    Solio Solar Charger for Pearl?

    Advertisement



    Has anyone tried the Solio? It's a little collapsable solar phone charger. I've read a wide variety of reviews on it. Seems many people love it and many hate it. The only mention I found about it and a blackberry was that it fried someone's Pearl. Definitely not what I was hoping to hear, but I thought I'd see if anyone has some experience with it. I'm hoping maybe someone out there has tried it and can let us know if it works.

    It says it's compatible with all the Blackberrys. However the device specs say it outputs 0 - 1 Amps. Blackberry chargers are rated at 400Ma (or 0.4 Amps). Not sure how it regulates amperage. A spike may cause a fried 'berry. They have a 1 year warranty on the device, but says nothing of coverage on your cell phone. I'd ask them about that before using it. Especially if all you've heard is a horror story. Unless 20 stackers speak up with a good experience.
