Complications with the Solar Charger

June 20, 2008

After traveling with the solar charger for a few days, my husband gave it a ‘good’ rating in durability. Here’s the major catch we have found: our phones are not holding their charges from it, which will destroy the charge memory of the battery. So we think the answer is to be sure you know what volt your phone is, and be sure that the charger will power to at least that level of voltage. For example, if your phone is a 4volt battery, and your charger is only a 3.5volt, you’re not going to get a charge that will keep.

I still think solar device chargers are a good thing, but you’ve got to do some research before you head off to the gadget store and buy the first one you can get your hands on.

Also, the answer to my earlier musing of how to stay organized with the charger and it’s multiple ports: it needs its own case (ours did not come with a case). Any small, zippered bag will work, or if you are desperate, (gasp!) a plastic sandwich bag would work.

The good news is that I have had smashing success in canning pickled beets.
