  • Features – Multi-device charger, works with 3200+ devices.
  • Stores Power – Holds a charge up to one year so it’s ready anytime, day or night.
  • Hybrid Versatility – Charge it from the sun, via USB port or from an optional wall charger.
  • Intelligent Charging – No overcharging, just right.
