Lets face it, being in the outdoors is safer if you are connected. Connected with your cell phone, your GPS, or any other device that allows you to update people on your location and how you are progressing.
The difficult part of staying connected is your ability to stay charged. At best, you need to charge a device every 2 days, and most typically you need to charge daily. The Secur sp-600- 12 watt solar charger allows you to do that very thing.
I have been using the solar charger for about 3 months now, and have charged my devices, most often a droid phone and a iphone, at least 50 times each.
I put the panel in the sun when I leave for an outing during the day, and then at night it is good to charge 1-3 devices during the evening and night. I have noticed that I can easily charge 2 devices at a time and have them fully charged for the next morning. I have also noticed that I can have enough charge left in the included battery to charge 2-3 more devices the following day.
This solar panel and battery seems to allow for at least 4 devices to be fully charged after a day in the sun.
The Secur Solar chargers has a nice pocket for housing your phone. This pocket will keep your phone protected from the elements if you need to charge it outdoors or in bad weather. I was a little worried by the size of this compartment, but my very large Nexus 6 droid phone fit in it perfectly when I removed the case to the phone.
I have been thrilled with the Secur solar charger! I love that it has an onboard built in battery pack and 2 usb ports. It just works and works well. The case is outstanding, the solar panels are tough, and it is very well designed.
If you are looking for a great way to stay charged in the outdoors, this is it!
What they could do better?
Make the water proof pocket just a little larger.
