Product Description

portable solar panels

The sCharger-5 Portable Solar Charger provides electrical power on the go. Have the freedom to charge your devices without being tied down by power cords.

Charge Anything With a USB Connection

The sCharger-5 works for the latest Apple iPhone (3, 4, and 5), iPod Touch, iPad, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets, Android devices, Blackberry, GoPro, Canon, Nikon, USB storage batteries (Anker), AA/AAA USB battery chargers, Sony PSP, Nintendo DS, basically anything with a male USB connection. (Attention Samsung tablet users, grab this Samsung dongle for even more power!)

Proven to Charge Faster Than Others

Independent tests have proven that the sCharger-5 is faster and more powerful than the Goal Zero Nomad 7. In full direct sunlight the sCharger-5 is able to charge an iPhone in 2 hours or less (the same amount of time it takes to fully charge an iPhone from an electrical outlet) from 0% to 100%.

Efficient High Quality Solar Cells

What makes the sCharger-5 so powerful is its mono-crystalline solar cells, the most efficient solar cell technology of the 21st century. Other solar chargers are made of cheap plastic and use weak, low current solar cells. Our solar cells produce high current output which means less time it will take to power your rechargeable devices.

The sCharger-5 only relies on the sun and a USB connection to recharge your devices, that’s it!

Built in Auto-Retry Technology

The sCharger-5 has something that the leading competition does not have; “Auto-Retry Technology”. The sCharger-5 will immediately re-start charging within minutes after being temporarily blocked from the sun, other portable USB solar chargers require a manual reset in order to start charging again. With the sCharger-5, you will never have to worry if your device is charging properly.

Durable and Built to Last

The sCharger-5 is built to last, great for camping and hiking, or just daily use. Have the security knowing that the sCharger-5 is going to work in any situation, especially in an emergency. The sCharger-5 is built to sustain critical damage, dropped in water and will still work as intended (just dry off before use). We believe in our American made products, and we know for a fact that you will be completely satisfied with the sCharger-5 or your money back, guaranteed!

takes 6-8 hours to charge a Nexus 7 tablet, but only 2 hours for a kindle even in light clouds.
My Nexus lost power when used during charging.
I drilled my own grommet holes to attach it to the top of my pack.

Last summer I thru-hiked the 500 mile Colorado Trail and I used the S-Charger 5 to charge my camera batteries. I think it has a great weight to power output ratio. I don't think you'll find a better value than this charger.

sCharger-5 USB Solar Charger
This little solar-panel charges hand-held electronic devices and phones (Samsung s4) directly from the sun. You don't need optional battery packs or the array of cables like the Goal Zero Nomad 7. sCharger-5 only needs 3 things to charge electronics, a panel, USB cable, sun and you’re done.

The panels’ best trick--every time a shadow passes over the unit, it resets automatically, so charging continues—no need to keep checking the phone when charging. Unattended charging means you save money, eliminating the need to buy expensive battery packs as a work around, but it charges USB style power packs too, if that's you're thing.
My only criticism—the lack of fixing points to attach the panel. Certainly not a deal breaker, but does limit performance when you’re on the move—biking or hiking and so on.

For emergency power-outs or outdoorsy activities you can be confident this unit won't let you down. Highly recommended.
Overall 4.5 Stars (loose half star--for lack of attachment points).

Suntactics is the most wonderful company to deal with. The products are top notch, and somehow their customer service before AND after the sale is even better! This is so extremely rare these days, even more rare than a quality product. Thank you Suntactics for going so far above and beyond to resolve an issue that turned out to not even be your fault!
