EnerPlex Kickr IV

rated 5 of 5 stars A rugged and very lightweight solar charger that folds up small and doesn't take up much space in my pack. It charges well even if it is overcast, and it will even charge a tablet. It is flexible and extremely durable. It has been a lifesaver on multiple occasions! I had been in the market for a small and portable charging solution for a while before I saw the Kickr IV from EnerPlex. The Kickr IV is a very simple fold-out solar panel wherein lies it beauty. It only has one output which is a 1.2A… Full review

Poweradd Apollo

As a backup battery this is fine. But as a solar charger, it is horribly underpowered, and better options exist. I work in the solar business, and I've seen my fair share of these compact solar chargers come and go. Brunton sells a few for example. The problem they all have is that the solar is always a gimmick-add-on to what is otherwise a useful back-up battery pack. But realize that a backup battery is all these chargers really are.Save your money, and avoid frustration by choosing a more powerful… Full review

Poweradd Apollo

rated 5 of 5 stars This charger is perfect in every way. Based on its capacity, I can get almost 3 full charges out of it. Since it's solar powered, it's always powered up. I don't miss hunting for an outlet at airports whenever I travel. I should have purchased this years ago! Full review

Poweradd Apollo

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A 7200mAh Li-polymer battery with a 5V/180mA solar charger to recharge your devices in the backcountry or during power outages. Easy to use, reasonably sized, reasonably priced, and it gets the job done. As a long-time backpacker, the idea of bringing electronics into the wild is somewhat new to me. I've always had flashlights, of course, and I welcomed the transition to more efficient LED lights once I got used to the blueish glow of the LEDs, and I became an enthusiastic geocacher, too, which… Full review

Brunton Solaris USB

rated 5 of 5 stars Good inexpensive product. Very durable and efficient. I have had quite a few different brands of these panels and these are some of the best for light use. Picks up well in indirect sun and continuous charging with very little. Brunton has never been a popular product where I live and that is where the benefit is reaped. These are much better panels than Goal Zero panels in a comparable size. They can also be picked up for much less money. I bought mine on eBay new out of the package, for a display… Full review

Brunton Restore

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Fair product for getting by. Seems more like a gimmick. This is a good unit if you only need to keep your cell charged or maybe a simple GPS. Doesn't store much power and charges very slowly. Doesn't include any adapters, only a double ended cord with a USB on one end and mini USB on the other. Takes an insane amount of time to charge. Doesn't have an indicator light other than the one that shows how full the battery is. Probably because it wouldn't charge if an indicator light blinked continuously… Full review

Goal Zero Boulder 30M Solar Panel

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for mounting on your vehicle or pup for basecamp. Very good solar panel. I mounted this on top of my pop-up camper. One of these panels in good sunlight will keep my camper battery charged for an entire week using the lights fairly conservatively and running the water pump when needed. They are also chainable. What I mean is you can plug up to four of these together for 120w of power. Also you can purchase a portable stand which will hold four panels and can be placed anywhere on the ground. Full review

Goal Zero Elite Sherpa 50 Adventure Kit

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Super kit, but a bit bulky. I love this thing. It's great and keeps all my goodies charged over a long weekend with plenty of energy to spare. I leave it in my bag and hang the solar panel on top when in transit. It charges more rapidly in direct sun, however I've not had the problem with it only charging in direct light like others stated. It can be charged by either the included solar panel, auto plug, or wall outlet. As before noted, it is a little bulky, but well worth the weight. Full review

Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for hiking. And I use it all the time. This is a great piece of equipment to have if you use a lot of batteries and rechargeable toys. Will also work with any store bought rechargeable batteries. So you are only limited to the amount of energy you can store by how many batteries you choose to carry. The charger itself can also be used to charge devices and other rechargeables via USB. I am very pleased with this product and have also had no issues with it charging in low light conditions. Full review
