The ARC 10-Watt, Compact Solar Charging System includes a rechargeable Li-polymer 44-Watt-Hour battery pack with a 1000 mA USB output port and a 2000 mA USB output port. The battery pack can recharge most Iridium, IsatPhone, and Thuraya handheld satellite phones listed below 2 or 3 times before needing to be recharged itself. This means you can even recharge at night using the battery pack. If the battery pack is completely depleted, the solar panel can recharge it in roughly 4 to 6 hours of full sunlight, meaning you can charge even while you are walking down the trail!
