Green Mobile Solar Chargers




{Live @ CEL Manila} Green Mobile is a new company offering a number of mobile solar chargers and solar-powered backpacks — really useful for traveling gadget geeks.

The pocket-sized solar chargers come in 3 models with battery capacities from 1,000 to 1,200mAh.

Each one comes with a Lithium-Ion battery so you can charge them under the sun as a stand-alone device and hook them up to your mobile phone later. They also come with a USB cable so you can also charge the device thru a USB power outlet or a laptop (for faster charging).

Charging time to mobile phones take about 1 to 2 hours and can recharge a single phone battery up to two times in a single full charge. Price ranges from Php2,245 to Php2,548 but they have discounts at CEL of up to 30%.

The solar-powered bag (Green Mobile explorer) doesn’t have any Li-Ion battery with it so charging has to be done actively (while exposed under the sun). Price tag is Php1,700.

  2. jazzy says:

    yes, I aggree but it will be much better if they have a solar laptop charger and a battery than can power the laptop at least 5hrs. then i will be the first one to buy. Are there also some solar chargers that will under light bulbs are flourescent lamps or as long as there is light not just sunlight?

  3. Patrick says:

    @jazzy: I agree. After reading the first few lines, I was hoping it would say that it also charges laptops. :D

  4. yuga says:

    @Pat – max voltage of this one is 3.7V. They actually have much bigger solar panels (3×2 feet) that can charge laptops. :D

  5. I have seen similar solar panels like these at CDR King and of course they are much more cheaper. The quality is questionable though.

  6. I also seen a laptop charger sold on ebay philippines.

    GM90 Solar Charger

    I found this item in MetroActive magazine last year and for a month I convinced myself that I need it to be part of my shack. This solar charger became another crazy purchase I made on a rainy season.

    I find it impressive on the first week, a full charged GM90 could recharge three mobile phones; I was not able to fully charge it under the sun but I could say that it was able to harness and convert solar energy into power even on rainy/cloudy days. Using USB it could get fully charge in a little less than 4 hours.

    After two weeks, I surrendered the unit for check up; it’s no longer working as expected. The symptoms begin to show as early as week one, the unit stayed for another week for the scheduling of the pick up. USB charging takes longer (it should go for 3 – 5 hours) and goes beyond 6 hours. An hour and a half of charging to one mobile phone will render the unit drained.

    After three weeks, I got the unit back, according to the report…

    Complain/Trouble:
    Not properly charging using the USB cable, not sufficient for charging

    Findings:
    Normal charging time using its USB, was able to charge two (2) units from a single charge thru USB

    Remarks:
    Two (2) times tested, twice for the charging the Solar Charger thru USB, twice for charging two different phones, for return

    Determined to make it work as promised, I tried to isolate the issue between the mobile phones (LG KU250, Nokia E63, Nokia Supernova, and Nokia 6300) and the power supply (IBM ThinkPad, HP Pavillion & Zebra Regulated Power Supply). Unluckily the GM90 still doesn’t work as expected. I had a series of tests already and there seems to be no significant difference in its ability to fully recharge a phone. I recharge the unit for 5 to 6 hours on a regulated 5V power supply (it’ll take longer if I use either laptop or desktop USB). The “fully charged” GM90 could only go for an hour and a half to recharge a phone and in my case it’s from empty to 3/4.

    It’s not reasonable to recharge the GM90 for six hours that could only go for an hour and a half and can’t even fully recharge a mobile phone.
