What a great product! Very robust, well made from good materials and does exactly what its says! A very worthwhile and useful purchase.
Ordered on 8th Dec, still not arrived by 8th January, no response from Rise. Have asked for refund from rise but no response. Trying to claim money back from credit card company now. Would advise to leave well alone and buy different product from Amazon.
i love this devi e help me alot when going outdoor
It just arrived already charging up the iPad and quality looks great.
Product hasn’t arrived. Emailed your customer service for an update and have only received 2 responses which were not helpful. Secondly got told the delay was my fault as I had emailed twice. Paid for two of these solar polar chargers and was told I can have a refund. Didn’t even tell me where the products where
Still waiting for the solar charger. It was for my son who left 2 go travelling last Sunday....very disapointed we didn't get it b4 he left.
I like the quality feel of the product. I have not yet had a chance to use it as I intend, which is outdoors on hikes or bike trips, it will be tested properly in the spring.
The design is very nice, however no one mentioned in the product detail that it takes about 40 hours to fully charged by the sun, this function is not good for an outside trip. I tried to place it right at the window during a whole workweek but only 25% charged. The product is sold in US but need to be returned to UK!!!
This is such a cool gadget! It takes quite a while to charge.
Got this for away days to keep gadgets charged, girlfriend loves it for keeping her vape going when out.
It can fit in my jacket perfectly and it's the same size as my phone so it's pretty easy to carry around.
Compact, environmentally friendly, well designed, affordable.
Works great and has a lot of charging time!
Ordered 2 gifts for my children for Christmas on 22nd November. It’s now 21st December and they still haven’t shown up.
Great product. Environmentally friendly; reasonably priced; cool looking; what's not to like!
Its hard to say how good this product is, as although I ordered it in plenty of time for christmas, it hasn't actually arrived yet. Maybe, IF it arrives I'll be able to provide more information at a later date
Great experience. Item is a quality item and works just like it is supposed too.
OMG! This is the BEST rugged lil power pack/solar charger I own and I own 8 (returned several others)!! Rugged lil SOB with an amazing LED on the back and LED indicator lights showing charge level. But seriously dual solar panels charge at the same rate as my Ener***er quad panel portable charger (If it's cloudy and overcast in San Diego ~ 3 days for 10K mAh battery) that doesn't come with a flashlight nor is it very rugged :( Definitely BUY THIS NOW!!!!!!!!!!
I love how it charges from just the sun
I absolutely love this! Just smaller then my Google pixel 4 XL. I bought 2 so I can use one while the other charges up. Also comes with a charger to charge the product faster then solar. But being off the grid the solar will be wonderful!!
Still waiting for delivery of the solar chargers so I cannot give a better review but I am waiting patiently for them. Do you have any idea how long more they will be?
Beach & jazz festival
Looks amazing, a well-finished product. Haven't had it long enough to talk much about its performance but it has proven very handy for me on multiple occasions.
It has been easy to take my phone and gadgets anywhere now that i have all the power i need! Being out of the house all day has been a blessing thanks to my new charger.
I mainly bought the charger so I can use it on vacations. But I've been using it daily to top off my phone at night when I get home. I'm pleasantly surprised with how speedy the charge is! Great product!!
Build quality is better than expected. The solar charging is slow, over 1 week and still had not gone up 1 bar.
so far is been really good i tend to use it when i’m not able to reach an outlet even if i’m inside.
I used a portable battery before but I haven’t gotten to use mine yet. I haven’t had the time to pick it up from the post office yet
This is an awesome tool for when an outlet isn't available!
Well, I just got my Infinity solar charger yesterday, so it's hard for me to say much about it. But having it for only one day, I've been charging my phone multiple times during the day. I didn't need to worry that my phone needs to be plugged and cable is not long enough. The charging speed is amazing, better than the other power bank which I've used before. I think it's worth the money to own one.
It so so amazing! When it came it I started to use it right away and I loved it. The best portable charger I've had!
Wow! What a fantastic charger. Usually, when we need one, it's not been charged. So frustrating. FINALLY, SOLAR CHARGER! Love, LOVE it!
Very convenient, no need to charge with a wall charger
The customer service department was very helpful in getting my package tracking location. The product is very nice
What a stunner of a charger! This is everything I wanted it to be and more. We do a LOT of long distance hikes/walks and taking photos with my phone camera is something that lightens my load (not needing to carry a heavy camera), and having a charged phone is a necessity in the middle of nowhere. This little beauty is lightweight, compact and effective. I can hang it from my backpack and walk on knowing that it's being charged up from the sun herself and have no worries for my phone battery depleting while we're out there alone.
so for the last few days my city has been overcast so i havent even taken it out of the box, but like a child with a new toy i couldnt wait. Standing inside by a window i unfold it and it starts charging to my surprise! This charger is activated by event the slightest amount of photons! Everyone needs oue of these. The days of looking for a wall outlet are over and done with!
Took it camping for the weekend in cloudy weather and it kept my phone charged all weekend! Love it
After a long shipment process, the item did come in and has become now my constant partner on the go. It has already saved me more troubles than some other dinky portable charger. My only one wish/request: That the USB-C input be implemented or altogether replace the current Micro-USB.
Love it plan to buy more for Christmas
One more free power gadget at my disposal.
I use this product day since I got it . I used the light twice today it’s a great tool .
This device has been extremely useful from waiting rooms to hiking. The charge is fast. The device is no bigger than a cell phone.
Can’t take it into certain temperatures. Does not like cold weather hiking. So there is limited usage! Bummer
I love this product!! I’ve had friend who have purchased over solar panel portable chargers that told me not to buy them because they overheat and stop working. However I’ve been using my rise charger for about a month now with no issues! I even put it on the dash of my car when it was 95-100 degrees F out and it’s still going strong! Mainly bought this for playing Pokémon go and my battery dying however now I use it on a daily basis!
Used it on backcountry deer hunt. Absolute essential!
I work security and use my personal a lot, this helps keep my battery from ever dying on shift
Great product that can be charged of the plug and solar which is great when I'm out doors, great build quality and reasonable price too.
Nice simple product use it for when out walking, good back up, and in my work bag ready, as travel a lot so need back up, Good price as well delivery took a bit longer but Customer support was good and kept me informed
Still experimenting with uses for it.
This a simple and handy device for recharging my phone when I am out hiking or on my boat fishing. It will recharge both my phone and my wife's phone at the same time, and as long as it is daylight, it is continuously recharging itself. Compact and light, it is a great device for people who get outside and away from it all, but who need to stay connected.
The solar power bank doesn't work very well. By sunlight uploading the powerbank don't go further than one blue light ball. The power bank is only fully charged with a plug.
Was bought to keep my daughters mobile travelled during a camping trip and during days out. But her phone use is a little too hard core for this little battery pack to keep up with. Its not particularly quick to charge off the solar panels and up until a 2 week holiday to Greece I felt the solar panels were a little gimmicky - but in the Greek sun the pack charges up in no-time. The quality I feel could be a little better - the black edging around the solar panels seems to be fixed using double-sided tape, which on my unit, keeps peeling up. I'd say this is ok as an emergency charger, but for a demanding 14 year old I'll stick to carrying my 30,000 mah bricks!
Great for primitive camping off the grid! Heavier than I wished but its because it holds more power than most brands. Looking forward to using it to our next outing.
Really impressed - 2 USB sockets. Charges quickly and keeps charging whilst powering the mobile. Has meant our household has unplugged 3 phone, 2 iPads and a kindle - all come get charged by the RISE solar power charger. I had to wait 3 weeks for delivery - but was notified about this and the customer service communication from Danielle was prompt, courteous and positive. So far, all good!
Sadly took nearly a month to arrive but the staff were kind enough to keep me informed of its whereabouts. The charger worked great at first but now takes days to recharge via the solar panels and makes a rather concerning highpitched buzzing sound when I plug my phone in and sadly the solar panel has started to pop out. Don't let my review put you off, this is just my personal view
Absolutely love my solar charger! Love that it helps reduce my carbon footprint & fits easily in my bag or pocket!
It’s great, I use it all the time - even in bed because my plug is too far away!
Iv used my portable solar power pack both in work and out hill walking .found it to be exceptional at keeping my phone powers all day long while in constant use very well made and it dose what you say it dose .
Currently using the solar power bank in the Swiss alps. Absolutely perfect. Charges my phone every day and on the go.
A good ,sturdy charger able to charger two phones or phone and another product at the same time. Very handy when hiking.
Really handy to charge phone, in fact more than one device at once. Love that it is solar powered! Working well so far
This is a fantastic piece of kit. I am currently on Crete and the unit is fully charged. It is periodically charging 2 mobile phones a pair of bluetooth headphones and a tablet. It has maintained full power throughout. Superb
Sturdy device and charges even with artificial light. Glad it can charge two devices at once and it is more green than the mains electricity
I have only had this a short time, but it seems to be working very well. I am just off on a trip to Crete where I will give it a full test.....but so far so good
Another no show unfortunately. I purchased the solar charger to use while I was away at a festival. The festival was 2 weeks ago and I ordered the Rise Solar Panel a good week before I went. I'm sure It will be great when it arrives and I will use it to charge my phone every day instead of plugging the phone into the mains.
Faster deliver than expected and great for holidays as you don’t have to charge them! The sun does all the work
Took a while to get here, missed my camping trip. As I have seen from other reviews order at least one month before any planned event you wish to use it for. Great bit of kit when it did arrive. Well made.. Still requires long term testing but very good for now.
I can't give u review because I'm still waiting for it to be delivered after nearly 6 weeks of waiting
Excellent little solar charger. Bought for a multi-day kayaking trip where we needed extra juice for the GPS unit and cameras. This little unit worked perfectly, attached to the back of the kayak in the day in a clear watertight map pouch and then recharged our gadgets in the evening - perfect!
Good sturdy piece of kit, I'm very pleased and great customer support, would recommend well worth the money.
I placed the order a month ago and have still not received it. I would not recommend ordering it unless you only need it in a few months time. As to product performance - who knows'.
I think the solar charger will be very useful
My order was placed weeks ago I have complained many times saying I have not received my item so postage is terrible and would not use this site again.
Would answer these comments if I had actually received it. Would never deal with Rise again. No goods delivered and no reply to emails
This product is terrible. It takes forever (days) to charge with sunlight, took 3 weeks to arrive (from China - this is meant to be a London company) and hours to charge using a mains socket. Then when I charge my iPhone, it keeps cutting off. When it does work, charging my phone takes literally hours and it never reaches a full charge because the product itself runs out of charge. If my phone is fully out of charge, it won’t charge at all. Unless I have a faulty unit, all the rave reviews on the website are fake. I can’t find any good reviews on this product on the internet. Really p’d off to be honest!
I haven't had it long but it seems like a very good purchase. Unfortunately there was no manual enclosed.
I use my charge pro in the van while I work on site, charging while I'm working, what could be better!?! Perfect for blasting the tunes on the long journey home.
It arrived a bit late so missed my two camping trips but we'll go again soon and can't wait as it's such a pain without electricity. It arrived fully charged and I asked for an electronic manual to be sent as it was missing from the package. Customer service is reasonably quick and straightforward, do not wait and contact them immediately. The leather is really nice, I personalised it with one of my son's stickers. The internal light is powerful and handy too. I let my husband charging his ipad on the train home and gave to to a customer (tourist) that was in trouble and because of H&S issues we do not allow charging on the premises. Can't wait to use it more and more. I wish I would have thought of it earlier! My friend bought a cheap one from Lidl before the camping trip and she found it useless and wasted. Considering I paid only 15£ more than hers I am overjoyed I didn't waste an electrical item on the Earth
The solar powered external power source charger works. I think it will be useful on sunny holidays and if sunny whilst travelling in the car.
I ordered the solar charger on 7th July for my sons birthday, I got a confirmation email that delivery was 10days which was after his bday so asked to cancel several times to be told it had already been processed, it has just arrived 24 days later. I did get a response with each email I wrote & they apologised for the delay. But ordered same kind of amazon which came 2days later, seems a good product just a shame the delivery was so long. I now have to send it back which is a hassle & think they could have cancelled & refunded tbh.
A brilliant solar charger, could not be without it
Portable and quick charge for both my phone and tablet
Ordered, paid for, never arrived!! Con trick!!!
I have only used it once on a fishing trip seems to work well but need to used for a more prolonged period to make an informed opinion
It took longer to get here than was told to the point i emailed asking what was happening. i Got a quick response that was helpfull and when it arrived was worth the wait. Gary
I ordered my items on the 28th of June and I am still waiting for them (it's 28th of July and almost £100 worth of items BTW) so I can't really give a review on the items but I can say that the customer service is quite bad, they are not quick at replying and they don't seem to be honest about dispatch and delivery times. They told me my items were shipped on the 16th of July. I am still waiting for them (on their emails: Please allow 1-2 days after receiving the dispatch confirmation email before trying to track your order. International shipping may take 6-10 business days for delivery"). The courier company gives back a "Your parcel will be with us soon" when using the tracking number (quite likely meaning the parcel is not yet with them). In summary, terrible service in terms of shipping the items and being honest about timings. I asked for the option of a refund if the items were not going to arrive on time for when I needed them (19th of July) and they didn't even reply to that query. I start fearing I won't even receive them.
I love the product as an out door person it's very handy.
Charging up my earbuds :)
Already recommended to friends!
I'd never heard of the concept of a solar charger before. This is the best invention ever!
The added feature of the torch is genius, it really is built for the outdoor enthusiast. The torch has 3 settings, static, SOS and strobe.
took mine to Wimbledon! Come on Federer!
It charged 2 devices pretty quickly which really surprised me! Thanks :)
Good addition to my camping gear. Well happy with my purchase
It held up well under wet conditions when I used it last week. Under strong sunlight the solar panels work great! It's robust and the torch has been useful as well
I've been waiting to buy a solar panel charger due to long days at work and I decided I'd give this product a shot. It's durable and effective.
This product is just what I needed! Thank you!
Hardwearing, charges nicely, bit on the heavy side but pretty robust.
