sCharger-5 is a Powerful 5 Watt Compact Solar Charger

Pin It Fancy

The sCharger-5 is a Powerful 5 Watt Compact Solar Charger that can both charge and actually run at the same time iPod, iPhone, HTC / Droid, Nooks and Kindles, Game devices or any other portable device. It can even solar charge an iPad on bright sunny days.

 " This solar charger works extremely well on the latest iPhone 4S "

Example solar charging applications:

  • Outdoor events, Camping, Boating, Fishing, Picnics, Ball games
  • Use it to reliably solar charge your device when there is no power available
  • Take it hiking with you to charge that GPS device
  • Emergency power and disaster power relief. Most of the time cell phones still work when the grid is down
  • Lose your wall charger? Why not start charging from solar?

sCharger-5 USB Solar Charger Description

This not an ordinary small solar charger. These use high efficiency mono crystalline solar cells like the ones used in industrial grade solar systems. The sCharger-5 output power is over 5 watts. See if any other small solar charger can match that power in such a small package!

Most other solar chargers use low power solar cells that produce a tiny amount of power. They use the small solar panel to trickle charge an internal battery, which takes forever!  The small solar panel on them is not enough to charge your device directly. They essentially charge your USB device from their internal battery. 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.  The sCharger-5 will not only charge your device, it will run it directly from the sun. 

Don't be fooled by the 6 to 7 watt 12 volt solar chargers out there. They are not optimally setup to do USB charging. They require a DC converter to convert 12 volts to 5 volts that USB devices require. This comes out to less power and your smart phone or GPS device will have a hard time charging.

The sCharger-5 can charge a dead iPhone and most other smart phones in sometimes as little as 2 hours using only the sun. There is no internal battery to wear out and create toxic waste. Sturdy and reliable, built to last for many years. Lightweight folding design. Standard "A" type USB port. Fits into a purse, backpack or zip-up cd wallet. It will also charge AA/AAA batteries with a suitable USB charger available on the market.

" Beware, many small solar chargers on the market won't charge iPhones."

Here's what makes our solar chargers different from the rest:

  • Talk & Surf while charging from solar energy, Hassle free

  • Charges most all devices as quickly as a wall charger does

  • Runs dead devices while charging at the same time from just the sun

  • No internal battery to wait on or wear out and cause toxic waste

  • Unique, optimized circuitry also makes it simple to use

  • Reliable and Durable, Water and Weather resistant

  • Meets Today's and Future needs for more powerful devices

  • Sleek Compact Folding design and Light Weight

  • Dependable for emergency preparedness and natural disasters

  • Patent pending


"Recognized as one of the 10 Best Eco-Inventions of 2010 by The Green Market"

"Just came back from a week and a half camping trip where we took the sCharger-5. What a great gadget. It regularly charged charged 1 iphone, 2 kindles and 1 regular cell phone. The charge times were very reasonable (similar to plugging into a wall charger). Everyone in our group thought it was great." David, CA

"There is a hurricane heading for NY. and this is perfect for those situations. we may loose power here so this is a huge plus. of course i HAVE to charge it before the sun goes down because i wont be able to have sun exposure when the hurricane happens. this device is great for any hurricane/earthquake. this is one of the devices you should have in case of an emergency. a little expensive, but worth it in the long run. i mainly got it for emergencies, but would be great for camping and all those out door activities." Emmanuel, NY

"I highly recommend this device. The solar panels themselves are excellent, which is really the whole point, right? I have a lot of experience dealing with solar charging because of having a house that is completely solar powered." Seth, Chelmsford, MA

"This charger solves the problem of small solar. It provides more power than any other solar chargers I have seen. It is a very well made unit, not cheaply made at all. I no longer lose my phone charge on long camping trips." Robert, Berkeley CA

"It is the only way I charge my Ipod now. I bought a CD case and take this solar charger with me where ever I go. It is high powered and charges at the same rate as plugging into a wall socket. If a shadow or interruption stops the charge, it resets itself without having to unplug and replug it. Like I said -FANTASTIC!" Mike, San Jose, CA

"I used the PC5 on that and a subsequent trip covering almost all of October and November - It worked flawlessly. It actually seems to charge my Droid X at about the same rate as my AC charger, and my ipod faster than the battery operated speaker I use at home). It works great for charging my kindle too. I just open the sCharger-5 up, set it in the sun and connect whatever I need to charge." Daz, Arizona

"It will play music right away when connected to a dead Ipod.  It charges an Ipod in about two hours and is quite a powerful little panel.  I have used it outside my tent and the waterproof characteristic is a good thing as it slowly melts into the snow.  I simply dry it off and put it away."  Philip, A Traveler
