The Solar AA/AAA Battery Charger and Tester by XTG Technology is the ideal all-in-one charger. This charger can charge AA or AAA batteries using the provided USB cable or sun power via the solar panels. The USB output port can also charge cell phones, mp3 players, and other USB powered devices using the power from the AA or AAA batteries and your device's existing USB charge cable. The XTG-SLRBC also features a AA/AAA battery tester that tells you if your primary or rechargeable AA/AAA battery is dead, weak, or good. Whether your camping, traveling, or just need that extra boost of power, the XTG Solar Battery Charger is the solution.

2 out of 5 eggsCharge batteries yes, use as a power supply no

Pros: - Compact size given that it holds four AAs and solar panels
- Foldout solar panel protects the solar cells when not in use
- Built-in battery tester
- Charges AA and AAA batteries

Cons: - AA batteries are difficult to remove with my fingers
- The USB mini-B charging cable means that for most users you will need to have with you both a mini-B cable (for recharging the gadget) and a micro-B cable (for recharging your device). Other similar devices I've used use micro-B for their own charger.
- No indication of when charging is completed
- Using the device as a power source for phones apparently does not work (at least on the unit I received). I do not know whether this is because the unit provides only 350 mA of power to the USB port or if the unit I have is simply defective, but it would not set any phone I attached into "charge mode" (other products I own that are similar to this one do work with those phones).

Other Thoughts: The device seems to charge batteries effectively (charged some empty NiMH batteries overnight and they do now have power), but it is useless as a power supply for devices.
