JanVanGenkJust great!

Voted 5/5

I have experience with Foldable 1200. Lightweight, packs small, hang-it-anywhere type and does what it is supposed to do. Charging times for the different types of devices are very reasonable, e.g. for a sat-phone it takes only a couple of hours on average (depending on cloudiness). Worked good even in a tent vestibule while it was snowing a little outside.
