    Highly recommended!

    Posted by Josh on Nov 24, 2018

    I'm not using this in quite the rugged conditions that some of the other reviewers are - I simply need a way to power my laptop when I am away from a power supply. But, wow, I was very impressed by how fast this battery gives me a full charge on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C55t-C). I think it's actually faster than plugging it into the wall, how that is possible, I don't know. The weather hasn't been nice enough to fully test the solar panel, but I had a few sunny days where I was able to put a multimeter on it, and I have no doubt that it will perform well.

    Highly recommended!

    Flawless performance!

    We sent this kit to Eldoret, Kenya, to be used for charging a laptop computer and cell phones. Power is very uncertain in the refugee camp, and this kit is being used to charge phones for a low price. It's improved the lives of many people in the refugee camp. Thanks, Voltaic!

    No More Coffee Shops... Hello Mother Nature

    Posted by PatrickGorman on Aug 24, 2016

    I purchased one of these kits to power my Macbook Pro for when I go on road trips. In my career I am constantly on a computer and I need a direct way to charge my laptop at all times. With the Voltaic 17w kit... I'm no longer limited to coffee shops, bars or restaurants to work when I need to get out of the office and back to nature. I love the freedom of being off the grid and I no longer have to feel bad about sitting for hours in a coffee shop.

    I love the 17w kit so much that I decided to purchase another one and retro fit my road trip van with a 12v fridge. Instead of running it off the car battery (which means it only stays on when the cars on)... I now have a way to constantly keep my food and beverages cold 24hrs a day without the risk of it killing the car battery!!!

    Tough, reliable and long lasting battery power

    Posted by Gaz on Aug 23, 2016

    Having taken this set up into the jungle in Africa, dropped the battery roughly 300ft off a big wall into the jungle below and still had it function, i'm pretty smitten with it. The panel does a good job at charging the battery, though, I personally prefer 2 panels linked together to get the required charge for my computer as I am a heavy power user.
