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℉.

Which Anker external battery

I saw in another post that Anker did not recommend charging an Anker 2nd Gen Astro E5 16000mAh External Battery (I own one) with the 14w solar charger because of the batteries large capacity.  That being the case, which model of Anker External Battery would you recommend to charge with the 14w solar charger that gives me maximum capacity and how long do you anticipate it will take to charge this battery?

I will be on a 16 day raft trip, charging a go pro and camera.  I'd like to charge the Anker battery via 14w solar, then when needed charge the camera and go pro from the Anker battery.

We recommend using a battery with no more than 10.000mAh. Like this you have a great balance between weight, capacity and charging time.

As @Gabrielkbkim said, the Astro Pro2 requires a higher voltage, thus it would not work.

I don't see why you couldn't if you attached a USB to DC cable that has a built-in "step-up" feature. These cables effectively raise the voltage from 5V to 12V. Consequently though, you would lower the amperage or current of electrons and would cause a greater recharge time.

Make sure your cable works by using wall charger

Make sure the panal is in full sun condition if it does not charge contact support@ianker.com

can it be rained on

Since this is solar if your camping can this be rained on. I realize you can submerge it but if it rains while charging will it be damaged? I understand that the USB ports will not handle filling with water but hanging it with the rings is what I am thinking so USB is protected.

"this accessory may not be supported"

14w Solar Panel charger advertising clearly states compatible with iPhone - when attached - begins to charge, but stops within seconds - stops charging and the message "this accessory may not be supported".  Have tried work-arounds at  http://ios8release.com/this-accessory-may-not-be-supported-error-fix/

.... but no joy.  Hope you can help, otherwise I will have to return product, as no use to me as is...   Cheers!

Quote From ANKER Team:  I'm not techie, but it seems to me that the Apple operating system on all iPhones protects the phone from fluctuations in current  - so when attached to the solar panel, and a cloud passes over the sun, you get that annoying message and it won't charge again however sunny it is later on that day/whatever cable you use.  I suspect fluctuations in current are not good for my phone - so maybe just as well it does this.  My work around was to buy your E5 battery, use that to charge my iPhone (works super-duper), and use the solar panel to charge the E5.  I tested this yesterday in part shade, but the E5 didn't charge much (if at all), and all four lights were flashing on the E5 - which was not explained in the manual/Welcome Guide.  But I get this now - really bright sunshine this morning - using the solar panel to charge - three lights steady, fourth one flashing to indicate final 25% of battery is charging.  But when a cloud passes over the sun, all four lights flash - which I assume means that it's not bright enough to charge.  When the sun comes out again it charges normally.  Fab.  Solar panel may not be compatible with normal UK weather, but it does work on the rare occasions that we have sunshine!  Just have to hope for some really sunny days when we go camping soon. Anker Team, please confirm (or not) my interpretation of LED lights all flashing.  Would have saved some bother if this were included in the E5 manual/Welcome Guide - a little note on page 6 would be helpful for techno-phobes like me.  :-)

How come this is a 14w panel but it only puts out a max of 10w?

The output is stated as 5V @ 2 amps. Watts = Volts * amps - > 10 Watts = 5 Volts * 2 amps. Not sure what is referred to as this "4W operational loss." Perhaps the solar panels USB ports use a steady stream of power?

Yes and depends on the Sun Light

Thanks for taking an interest in this charger! The 14W panel outputs 10W max. as there is 4W operational loss. The mono-crystalline used is 15-18% efficient.

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: support@ianker.com

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

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

Andrew - same here - once sunshine interrupted, iPhones won't charge - just get that annoying message.  Someone called Steve W said somewhere that his iPhone charges fine from an external battery - so I'm going to give that a try - and use the solar charger to top up the battery, rather than directly to the phone.  More expense, but don't mind as long as it works!  I'll report back...

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