We are very sorry to make this announcement.
As of 03/31/2023, we have decided to discontinue production of our solar charger line.
If you are interested in the story read on.
Back in 2010, I invented a solar charger to charge an iphone since there was no such thing at time. Took about a year in development, made a trial run and offered the first USB solar chargers from a website. Sales took off! Could not keep up with sales. Found a local small "mom and pop" company in San Jose CA to take over and fulfil. Business was great. Unfortunately a few years into into it, there was a death within their company. They went into a struggle to keep making solar chargers for me. I decided to take on the manufacturing myself(bring it in-house). So I leased a facility, hired some employees and things moved on. But the overall costs and overhead was very high. And sales started decreasing because China was taking over the market. But I was determined to keep the business in the USA. And many of our customers only wanted American based products. So I persisted.
Ultimately I lost the war as I could not compete with low cost Chinese solar chargers. Consumers want cheap!
To make things worse. Our "bread and butter" Amazon made changes. We relied heavily on Amazon for orders, but now they impose many restrictions for solar chargers. Amazon continued to remove our listing because they insisted our solar charger includes a battery. A "certification is required" for all solar chargers they say. Why? because your solar charger has a battery. "Our solar chargers do not use batteries" I say. I fought with them for months. They still did not get it. What's really unfair is that many Chinese solar chargers sold on Amazon are not certified according to Amazon requirements.
After crafting high quality solar chargers in the USA for over 10 years, I'm done. China wins.
I have greatly enjoyed conversations with my many customers over the years. I have gained so much knowledge from you. Thank you! I sure hope I have helped you with your adventures and keeping your phones charged!
