I've got one of these:

which is half the price and twice the output.
In decent sunlight it'll charge two smartphones simultaneously at full current.
That's not a guess, I've measured it.

It's also out of stock...

In addition to that, whilst you make complaints about price on each thread we publish you seem to have no problem with directing people towards Amazon - a company that is guilty of massive tax avoidance. May I suggest you re-calibrate your priorities and direct what money you do spend, irrespective of how much that is, towards companies that actually pay their taxes.

Or buy from Amazon and donate part of your saving to charity?

Blimey, you sound cross.
I did a search for the solar charger and copied the first hit in the list, which just happened to be Amazon.
Someone recently suggested that instead of commenting purely on prices I could also suggest alternatives, which this time I did. I don't see what's wrong with that.
I've quite a bit of experience with solar chargers, and £70 odd quid for a 7 Watt panel is an awful lot.
Cheers, Si.
