Worth the money
Pros: Standard usb output, flashlight has come in handy, has no problem giving me that extra juice on a sunny day after a hard day of iPhone use
Cons: only will charge to 50% on solar, has little to no chance of charging on overcast days unlike some with a larger solar surface
Other Thoughts: this is not my only solar battery/charger, the flashlight is something you don't normally expect on one but this does make it one of top choices to use.

Good option for the money
Pros: Works on iPhone 4 and other USB chargeable devices without need for special cables or tips. Inexpensive and has battery level indicator.
Cons: Only chrges internal batteries to 50% capacity on solar alone. Need to plug into A/C to get internal batteries up to 100%. However, in a pinch 50% charge has always been enough for emergency needs. I have charged mine up to 100% on A/C and let it sit for a month, still shows 100% charge holding on internal batteries!
Other Thoughts: Good solar emergency charger option for the money IMO. Universal standard USB connector means no special cables needed in a pinch or extra parts to lose!

weak for charging a kindle
Pros: * easy to use
Cons: * can only charge to 50% using solar source
Other Thoughts: I purchased the revive for charging my kindle on a trip where I may have no access to electricity. Field testing it before my journey indicates that the device on full solar charge (50% capacity) only charges my kindle for a measly 15 minutes. I estimate around six full solar charges to charge a kindle from completely empty to completely full. Since the revive takes about six hours to charge to 50% on sunlight (its max capacity from a solar charge) that would take 36 hours of sunlight to get the kindle charged to full. Obviously that's not really acceptable. The claim of the device is that it's able to charge a kindle. While technically true, I find it misleading.
