Product Summary:

The most powerful USB solar charger that you will find in its class
Use the sCharger-5 to charge iPhone(3, 4 and 4S), Android phones and other electronic gadgets including GPSs, eReaders, AA and other USB batteries. It even charges the iPad in good sunny weather. This is the only USB solar charger on the market that can fully charge multiple devices throughout the day. No need to wait on an internal battery to charge. Just plug another device in and start charging. Thats' it!

High Quality and Dependable
The sCharger-5 uses the highest quality parts for ruggeness and long life. The sCharger-5 only uses the highest efficiency, high current, solar cells. These are the same cells used in high output industrial grade solar systems.

Compare
See if any other small solar charger can match the same solar energy output in such a small package. The sCharger-5 sizes its solar cells properly to supply more raw output energy needed to charge directly. Other solar chargers use a small solar panel to trickle charge an internal battery, which takes forever! Their solar panels are too small and weak to charge your device directly. So they charge your device from an internal battery instead. When the internal battery fails(which it inevitably will, since it's being baked in the sun constantly), you have to throw the whole thing away.

Uses
Use the sCharger-5 while camping, picniking, at the beach, by the pool, or even ball games. Use it to solar charge your devices when there is no other power available. Take it hiking with you to quick charge that iPhone that is running GPS. Use it for emergency power. Most of the time cell phones still work when there is no electricity. Be the only one with a fully charged phone!

Brand: Instapark
Product Summary: Tired of all the noise and smell from your diesel generator? The Instapark SP-50W solar panel offers you a quiet, clean while carbon-free alternative. Capable of converting virtually unlimited solar energy into clean, green, most importantly, free electricity, this solar panel is made of high efficiency mono-crystalline solar cells embedded in transparent vinyl acetate behind tempered glass with heavy back sheet ensuring maintenance free performance. Unlike amorphous solar panels, which only last about 5-7 years of continuous use, mono-crystalline solar panels can still retain over 80% of efficiency even after 25 years of continuous use. Also, the mono-crystalline panels are much more efficient and thus smaller in size while producing higher wattage.

This solar panel is designed and engineered to primarily charge 12-Volt batteries, which store and provide usable power when needed, ideal for powering your RVs, ATV, marine boats and electronic equipments. Other than recreational applications, solar power can also help lower your energy bills by reducing your dependence on the main electrical grid and provide back-up power during power outages.
