    Just interesting that no one has referenced my post in this thread (seeing as this one is more active).

    I have a Solio solar charger. It works fine if you plug it into the wall, but a total POS when you leave it to solar charge. Takes forever on a sunny day, doesn't charge for $hit on a cloudy day. You wind up carrying around an extra cable to charge a solar powered device. Oh, and using your window to charge on a plane? The Solio is designed to stick on a window. You know what they call people who stick electronic devices on a window at 30k feet? Terrorists

    Yeah good way to attract attention of Marshals. I just bought a second battery from Verizon...works good for me.

    Not all users visit all threads. Since your post was in a different thread, there is should be no expectation on your part that anyone in this thread would have seen it.

    Your insistence on drawing attention to YOUR post puts me in mind of a kindergarten child with socialization difficulties.

    It's ME! It's all about ME!

    I looked at that charger 2 or 3 days ago. I don't remember who posted the link that I found. Here is my opinion of it, without actually having the opportunity to try it. It has about 1/2 the charge capacity of the Zagg charger and currently costs $14 more. In the northeast US where I live a solar charger is relatively useless. I'm sure that all want to consider any product that someone suggests, but the Amzer is not necessarily the best option just because you post it. Now continue to post when you find something useful, but don't get all huffy just because we don't all get excited about what you think is the best.

    I agree with this. "MrBaz" is not coming across very well on this thread.

    Great minds are often misunderstood.

    I found an external battery that seems to be better than all others on the market, can be charged by your car, standard wall socket, AND it has the capability to be charged by the sun. It also gets better reviews that the other external batteries on the market.
    So what if it has less capacity than the Zagg charger? It is smaller so it is easier to carrier around (flying comes to mind) and at least it actually works. And really, you're going to argue over $14 comparing something that is known to work and something that doesn't have a good track record? What more do you want?

    This is an excellent find for those that might like camping/hiking or live where hurricanes frequent. I remember not having power for a while after hurricanse Katrina came through. We were fortunate enough to have a generator I could plug my cell phone into.
    Something like this would be an excellent investment.

    On a more serious note, I received and charged my Sparq a few days ago and just used it to charge my Droid. The Sparq charged to 100% and it charged my Droid fine. The Droid battery was at 60% and it charged it to 100%. I'll try it again sometime when the Droid battery is at 20% or 30% and then when the Sparq battery is at 25% report back if there is a problem.

    I've been using mine for a couple weeks now, it's been working good. I find that it charges a lot faster than the OEM charger as well as the 1000mah charger I got from monoprice
