Handy little gadget Verified Purchase
I bought it this to keep my phone/tablet charged up whilst out and about (especially when at the beach). So far I've only had it a week or so but it's doing the job. SolarCentre were great in their customer service, as the colour I'd ordered was out of stock but a reply to their email and the item was despatched that day. :)

Fantastic Solar charger, great battery capacity and you can even charge your phone direct from the sun using the slave if the battery has run out. Truly an emergency charger that you can rely on.
