Solar battery bank

Battery bank I found on Amazon.com. Pretty reasonable item. The solar cell works well enough for topping it off, just don't leave it in direct sunlight too long or the LI-PO battery will get destroyed. It's got a micro for charging the bank. There is an indicator light to show solar alignment, and a few for charge status. It can output ~ 2 amps over the dual USB ports, which is plenty good for powering my tablet.. and small 5v projects.

It's got a 2 cent bubble compass on the back, like every "survival" item. Of course it leaked from storage and temperature changes, so I removed it.
