Holy crap, this thing works!
November 9, 2014
I don't know why I feel so surprised by this, but I really was. It seems to violate the universal truth that "you can't get something for nothing". True, I did have to pay to buy this unit, but there is something approaching magic to just put this thing in the sunlight and get freshly charged batteries out of it after a few hours!
This is now a part of my emergency preparedness supplies. Besides recharging AA/AAAs, it has a USB power output that can charge lots of devices. This little device has really opened my eyes to the entire solar powered world, and I'm starting my research into a full blown solar generating emergency power system. I think you'll appreciate this little unit. It gives you a great option for keeping your devices going when the grid drops out.
