Product Description

The sCharger-5 USB Solar Charger Out Performs all the others for its Size and Weight.  Save time researching and just get the best solar charger in existence. It will save you time and money in the long run.

Charge Anything With a USB Connection

The sCharger-5 works with all Apple iPhone models, Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets, iPad (1, 2, 3, 4, mini, and Air), iPod, HTC One, Droid, Android, Blackberry, eReaders, GoPro, Canon, Nikon, USB batteries (Anker), AA/AAA battery chargers, Bluetooth speakers, GPS devices, basically anything with a male USB connection.

Independent tests have proven that the sCharger-5 is faster and more powerful than anything in it’s class for size and weight. In full direct sunlight the sCharger-5 is able to charge an iPhone in 2 hours or less from 0% to 100% (the same amount of time it takes to fully charge an iPhone from a wall outlet).


A solar charger can be used when there is no other power available.  You can take on all your outdoor activities and be assured that your devices will stay charged.  Use it while camping, hiking, boating or kayaking, outdoor events, bike touring,  and a must have for emergency and disaster situations. Put it in your survival gear or bug out bag.  There are many applications where a solar charger such as the sCharger-5 can be of use.

Efficient High Quality Solar Cells

What makes the sCharger-5 so powerful is its premium-grade mono-crystalline solar cells, we use the most efficient solar cells in the industry. Other USB solar chargers 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 cable 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. Have the security knowing that the sCharger-5 is going to work in any situation, while hiking, camping, at the park, at the beach, ballgames, festivals, events, or in case of 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!

Yup. no need for me to duplicate the specifics, just to add to the chorus: THIS is the solar charger on the market that actually works, and works well. I backpacked several months with the sCharger summer/fall 2013 and basked in its durability, reliability, and ease-of-use. [charging iphone 5, and USB Steripen]

I can also speak to the comparison between this product and SolarMonkey Adventurer, which can be simply stated as “no comparison.”

The sCharger is the solar charger that does what it says it will do, while the SolarMonkey Adventurer is a pretender (a few highlights: SolarMonkey charged slowly and was easily stalled under normal conditions, working as advertised only briefly, under absurdly perfect conditions; the internal battery did not hold a charge well, with much of the “stored” charge lost in just hours; the solar panels began peeling up within days.)

I returned the SolarMonkey and bought sCharger with a USB battery—it was immediately apparent that this is a far more flexible and useful arrangement AND (I emphasize again) the sCharger performance completely outclassed the “other.” Hooray for sCharger, hooray for honest good products, and hooray for those who bring them to us. Thank you!

[Kudos, too, for stellar customer support, as many have mentioned.]

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).
