    Excellent product - what stands out is the quality of the design and finish. A lot of thought has gone in to making it very user friendly. It is lightweight, easy to use - ideal for hiking/camping.

    Very well made, works beautifully

    Posted by Kristin Zhivago on Aug 28, 2020

    I love Voltaic products and frequently recommend them to others. So great when the power goes out - between this setup and a cellular hotspot device, I can just keep working as if nothing happened. Works perfectly.

    I LOVE my Voltaic!!!

    Posted by Sharon Accornero on Apr 13, 2020

    I need my computer for work and live on an Island full of surprises (hurricanes, earthquakes and economic crisis)… I LOVE this system! It’s perfect! I have a Microsoft Surface and I use my Voltaic System to charge it. It let me charge it at its full capacity while using the laptop and after that, I still got more power left. The system can charge in a couple of hours when is directly under the sun. I really love it and recommend it! Excellent quality!

    Arc Panel

    Posted by James on Apr 12, 2020

    Great set up. Used an old camera tripod as the base and turned through out the day in South Africa, Mongolia and SE Asia. The extension cable from panel to battery is a must. The panel is sturdy and well made with great light collecting abilities, the battery as well. The attachments and cables them selves are a little on the fragile side. This is somthing that could be improved on. With the use of the battery, the panel and a good charging schedule. I was able to charge lap top, camera batteries, iPads, phones and speakers. The USB bulb a bonus on certain days. All in all probably one of my most go to pieces of kit. Well done

    A great value for the modest price...

    Posted by Brian H on Jan 13, 2020

    I am extremely impressed with Voltaic's products and their customer service. I purchased the 20w solar charger kit and it has exceeded my expectations. A great value for the modest price. I had an issue with setting the system up because of the brand of laptop computer I had, and Voltaic's technician Gabe solved the problem very quickly for me. It works great and I look forward to purchasing more of this company's products in the future.

    These are fantastic products and worked perfectly in a very remote rainforest setting in Papua New Guinea in 2018 when we first used 6 of them. They continue to serve the community well and they and we are happy to be bringing another 6 on our upcoming trip.
