Solar Joos Orange Portable Solar Charger

Solar Joos Orange Portable Solar Charger

JOOS Orange gives you power anywhere without the compromises of other portable solar chargers. It’s tough: Super durable and waterproof, it reliably delivers power where and when you need it. The JOOS Orange works in real-world light conditions (low light, in the shade and even light rain) it works fast: Charges at least 3.5x faster than any other portable solar charger at the same price. The large 5,400mAh replaceable battery pack holds enough energy to charge your smart phone several times, and can even charge an iPhone about two and a half times. The JOOS Orange is the best-performing solar charger under the sun. Most important, the JOOS Orange is rock-solid reliable.

Product Features

  • Versatile. Portable. Reliable.
  • JOOS Orange is designed to charge all personal electronic devices (cell phones, smart phones, iPad, iPhone, MP3 players, GPS devices, portable game devices, Sat Phones etc.)
  • Powerful and fast. JOOS Orange captures up to 20 times more energy than other solar chargers. 1 hour in the direct sun = 2 hours 3G talk time.
  • Its thin rectangular shape makes JOOS Orange easy to carry and store. Adjustable legs make pointing it towards the sun a breeze. And, if you don?t get outside much, the on-board battery can be charged from your computer or any USB power source.
  • The internal battery pack will keep its charge for years. And the JOOS Orange keeps charging when submerged in water.

    The perfect compromise and must have worry-free solar battery When it comes to devices that charge your gadgets on the go, there are tons of external battery options out there, tons of portable solar panels and transportable solar panels out there, and finally, many crossover devices that are portable solar panels with built in external batteries.Of all the choices out there today, one of the seemingly clunkiest has got to be the Joos Orange.At 1.5 lbs, it’s certainly not light, and at 5400mAh, it’s weight to battery capacity ratio is far far below average. A 5400mAh battery can charge an iPhone 2.5 times. At that capacity, external batteries that have no solar panel or ruggedness are far far smaller. In fact, batteries of roughly 1.5lbs typically hold over 11,000mAh or more, more than double the capacity of the Joos Orange.And solar panels, no matter how incredibly efficient, are still not very efficient at all.So, why do I LOVE this solar panel battery so much?Three main reasons and one small reason: – FIRST, it’s got the most efficient solar panel I’ve seen yet. Keeping in mind that I can’t really tell the efficiency difference between a 3″ solar panel, a folding textile based solar panel, and the Joos Orange panel, the only factor I can really use is how fast it charges. The Joos can charge its internal battery via the sun about 5% every hour, requiring 18-22 hours to fully charge. That would typically mean about 3 days of charging by sun to get one full charge of the 5400mAh built in battery. But since a fully charged Joos Orange battery charges an iPhone to 100% 2.5 times, the Joos battery really only needs about a 35-40% charge on itself in order to get an iPhone from 0-100%. Basically, that means just over 1 day of solar charging = 1 full iPhone charge. Put another way, in a pinch, roughly 1 hour of charging the Joos battery in direct sunlight charges an iPhone enough for 2 hours of talk time. And that’s damn efficient compared to other portable solar panel chargers I’ve seen to date. You might argue that It’s less effective than a trans-portable solar sheet, but it’s way more effective than any portable solar device I’ve ever seen. It’s likely more efficient per square inch than a transportable solar sheet, and of course, you can’t really charge a transportable solar sheet while walking around, as you have to set it up on a stand. NOTE: Two other solar chargers I own are much less efficient as they get about 10-20 minutes talk time with a 60 minute charge and have only a 1000-1500mAh battery built in. Better than nothing, for sure, but a far cry from the Joos Orange and really only good in the most desperate of conditions. – SECOND, Toughness. There are two major thieves of the weight to battery capacity ratio. First, the solar panel itself adds a lot of weight to the battery (and forces the larger size too) when compared to pure external batteries. Second, and just as big a thief of the weight to battery capacity ratio is all that ruggedness built in. And I truly, deeply thank Joos for that toughness. This little gadget is so tough you can drop it in a stream, pick it up, and it’ll keep on working. You can have it out by the pool and if it gets splashed on or if it accidentally falls into the pool, no problem. You can wash it under the faucet or in a stream if it gets dirty….This baby isn’t just water resistant, it’s completely water proof, and submersible. In addition to that, it’s also shock proof and dust proof. That’s not just worry mitigation, that’s worry proof. In an emergency situation or out camping/hiking/boating, it’s one device you can count on for years and years of use and storage. For that kind of maintenance free and worry free toughness and dependability, I’ll happily deal with the reduced weight to battery capacity ratio. NOTE: There are plenty of folding transportable solar chargers out there that are water proof, but the very nature of a product made of textile material in these large and cumbersome folding solar panels means that these chargers need regular care and maintenance and have higher risk factors for damage over years of use and non-use (long term storage can dry and damage textile materials without proper maintenance and care). The simple, solid materials of the Joos Orange means that it will not suffer the wear and tear prone to textile materials. – THIRD: Light range. One of the biggest problems with most portable solar panel chargers is that they just don’t work under cloudy conditions. The other ones I have don’t charge at all even on a sunny day unless aimed directly at the sun. The Joos Orange may not be a sci-fi level super fast charger, but even under cloudy conditions, it charges. It actually, really, charges. This alone is an unbelievable value in my eyes. This makes the Joos Orange the only useful portable solar charger I’ve…
