The solar charger lets you partially charge your handset battery via sunlight.

Even when away from home, you can charge your handset battery by placing the charger in sunlight.

To charge via solar power Place the solar panel directly in sunlight towards the sun on sunny days. Perpendicularity to sunlight improves charging efficiency. To fully charge the battery Use the optional SoftBank electric charger. Solar charging is supplemental.

Solar charging is not effective when:

  • Sunlight is not strong enough (such as outdoors on rainy or cloudy days) or indoor lighting is used.)
  • The handset temperature is too high or low.
  • The sunlight passes through glass (especially UV glass).
  • There are stickers, etc. on the solar panel.
  • There is dust or water on the solar panel.
  • The battery still has over 75% of power left.
