This is a fantastic portable solar charging device for anyone traveling around, especially if you need to travel light. You don't need to carry batteries, chargers or other heavy paraphernalia - one for each of your gadgets. All you need with the stylish white Pico solar charger is the device itself, daylight to charge it and the supplied connection tips to link up your gadgets.

Solar power

The Pico solar charger uses a lithium ion battery and solar cell technology to convert daylight into energy and power gadgets like iPods, mobile phones and GSM devices. The lithium ion battery has an 800mA capacity and is environmentally friendly unlike regular batteries. Given the small size of the Pico, the solar cells generate an amazing 75mA to charge the battery.

Charging your Pico solar charger

The first time you charge your Pico solar charger you should use the USB cord supplied to connect the solar panel to your computer - it takes three to four hours to charge it this way (an initial charge via USB conditions the battery). After the first charge you should regularly use daylight to charge the Pico solar charge - it reaches full charge after ten hours of daylight, although you can still also use the USB cable when you need to.

Charging devices using your Pico solar charger

Once your Pico solar charger is fully charged it takes only half an hour to deliver its power to your external device. The Pico solar charger comes with four connector tips:
  • Mini USB for Motorola, Blackberry, smart phones, PDAs and GPS devices (inc. Garmin)
  • Samsung G series phones
  • Nokia (small tip)
  • Sony Ericsson (all current generation)
The Pico solar charger is capable of storing sufficient charge to get the following output:
  • iPod: 14 hours
  • Mobile phone: 35 hours
  • GPS: 1.5 hours
  • MP3: 2.25 hours
