Powersolve continues to add to its power bank and USB charger portfolio with the launch of a new solar charger and power bank that will charge mobile phones, MP3 players, digital cameras and any device that can be charged using a standard 5V 1A USB charger.

Designed using monocrystalline 3.2W solar panels and an integral 5000mAh Lithium Polymer battery, the SOL3W solar charger can be charged by sunlight  (7-10 hours) or USB charger (5 – 6 hours).

“There is a growing demand for power sources that not only extend the talk time of the average smart phone, but also provide a charging capability when away from a mains supply.” Says Peter Clark, Managing Director at Powersolve. “There are many solar chargers available that are simply not capable of providing enough power to charge a smart phone. In fact many do not even meet the maker’s claimed specification. Ours can more than treble the talk time”. adds Clark.

The SOL3W is a “book” style charger which, when closed, measures just 6 x 4in. Powersolve’s design provides intelligent protection circuitry for the battery while LED indicators show when the charger is in use, charging or fully charged.

It comes complete with charging cable and eight connectors for the most popular smart phones and mobile devices.
