Just in time for our lake vacation 1byOne sent over a 24w Solar Charger for me to try out and review. The solar charger can charge up to two devices simulatneously.
When asked if I wanted to review the solar charger I was pretty excited. This environmentally friendly way to charge your phone or tablet. There is a nice little pocket you can slide your device into so it is not sitting in direct sunlight while it is charging. You won’t want to use this device if it is raining or misting out as it could potentially damage the charger as well as your phone or tablet.
When you’re out at the lake you may be using your phone or other device to take pictures or listening to music. Or if you happen to have a Go Pro but no extra charger the 1byOne Solar Charger is an excellent backup plan. You have to be extra careful out on the lake with all of the water but having this charger was a great alternative.
Another good idea I had for the solar charger is to keep it in the car incase my wife or I ever had an accident or got stranded somewhere and needed to charge our phones. It is recommened to use the cable included with your phone instead of a third party cable. The instructions say the charge time will be faster, but I really did not notice a difference using an Apple cable or an Amazon cable.
There are many good uses for the solar charger and is definitely clever concept by 1byOne. I am excited about using it more and more in the future as I think solar technology is such a cool piece of technology to learn and play with. I can already picture some of the ideas that me and my kids may be able to come up with using the 1byOne Solar Charger.
Some additional information about the solar charger are that it includes a high efficiency solar cell, around 22-23.5%. There is built-in intelligent idetification IC to recognize Samsung and Apple devices to provide fast charging. I mentioned the dual USB connections. Max 3.3A in total. Over current, over voltage and short circuit protection. Best of all it’s light weight and ultra thin, so it is easy to store in a backpack or bag.
