The Solar Panel Charger is a 8000 mAh capacity battery pack so it can hold enough of a charge to power up most devices... or so I thought. This worked great to charge up my Samsung Galaxy phone and my Bluetooth speaker, but it will not charge up my Kindle Fire. The output is a measly 1.0A and that, in my opinion, is a low charging output. Works well for smaller devices but nowhere good enough for tablets or high powered devices. Not a deal breaker, but it's something to keep in mind.
And lastly, I think that this serves best as an emergency battery pack. I noticed that when I had it out in the sun to charge up, it would take quite awhile for it charge up. I let it sit in the sun for about an hour and only got one additional blue light to come on (about 25% charge). This is a far cry of the efficiency of using the USB cable. I was able to charge it from dead to 100% in a little over an hour. Again, the Solar Panel Charger is great if are going to be outside for long periods of time to allow it to fully charge or for cases of emergencies where the sun in your only source of power. And just to add another safety measure, the Solar Panel Charger also has a built in light. Perfect for finding your way around a campfire at night. Simply press the power button twice to get the light to come on and pressing it a third time will get the light to repeatedly blink. The blinking feature is absolutely perfect if you ended up lost or needed to bring some attention to your location.
