Product Description

12w Pocket Solar Charger for Ipad, Iphone, Ipod, Android, Droid, Samsung, HTC, and many other USB chargable electronic devices.

The “Pocket Panel” is a 12 Watt Portable Solar USB Charging Panel designed to Rapid Charge power hungry cell phones and other USB devices that can be charged via their USB port. This panel is rated to produce up to 2 Amps of power @ 5v via the standard USB charging output port and this allows rapid solar phone recharging in bright sunny conditions and this also allows quicker recharging in partly sunny conditions.

Today’s new smart phones, iPhone, Android, Droid smart cell phones demand larger batteries and much more power per day compared to phones from just a year ago and this means it takes a lot more power to rapidly recharge your new smart phone. If you want to solar charge your cell phone or iPhone then you need a portable solar charger that is capable of producing enough power to rapidly recharge your phone in good sunny conditions and this is where most solar cellphone chargers fail and fall short since they are under sized and simply do not produce enough power to quickly recharge your USB devices.

The panel we have made here is using the highest efficiency solar cells on the market, the same type Mono Crystalline solar cells that are used in the popular glass solar panels you see on the top of large buildings and homes all over the world. The solar cells are 17-18% efficient at turning sunlight into electricity vs. the other folding solar panels that use ThinFilm solar cells that are only 8-9% efficient at turning sunlight into electricity. The higher the efficiency of the solar cell the less surface area it takes to generate 1w of power. Since we are using 17-18% efficient solar cells our portable solar usb cell phone chargers are as small as you can currently make them without using super expensive NASA grade 22% efficient solar cells.

This is the most powerful pocket size solar USB charger on the market and its priced below all the other less powerful options currently available world wide. Forget the rest buy the best!

How to choose the best portable battery charger for smartphone

Load capacity

The millimeter-hour (mAh) battery specification indicates the maximum amount of power your loads can receive. In this way, the higher these values, the greater the capacity of their loads. So the first thing to keep in mind before buying a portable battery is to see if the total values ??of your charge exceed the capacity indicated on the phone’s battery.

Battery power

It is important to choose a portable battery that has a power output power, indicated by the values ??specified in Watts (W), equal to or greater than the charging power of your smartphone.

If the electric current coming out of the portable battery is less than that needed to charge the gadget, the device will not charge. However, the higher the value of this current, the faster the battery can be recharged.

The service life

Remembering the power loss of the external battery when transferring your mAh amounts to smartphones, it is important that your users also evaluate their charge cycle. Also known as a useful life, this cycle can be calculated by comparing the mAh values ??of your portable battery capacity with the mAh indication on the device’s battery specifications.

Tips for increasing the battery life of your phone

  • Decrease screen brightness: The brightness of the screen is often responsible for more than half the power used in your phone. Phones with large screens like the Motorola Milestone have the screen as one of the major consumer villains. A very bright screen is only useful when using the phone in the sun outside. As such times are often rare, leave the screen brightness to a minimum.
  • Disable Bluetooh : Bluetooth is little used on devices compared to other wireless options. When you need to use Bluetooh, turn it on only on time and then hang up.
  • Turn off the keypad sounds: that noise when you press each key, if off, can contribute to your battery to last a few more minutes at the end of the day.

Turn off the wi-fi where there are no known networks: turn off the wi-fi. Otherwise the device will be running out of battery power by listing all the networks found wherever you are. This is even worse if I have been in transit, because as the signal from the networks becomes very variable, the phone ends up having to use more power to transmit the radio signals.

Turn off Wi-Fi where networks exist: If you need the phone to work longer before you can recharge it, you may want to leave the Wi-Fi (wireless network) turned off even at work or in places where there is a network without wire you can use. With Wi-Fi on, several programs are constantly exchanging information with the internet, which increases the consumption of the device.

  • Turn off automatic syncing: If you even need your phone on the internet, at least close non-essential programs. Programs and e-mail, Twitter and others constantly synchronize information with their servers. That eats a lot of drums!
  • Lock the screen or keyboard: especially when placing the device in a pocket or purse, lock the keyboard and the screen. If this is not done, the unit may be running out of power while the display is switched on and not in low power mode.
  • Use a darker theme: yes … this is a bit of paranoia, but in the Nokia N97 a white theme spent around 10% more battery than a black theme. I measured, believe me. In devices with LED screens and derivatives this difference is even greater. Use dark themes and fine print to “light” the smallest possible number of pixels on the screen. The battery lasts much longer.
