This is the perfect kit to learn about solar energy and build something you can really use. Includes everything you need except 4 AA NiMH batteries. Includes a high output USB board that can charge phones and other devices. As long as you have enough power in your AA's from solar charging, this charger will charge a smartphone as fast as a wall outlet. This do-it-yourself solar kit requires basic soldering and assembly skills. Estimated assembly time: 1 hour.

The toggle switch lets you switch from the digital voltmeter (indicates level of charge) to turning on USB output and also turning off unit when not in use. Solar panels charge the AA batteries whenever they are in the sun. When the LED indicator light on the USB board is green, it is ready to charge; and red indicates it does not have enough power.
