Summary

Great charging power, robust.

Pros

  • Fast charging
  • Tough

I have the larger 14 model, but it's identical other than size to the sCharger-5.

Charges fast and picks something up even in very low light.

Thanks for the info, Jeff. About how long does it take to charge up a phone or device?

I never really timed or scientifically measured it. I can fill up a half empty phone, portable speaker, mp3 player and a modest power cell all in an afternoon of good sun. I was always surprised by the speed of charge, in good sun, rather than ever wishing it would hurry up. They have a video on youtube measureing their panel as literally twice as powerful of an anker with the exact same specs.
