This solar charged battery pack is the size of a cell phone but packs a 0.6W solar cell, charging circuit, boost converter and 3500mAh of Lithium Polymer storage. Simply leave the battery pack with the solar panel facing up and when you need power, press the power button and dial over to the voltage you need. The unit has 9V/1A output as well as 5V output at either 1 or 2 Amps. We enjoy this product, and the young lady in the datasheet seems to thoroughly enjoy it!
A standard USB-A type connector makes it easy to plug this thing into your favorite device and mini-B port can be used to charge the pack when you don’t have access to (or patience for) solar power.
Note: Due to shipping restrictions, only two batteries can be shipped together at one time. We should be able to ship more than two batteries at a time by the end of 2014.
Note: Although the datasheet shows an assortment of nice proprietary cell phone connectors for you to throw away, we’ve saved you the trouble by ordering these units without the connector pack. You’ll only receive the unit itself. You probably have a USB cable laying around somewhere, don’t you? If not, check the related products below.
Note: The solar panel is undersized for these packs, and makes charging them a slow process. It is useful as a last resort only. However, there are still some good parts in them.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.
