      My mom bought me a solar all-in-one charger that can charge cellphone, cameras, and all other electronic devices. Aside from that, the gadget can also be used as a flashlight and a mosquito repellant. This gadget is something new that’s being sold in the market. Everyone is starting to get one. It’s made in China but does not have any particular brand. On its box and manual, the label is simply “Solar Mosquito Repellent Charger”. This gadget can be fully charged by either plugging it into an electric socket or into the computer usb slot for five hours, or by exposing it under the sun for 10 hours. The latter is a good way of conserving energy. It is very useful because you can charge your cellphone and most other gadgets while on the road, without need for electricity. It can also play a crucial role in emergencies for all three of

      its uses. It’s my first time to know of this gadget and I think it’s a very useful and ingenious invention.

      My mom bought three of these, one for my dad, one for her, and one for me. It comes in 5 different colors: black, red, blue, silver, and green. The shape of the gadget is like a small mouse (computer gadget, not the animal), and is very, very light and practical for carrying around in your bag. It’s made of shiny plastic. The product was made in China and costs Php550 each (around USD 12.80).

      The flashlight is activated if you turn the switch on. If you plug the cord into it, the energy for the flashlight will instead travel through the cord, for it to function as a charger. The set comes with many different wires to cater to different gadgets. As for the mosquito repellant, there is a button for it,


      • and if you press it, you will see a light and hear a sound that indicates that the repellant is activated.

        Upon using it, I can say I have a lot of complaints. First, there is no indication if the gadget is already fully charged. This means that you just have to go by the rule of charging it for 5 hours with electricity or 10 hours under the sun. You also have no way to know if it’s already nearing empty and needs to be charged again.

        Second, we tried using all three chargers, by charging them for 3-5 hours using electricity. Then we connected them to our cellphones. The charging worked, but keeps stopping after around 15-30 minutes and we were not able to charge our phones until the batteries were full. Also, sometimes, if you move the charger or your cellphone around, the charging will stop. This is contrary to what the manual

        said that it is ok to use your phone while charging. Also, it is harmful to the batteries if the charging keeps on stopping.

        The flashlight works well and is good for emergency use, while the mosquito repellant does not have a problem switching on although I cannot vouch for its effectivity as I haven’t been to a mosquito-infested area with it yet.

        All in all, this charger is not as effective as it claims to be, and you cannot depend on it for your total charging needs. However, it can still prove to be useful, as 15 minutes of extra charging plus a flashlight can make a huge difference in an emergency. It is a wonder of a gadget though, if only it worked without a hitch. I hope they, or some big name electronics brand improve on this, and release a good one soon as it is very useful and also environmentally friendly.
