This product is made with the intent of using a solar panel to charge multiple cell phones with a battery backup to charge to keep a constant flow of power all day. With proper sunlight, the device is meant to charge up to four cellular devices as well as an internal battery reserve. This reserve is used to maintain charge even during periods of low output from the sun. Which means this device can be used to charge cellular phones indoors, outdoors, in a remote location, or even in the dark. This project was designed to be low-cost, low-maintenance, and easily deployed by end-users.
