Excellent Solar Panel!
This review is from: Sunforce 22010 Foldable 12 Watt Solar Charger
Pros: I use this foldable solar panel for extended backpacking trips out in the middle of nowhere. It charges my cell phone, GPS, MP3 player, Sony PSP or Nintendo DS, pretty much anything that can you can charge via your cars cigarette lighter socket. When I connect this panel directly to my voltage meter I get 14.8 to 15.3 volts and 866 to 933mA which means this panel performs well over spec. I also use this panel to charge up my Tekkeon MP3450 battery pack with the solar booster adapter, this way I have backup power when the sun is down. I was so impressed with this panel that I bought another one and now have them both connected parallel which gives me the same voltage but I'm now pushing 1.8 amps. I also like the fact that this panel folds up nicely and is made out of weather resistant material and it comes with its own case and different sets of SAE type plugs and alligator clamps.
Cons: None so far...
Other Thoughts: This solar panel makes for a great emergency power kit and will trickle charge a 12-volt battery safely when directly connected (no charge controller needed for this panel).
