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.

  • No joke, this thing works and works well!
  • I hesitated for months to pull the trigger on the Anker 14W Solar Charger and I'm not sure why now. I just received it and laid it out on my south-facing deck in a full-sun day in SC (in late March), and it charged my Moto X phone from 61% to 100% and my Kindle Fire HD6 from 79% to 100% in about an hour. I was blown away. I guess if you're in a south-facing extremely bright situation, this thing is really putting out close to the advertised 2 AMPS. (I did use the much thicker USB power cord that came with my Kindle.)I purchased this because I'm planning a month long canoe expedition and I was concerned about charging my phone, camera batteries and headlamp batteries. I plan on using this in connection with the Anker 13000 mAMP USB battery pack I purchased (by the way, another awesome Anker product). After seeing what this solar charger is capable of, I'm no longer concerned about sustainable energy.Way to go Anker! Highly recommend!!

  • It did a great job of keeping my cell phone charged at a week long craft fair where no electricity was available. I charged a battery pack during the day, then recharged the phone from the battery pack at night. 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℉.

Long-term durability

How long can I expect this product to output an optimal charge? How will output efficiency be in, say, 10 years, compared to when the product is new? From what I've heard, solar panels' output power will diminish as years pass. It would be good to know this before considering a purchase. I don't expect it to last that long, I'm just curious as to what will happen over time.

We can all agree that it's hard to predict how any power device will perform 10 years from now. You can definitely expect some loss of efficiency. Think back 10 years ago, the smartphone hadn't even been invented yet (debatable, but the first iPhone came out in 2007 and it was the first of what we could consider a "modern" smartphone). So 10 years from now who knows what devices will exist. Fortunately (we hope) the sun will still be around and it's why I have a lot invested in utilizing solar power.

We wouldn't expect a significant loss in in efficiency over time but we wouldn't be able to vouch for performance after 10 years!

what if i buy the Astro E6 and plug it to the 14W Portable Foldable Outdoor Solar Charger?

14W to E6 to charge is okay 

E6 to Note 4 is okay 

But not E6 to 14W panel

That would work absolutely fine.

You can also charge your Note straight from the solar panel!

There is no battery, it is just a charger. You need something else if you want it charge without the sun.

A few variables here, but 1 - 3 hrs depending on sun is probably a pretty good guess.

I am planning to go on holiday to pakistan in June where the sun is shinning for 13 hours and the heat is 31°C and electricity is very limited how good will the product work and which is the best external battery to use?

it will work very well. this solar charger will work with ANY Anker battery except for the Astro Pro2 line. I would consider the E5, the E6 or the E7. Any of them will work for days for you.

All our products will work in that temperature range so you'll need to decide which battery is best for your needs!

How long will it take to fully charge the solar charger? Or does it not hold charge only transfer it from the solar charger to your device?

It won't hold charge, but you can buy a battery to use with it, and hold charge in that.

2 panels in Parallel

If i wanted to double the out put capacity (ma) can I use two 5v panels in Parallel? 

Would I need to insert diodes to seperate each panel?

No, you can't really set these up in parallel.

If you need a higher output we have the 14W solar charger that might provide enough power for your needs.

The G2 has difficulty with a lot of external batteries and 3rd party chargers.

Our batteries are compatible with almost all other smart devices, tablets, phones, GPSs, MP3 Players etc.

Charge Astro Pro?

Is there any way to use this solar panel to charge the Astro Pro 1st generation (20,000 mAhr)? I understand it would be a very, very slow charge time. I just want to know if it is possible at all, as the Anker Pro 1st generation is the only battery capable of 19v charging.

No. It needs a larger power source that is plugged into a 110/220 outlet. You can look at the E6 or E7, that's a bit larger even than the Astro Pro, but will take USB charging.

Reply Report as spam Feb 6, 2015 at 4:10 PM
ANKER Team
No, this is not possible.

The Astro Pro needs an input of 15V/1.3A and the solar panel can output 5V/2A.
