We have standardized on AA batteries and we carry these in our bug-out-bags for charging. The foldable solar panels are very lightweight and fit easily in a secure pocket (3.25 x 5.5 x 1.38 inches folded). The charging lights indicate charging progress and completion. The grommets make it easy to hang for best exposure to sunlight. The USB connector is useful for charging other devices and the unit can be used as a power source by leaving batteries in while connected to a device via USB. Specifications: Solar operation: 36 v, 4 amps USB charging: 5 v, 1 amp

This is a great battery charger for your home or retreat. While we own and use a few different models, including many solar charging units, the AlphaPower from LaCrosse Technology includes some features that we have not found on other products. Specifically the 4 operating modes – Charge, Discharge, Refresh, and Test – combined with the individual LCD displays for each charging compartment make this unit essential for battery maintenance. We recommend purchasing two units as larger batteries (such as C & D cells) can take a lot of space and decrease capacity.
