  • I purchased this to keep my I phone 5 charged while camping as I use my phone for GPS and camera. I also purchased the Anker 2nd Gen Astro E5 portable charger external battery power bank. I found the panel worked extremely well charging my iPhone as well as the battery pack. It's small, lightweight and rugged - just what I was looking for.

  • I've only used the charger a few times, but it appears to work just as advertised. I have used it to charge two devices at once, and in full sun, my Samsung Galaxy S4 charged just as fast as it does when plugged into a wall outlet. The construction is sturdy, and I was able to use the charger without complaint during a week-long camping trip at the beach, which included two severe thunderstorms and constant exposure to sand.

  • Great in all weather, unless you have an iPhone
  • It worked above expectations, yeah, it didn't charge like an outlet unless it was sunny, but people, realize it's a solar charger. And the fact it worked at all during overcast weather was amazing. Disclaimer, if you plan on charging an iPhone, this probably isn't for you

  • I love Anker equipment and have never been unhappy with their products. The Solar Charger is no different; it is well made and exactly what I have come to expect from them. Have barely had any time to play with it, so hopefully more later about extended use.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  Which charging port should I use to charge my device?
Thanks to PowerIQ™ technology, each charging port can charge any device at full speed up to 2 Amps — the sun’s radiance is the only limiting factor.
Q2.  What kind of USB charging cables should I use with this charger?
To ensure complete safety and best performance, we strongly recommend using your device's original cable or a third-party certified cables (such as MFI).
Q3.  What if my device needs an input current of 1A, will the 2A output damage it?
The solar charger's maximum output current is 2A but it will never exceed the maximum current output that your device is designed for.
Q4.  What if the Anker 14W Foldable Dual-Port Solar Charger is not charging my device(s)?
A. Check to ensure that your device’s input current and voltage requirements fall within the accepted range.
B. Cloudy weather and indirect sunlight may cause fluctuations in the current output that prevent your devices from charging. In this event, try placing the solar charger in more direct sunlight or wait for the weather to clear.
Q5.  How do I check my devices input current and voltage?
Please refer to your device’s user manual, original OEM charging adapter, or contact the manufacturer to determine this information.
Q6.  If it is partially cloudy or not very sunny, can I still charge my devices with this charger?
Yes, but the charging output may be lower prolonged charging time. If the solar panel has its light suddenly limited (by a passing cloud for example) you may need to unplug and then replug your device to begin charging again.
Q7.  Can you use this charger to charge Anker external batteries?
It is compatible with external batteries that need a 5V input. However, the amperage output of the solar panel is not consistent throughout the day and it varies in season. We suggest using the solar panel to charge big external batteries when the sunshine is strong (the optimum time is 11.00-14.00 in summer), as the density of sunshine affects the output of the solar panel. Please also put the Anker external battery in the pocket of the solar charger to avoid direct sunlight or exposure or excessive heat which may damage the battery.
Q8.  Why it is advertised as 14W while its max output is 5V/2A?
The 14 watt mono-crystalline solar array is 15-18% efficient and can provide up to 5V / 2A total output shared between the two USB-charging ports.
Q9.  Is it waterproof?
No. Please minimize exposure to water to protect the charger's electrical components.
Q10.  What is the operating/storage temperature for this solar charger?
The ideal operating cell temperature is 77℉, the operating temperature ranges from -4℉~140℉.

Questions  relate  to  Anker 14W Dual-Port  Solar Charger .


Do this ever going to need  charged  using a household electricity supply/outlet ?


If yes , can it be recharged on both 110- 120V/60hz                AND                  220-240V/50hz  outlets , when there is little or no sunlight ?

These  are two different questions . Please answer each question separately . Thanks .

10400 mAh

Hello, i bought this Anker 14w charger to charge my 10400 mAh battery, the pannel is in direct sun, correctly angled (June in Spain so very sunny) and after 6 hours i only have the first light lit on my battey (which is hidden and protected from the sun).

I am using the USB that was provided with the pannel.

So is this normal? 6 hours for a quater charge? Is this pannel capeble of charging a 10400 mAh Battery?

Thank you.

So sorry to hear about that!

Please confirm your battery's maximum input and try charging it with another charger. Also try charging it via another cable when connected to our solar charger and confirm whether the solar charger can charge other devices, e.g. your phone.

If the charger fails to charge other devices, it can be related to the charger. Please contact our customer service team in that case and they will help you out quickly:

It will not charge my phone, as if the light dips for any reason, i get a "not supported by this device" and no further charging will happen.

After the whole day, the 10400 mAh battery charged to 50%, I was hoping for more.

Can you charge your phone 100% using solar panel?

if you can I think there could be problem with the battery bank

Does it auto-restart?

Hello... does the 14W panel automatically restart charing an i-device if clouds temporarily interupt the sunlight?

Replies(4) Collapse Report as spam Jun 4, 2015 at 7:57 AM

No, neither my iPhone (3GS), iPad (3) or my partners iPhone (6+) will contunue to charge after being interupted bu sunlight, they all say "charging not supported with this device".

No buttons. When sunlight is available and it has something to charge, it'll start passing electrons.

Sunlight is the button

Yes, it will continue charging as soon as the sun is back.

Problem of charging the mini ipad3


I have a mini iPad 3 (A1600) and I cannot to charge it by the anker 14Watt

The miniipad doesn't permit to charge because doesn't recognize the  anker 14 Watt as suitable disposable



Replies(3) Collapse Report as spam Jun 1, 2015 at 6:05 PM

Are you using it in full sunlight?  If there isn't full on strong sunlight then the charger is not going to be charging at its full potential, which may end up causing an issue with the iPad because there is not enough power available to charge. I have also noticed from my solar charger that putting it at a direct angle to the incoming sunlight so the sun is making more of a direct hit on the panels helps with reaching the full charging potential

Reply Report as spam Jun 1, 2015 at 7:04 PM

there should be no problem while charging in sunny day 

and if you are using anker lightning cable there should be no problem 

Reply Report as spam Jun 1, 2015 at 9:44 PM
Sorry to hear that you are having trouble using the solar panel. Please make sure to use a certified cable for charging and try another one just to be safe. If it still doesn't work in direct sunlight, please contact our customer service team at

Charging XP-10 Micro-Start battery

I just purchased a battery (Micro-Start XP-10) that I would like to be able to charge with a solar panel vs. an electrical outlet.  The information I obtained said that it charges at 14 volts and 1.0 Amps.  If I want to attach the solar panel to the transformer provided with the unit the specs are 100-240 volts and 50/60 hertz.  I know nothing about solar panels, can you recommend which unit I need?  I prefer portable and like the idea of being able to fold it up for compactness.

Replies(1) Collapse Report as spam May 28, 2015 at 3:16 PM

i see that micro start XP-10 is jump starter/ power supply like our Anker Astro Pro 2

Solar power only outputs 5V 2.Amp

compatible (TBD) rechargable battery

Hi there,

Need help to decide which Anker external battery will suit my needs. I want to recharge this battery with the Anker® 14W Solar Panel Foldable.

I will be biking and canoeing at least 10hr a day, under expected sunny conditions. I'm expecting to lay the foldable solar pannel on the roof of my byke trailer or in the cannoe, and charge the battery during the day.

My current needs are: nexus 7, nikon lithium battery but extra capacity does not hurt.

Besides the battery, what other accesories should I be buying as well?

hi. i do not own one of the solar energy pannels but i can tell you it wont be a good thing to mix with the water, but i believe that you would do just fine it has 2 usb connections but i suggest you buy a power pack. now i have the 25600 mah e7 also from anker it has enough juice to recharge my ipad mini 2 (6471mah) and my note 4 (3200mah) about 2 to 4 times and gives me enough juice for heavy usage and get me thru 2 days of complete charge. but they also have different mah options from 20800, 16000, 10000, and other smaller battery options. but i suggest you buy the pannels and a power pack for an emergency. now if you buy the power pack make sure you charge it completely one or 2 days before you leave on your trip. good luck.

Would the LB1 High Performance External Battery Power Bank  1000mAh be compatable with the 14w foldable solar charger.

TRIXES 12000mAh External Battery


I'm very interested interested in the 14w foldable solar charger.

I'll be travelling in Africa and will need to charge an ipod classic and and canon powershot, which has rechargeable Li-ion Battery NB-6LH.

I understand that that your devices are not directly compatable with the ipod classic, will the TRIXES 12000mAh External Portable Battery Charger Power Bank your solar charger.

If not can anyone recommend a suitable battery that could work for me.

Thanks Christian

It should charger iPod classic. And also the power bank 

But I recommend for you to get the anker 2nd gen astro pro 

I have Nikon with ep-5a power supply connector 

With a right plug I use the astro to power my camera

Reply Report as spam May 12, 2015 at 8:00 AM
Sorry to tell you that our PowerIQ technology is not able to charge iPod Classic. As the input of the Trixes external battery is 5V, it will be compatible with our solar charger. However, we only recommend to charge capacities of up to 10.000mAh via solar power.
