FAQS:

 

 

 

1.       How quickly will the Ascent XD12 charge my devices?
 This depends on the device and the sunlight conditions. Assuming the panel is placed in strong, direct sunlight, the Ascent XD12 will output its maximum power. For best charging results, use your device’s original cable or a certified third-party cable.

4.       Is the Ascent XD12 waterproof?
The Ascent XD12 is weather resistant, so long as the output port or cable connection stays dry and is not submerged in water.

5.       Does the Ascent XD12 hold a charge or have a built-in battery?
No. To keep this USB solar charger as light as possible, the Ascent XD12 by itself does not store power. The panel can charge a USB device directly from the sun, or the power can be stored within a portable battery to then use when the sun is not available.
6.       How does the smart USB output work?
The Ascent XD12 is designed with a smart USB output port, meaning that it determines the maximum power the device is able to receive, and ensures the best possible charging performance directly from the sun.
