How to use a portable solar charger
In the warm March, I am fortunate to be invited to attend a large-scale outdoor activities in Australia held in April, when I prepare this outdoor activity gladly and view the web page to consider what portable belonging should be taken with in my journey, incidentally, I found a set of a portable solar charger equipment from website http://www.portable-solar-charger.com, it seems very attractive, and I let myself ordered one from that website, after I received this solar equipment and opened the box, I found that this equipment is consist of many parts, solar panels, exclusive battery, input line, output line, multiple connecting tips, USB multi-purpose battery charger, 4 choice USB Ni-H Battery charger and a user manual.
My first impression of this solar charger equipment is that the design of solar panel is very humanization and comfortable, it is designed with many buttons so that I can carry it with any style I like, either short belt or long belt to suit for my package and taste. By the way, I also listed below advantages to share with you:
Firstly, the cosmetic of solar panel looks very tough, the weight is light with proper size, quite easy to carry, the whole feature without glass or any other fragile crystalline, it is difficult to broken and reliable to be used as a backup charger when we are on business, traveling or field operation.
Secondly, the exclusive battery with high quality finishing, the hand feel is quite well indeed, the black design qualified it as an elegant product and deserve to own one as well.
Thirdly is the multiple connecting tips, the solar charger collocates 6pcs tips to fit for various types of cell phone, NOKIA, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola and others. In fact, if your cell phone connector is same as one of those tips is ok for charge task.
At here, I can give everybody a brief handling instruction for your reference first, maybe you will interest in it.
- The solar panel receives the sunlight to make power directly.
- The solar panel charge for the exclusive battery through input line.
- The exclusive battery charge for the cell phone or other portable equipment through output line.
- Cell phone and other small digital products can put into the pocket which behind the solar panel for charging.
- The solar panel charge for cell phone or other portable equipment directly through output line.
This solar charger equipment collocate the USB multi-purpose battery charger, 4 choice USB Ni-H Battery charger, they can charge for most of the cell phone, digital camera, MP3, MP4, GPS, interphone and outdoor headlamp.
The exclusive battery can charge for the USB multi-purpose battery charger and Ni-H battery charger through output line and it also can be charged by the USB jack of PC.
After I researched a lot from this solar charger equipment, personally, I think this equipment is very suit for outdoor hikers, explorers, climbers, workers, travelers to ensure the communication, emergency power supply and battery maintenance, it can not only easily carry on the back or fix on the package to charge during the travelling process, but also can stand on the ground for elactricize task and it only takes 3-4 hours to full charge a 6600mAh exclusive battery.
From the user manual I learned that the solar panel is prohibit to impacted, bent, squeeze, and scratch. The solar panel surface should keep clean, if any dirt on the solar panel surface will affect the power effect. The exclusive battery should put in the dry and shady place, it is forbidden to disassemble heat up or throw it into the fire. But I think it is very easy to comply, and after own this equipment, I no need to worry when the electric energy exhausted and have no way to contact others when out of doors, because this solar equipment can induct the electric energy of the battery into the cell phone or other communication products to ensure me keep in touch with my friends and relatives any time and anywhere.
This is my own opinion on this equipment, I shared this to everybody to hope you can like it.

The earth’s surface of every square meter received radiation can produce 1700kWh electricity power average annual. International Energy Agency data shows that if 4% of the global desert on solar photovoltaic system installation, it will be sufficient to meet global energy demands.
Solar energy as a kind of sustainable utilization clean energy, there is huge potential application and infinite development space. From the standpoint of modern science and technological development, the development & utilization improvement of solar energy technology may determine the future of mankind’s way of life.
Solar photovoltaic technology development began in the 1950s. With the situation of tightening global energy and environmental protection requirement, it gets a rapid development in recent years. And this technology has been firstly large areas promoted and applied in Germany, Japan and North America.
Under the pull of the international market and domestic policy, China’s photovoltaic industry rise gradually and quickly became a rising star in the international community, China’s solar energy industry chain is forming.
Global solar energy application is growing rapidly. 2007 append capacity 2249MWp (172 billion dollars), up 40.74%. The global market application cumulative volume reaches to 9100MWp. Europe and the United States accounted for 80% of the world ; China 2007 append capacity of 26MWp (2 billion dollars), up 160 percent year-on-year growth.
We believe that the today of European and American market certainly is the tomorrow of domestic market which has been proved in many industries. Domestic facing same globalization of energy shortage, emission reduction, environmental protection, the pressure of energy prices rising which exist violent market impulses and needs.
China is rich in solar energy resources, but the application has just begun. As of 2007 the accumulative total market applications is 100MWp which including 42% rural electrification supported by government, communications and industrial accounted for 30%, solar photovoltaic products (lamps, landscape, traffic signal lights) 22% and 6% for net generation.
As of Jan 1, 2006, the implementation of the “People’s Republic of China Renewable Energy Law”, solar energy is classified as 2010-2020 renewable energy development. The government begins to promote the development of solar energy.
