Holds charge well over time. Light to carry and easy to attach panel to pack with charge unit in dry area. Excellent service by Cotswold to replace first one - see bad points.
First one was ex-demo and didn't hold charge. returned for new replacement. no problems yet but might indicate problem in future?

Very light & compact
Slow charge. Takes about 3-4 days on a sunny S-facing window ledge to charge up fully. Best to periodically plug it into the mains then use sunlight to top it up inbetween times. Charges up a phone & Kindle ok but no use if you need to recharge a device every day.
