really quickly. Can't say much more than this as only bought it today and done this review to help manly with the instructions as Googled with no luck. Don't now how long it will take to recharge by USB or solar itself. 26 July 2016Rated 2 out of 5 by walkingman Looks the part BUT.... I bought this purely as a solar powerpack for attaching to my backpack and charge when walking. But so far have not acheived this. As the other reviews, where are the user instructions, what do the LEDs mean? My main gripe is with the single carbiner attachment the panel swings about, after miles of walking you find the panel has swung round and is facing the wrong way. It needs 2 attachment clips to hold it flat. 27 June 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by Samsunguser No instructions Thought this would be handy for the car and when we're out and about. I haven't had it long but I don't know how it works because there are no instructions with it. I have tried to charge it using the solar panel but I don't know if this has been successful? There is a button on the front and lights flash but I don't know what this means. It charged up my Samsung s5 quickly first time. I suppose I should plug it in to charge it up again? I'm doubtful if the solar panel actually works? - I only looked on this site hoping to find some explanation! 26 June 2016Rated 2 out of 5 by Blades27 Solar panel doesn't work! This is a reasonable slimline power bank that once charged from the mains will give you a couple of full charges. However, the claim that the solar panel will recharge the pack is completely false! After a weekend away camping and 2 days with the solar panel placed in direct sunlight, the pack remains discharged. 26 June 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by CharlieP Looks good but lacks documentation This device seems very clever on the face of it, but there is no instruction manual and the features are not exactly intuitive. It appears to act like a standard power bank in that it can be charged from a charger (not included) via a micro USB socket, and it has two USB output sockets to allow simultaneous charging of two devices. It also has a solar collector, so it would be reasonable to assume that it self-charges in daylight; but there is no information on the back regarding re-charging rates, and no manual either. It has a series of LEDs: one green and several blue. However it's not clear what these do. It has an 'on' button. It's not clear what this does. It appears that a short press of the button causes the LEDs to light up. A longer press causes another, white, LED to flash in what looks to be morse code: S O S O S O S O S, etc. It's not clear obvious whether the button has any other functions. IF this had a manual, the overall, quality and value ratings in this review would be considerably higher! 21 June 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by zogzilla Solar charging doesn't really work This unit charges ok via USB and will then recharge my Samsung Galaxy S5 a couple of times. However, even outside in full sun there is virtually no charging effect from the solar cells. Two days in full sun wouldn't even move the charge indicator by a full bar. Additionally, there are no instructions whatsoever and it is hard to know what the sing;e switch does. Sometimes it has no effect, sometimes it makes a white LED flash and sometimes it shows the charge level. It seems completely random. 02 June 20161-8 of 8
