Battery Pack + Solar Charger

Discontinued August 2017

The solar device that started a movement

Choose the CLASSIC2 for its large battery size to provide power to multiple devices while on the go. Power smartphones like iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, e-readers like Kindle, tablets like iPad Air and even bike lights, water purifiers, GPS watches, headlamps and more USB-powered electronics.

A day of direct sunlight on the 3200 mAh capacity CLASSIC2 captures enough energy for two charges for iPhone 6 or 1 charge for Samsung S6 or tops-off popular tablets depleted one-third or one-half to a full battery. The CLASSIC2 features a full-sized USB port allowing thousands of devices to easily connect just as they do to a USB wall charger.

The iconic Solio three solar panel Solio design has been updated with more battery capacity while larger solar panels allow for more energy capture than ever before. Like the Solio BOLT, this Solio is designed for powering Apple "i-Devices" like iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and iPad Air meeting their exact charging protocol.

Anything -Simply connect to the CLASSIC2 using your device’s own USB charging cable.

Anytime -Holds charge for up to a year making it ideal for emergency preparedness kits.

Anywhere -Charge the CLASSIC2 from the Sun or any standard power USB port.

Simple fast charging

The CLASSIC2 1Amp USB output charges target devices at the same rate as a typical wall charger. Popular smartphones go from empty to full in just under 90 minutes. Since most devices these days charge by USB, it's more simple than ever to Plug Into the Sun™.

Sundial for energy capture

The ingenious design of the Solio CLASSIC2 allows a pencil to be inserted into a central pivot point to make it possible to track the sun like a sundial. Simply point the CLASSIC2 towards the sun and rotate it until the pencil no longer casts a shadow. Adjust the position of the CLASSIC2 each time the pencil casts a shadow for maximum solar capture efficiency. A full day in full-sun completely charges the battery.

Charge when the sun goes down

When the sun goes down, the CLASSIC2 battery can be re-charged via the micro-USB port. From USB power, the 3200mAh battery charges in 6 hours.

Compact for travel

When the CLASSIC2 is not spun open to capture energy from the sun, it slides into a compact package that fits in the palm of your hand. At only 10.1 ounces, the CLASSIC2 easily tucks into a backpack or messenger bag and provides battery back up for a multitude of small electronics while on-the-go.

One button does it all

The Solio CLASSIC2 has a single LED push button. When the CLASSIC2 is capturing energy, the LED button lights up RED. Push the button one time and the CLASSIC2 flashes slowly 1 to 5 times to indicate battery level. Next it begins to flash rapidly to indicate power output. Depress the button one more time to turn off the power.
