Customer Reviews for the Juicebar JB01S

Always good to have another opinion

Reviews from 12 customers on Amazon leave this solar phone charger with a 3 out of 5 rating. While this appears a little low at first a number of negative comments relate to not following instructions for the device.

Here's a selection of customer comments from Amazon:

  • I was a tiny bit skeptical when I first ordered the juice bar. But after receiving it, I am truly amazed! It charges so easily in the sun or plugged into the computer
  • This was a present for a canoe trip to MN. My husband has tried the ends and all of the electronics that he will be taking with him can be charged.
  • This product is not meant to be the sole method of charging your item (as some other reviewers have implied or thought). It's for when you are out and about and need a quick charge to make a call, send a text or whatever, not for conducting intensive online research or listening to hours of streaming music while trying to charge your device. Since the device can be SOLAR charged it would stand to understand you need LIGHT to charge it. Other reviewers complaining about it doesn't charge at night, in a cave or elsewhere without light must not understand what solar means.
  • I have only charged this via the USB and it charges in about 3 hours. I take it in my mobile office and have used it many times. It is great at the end of the day when the phone is about out of battery. This battery booster works perfectly and doesn't take up a lot of room in my travel bag. My Blackberry takes a charge quickly from this device when stopping for a charge is not an option. I would not want to wait all day for it to charge up via solar but in the event of a hurricane, I figure it will be a good way to keep my cell phone going when the power goes out. It keeps my iPaq running on long flights too.
  • My experiences with the Juicebar have been hit and miss. With my iPod and iHome portable speakers it works like a charm, charging up the batteries fairly quickly. Things are different with my phone though: Even when fully charged the Juicebar can only fill up about 20% of my Motorola Cliq's battery before it empties.

Mostly positive feedback for the device shows there is some good value for money to be had here.

      Seems useful. I was always afraid, that solar chargers may damage battery, due to low current, but since this one has its own battery as an intermediary, there should be no problem...
