Product Description

Tap into the sun's radiance and power up your gadgets with freedom.

Brilliant power supply.

When you're out enjoying the great outdoors, enjoy yet another perk: free limitless power. Spread out the solar panels or attach to your pack to start repowering your gadgets.

Compatibility maximized.

Not all charging ports are created equal. Standard ports only communicate effectively with particular devices, like Apple OR Android, often limiting their recharge rate. But with PowerIQ™ technology, each port intelligently identifies your device to speak its unique charging language. So plug in any brand or model and enjoy compatibility that doesn’t limit your charging speed.

Packin' portability.

Folding down into an easily-stowable paper-sized package, the 1.7lb charger adds minimal weight and size to your pack. Well-placed eyeholes enable easy attachment to your pack, tent or trees.

Rugged quality.

With solar panels faced with industrial-grade PET plastic and bound together with heavy polyester canvas, this solar array sports ultimate weather-resistant durability. High-grade solar panels and premium circuitry ensure lifetime reliability.

For optimal use.

• Please use your device’s original cable or a third-party certified one (such as MFi).
• Compatible with all Apple and Android smartphones, tablets (including the Nexus 7) and other USB-charged devices. The iPod nano, iPod Classic, HP TouchPad, LG G2, Asus tablets and some GPS and Bluetooth devices are not supported.

  • For the little time I've used it it seems to do a good job of prolonging the charge of the device. It doesn't actually charge the device from what I'm doing. I use the device while it's plugged in so I probably don't allow it to charge. I wished it actually stored energy which would make it perfect.

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℉.

Yes they are compatible, since our battery requires a 2A current.

It should be able to charge it. Do you have the solar panel outside in direct sunlight with all the panels in the sun?

yes and the limitation is none 

you can charge whatever battery bank you want but the larger it will take longer

Yes, that will work fine. There is no limitation on capacity but voltage. It can charge most devices that need an input of 5V.

iPhone 6 and iPod Classic

Has anyone resolved their questions about the ability to charge their iPhone 6?

Why doesn't the charger support the iPod classic?

they should support the ipod classic and should charge iphone 6 

They forgot to put it in the list i think

The solar panel should charge an iPhone 6 without problems. The iPod Classic is not compatible with our PowerIQ chipset.

multiple chargers

If more than one charger is bought together can they be connected in line to produce greater gains in solar energy. If so what cables, connectors or splitter would be required to get the best user experience.

One solar panel is already generating enough energy to charge a smart phone or tablet. Transferring more energy into your device might cause damage. Please do not try to connect several panels in line.

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.

No it cant because pro requires 12V but Solar panal only outputs 5V

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.
