Description FAQs
Take the Amp solar battery charger with you wherever you go. It's small enough to fit in most any bag and will recharge just about any phone, GPS, mp3 player or handheld game. You can also use it to charge many digital cameras. (Some will require optional cradle designed by Voltaic Systems specifically for digital cameras. Contact us if you need help figuring it out.) When unfolded, the two small solar panels combine to create a four (4) watts solar charger that can be used wherever there's sunlight.

What makes this better for the environment?
Every little bit helps! Our small electrical loads can stack up to be big loads when combined. Removing those loads from the grid will make a difference over time. But that's not all... it's also about building awareness. Solar battery chargers are extremely convenient to those of us who spend many hours outside of an office, in the outdoors or often don't have access to a standard outlet for recharging. The more often we all use solar power products in our daily lives, the more others will adopt the same habits. The more people using solar, the more research will go into to innovating and producing even better solar power products.

Works well June 21, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Washington, DC  
I use this charger when I'm outside all day at the kids' soccer games or I'm working out of the office.  It's already saved the day twice and I've only had it for a couple of weeks!
