Have not uses yet but I charged fully at home with the USB cord it comes with and will come in handy when my phone dies and have no outlet to charge it in. You just plug your phone into the pre-charged device and ready to go. Have no advice if it works as a plain solar charger.
I love the portability!

Excellent on trips, with a great ability to charge all my electronics(a cellular, Ipod nano, etc.) in one charge. Even the solar feature works, in sunny weather.

I love this charger. I use it in the car to keep my phone charged when i have the GPS maps on. only thing is that with charging in solar mode it has to have the full sun light hitting it. it wont work with partial sun light on it, but for the price its works for me
