Camping with the Amp
I really enjoyed the Voltaic Amp Solar Charger - I was extremely surprised by the ease of use in the field and the durability of the case. At first I was nervous about the solar panels scratching but they're fairly rugged - the unit even chargers in dimmer light as well (cloudy weather). It's easy to switch from charging a phone, to a camera, or an MP3 player and all your friends want to use it as well. I've had smaller solar chargers in the past and you can tell those are sub-par compared to the Voltaic. I would definitely recommend this item for others who take weekend or week-long trips that need to have a recharge device along
