This is our Fuse 6W Solar Charger. It's a solar charger that's designed to power up tablets and smartphones and easily attach to things like backpacks or bike racks. So on the front of the panel, on the front of the charger is a 6-watt monocrystalline solar panel and you may have seen me do this before but I will do it again. It's super tough. Designed to take a beating and will last to about almost any situation. Inside the charger, the panel connects up to this battery. This is our V15 Universal Battery and it can be charged up from the solar panel, can be charged up from an AC charger or any other USB port. Once full, this battery will charge an iPhone about 1.7 times or it will charge an iPad mini about 75% on the way full. Right now I have it connected up to this iPad so it will be charging the iPad while we're talking. Inside the case we've got a nice mesh pocket here so you can store any charging cables. There's a back pocket here so that you can put in your tablet or something else. And there's another mesh pocket as well. And we're gonna close it up. On the back of the charger there's two mesh straps that are sewn in really tightly and those provide a number of attachment points. I'm gonna show two quick ways to attach onto devices. Sorry, attach onto objects. So the Fuse will come with a couple of these universal straps and the first basic method to attach to something is a loop so you can put this strap through here, connect it to anything where you have a strong point and tighten it down. That gives you one attachment point. The second way that's even better is the Fuse comes with these female clips and you can put these female clips just like I did onto the bag. I'll but this clip onto the bag. And then what you can do is simply clip the Fuse right onto your bag in seconds. And these can certainly tighten up. So then you have a nice firm attachment between the Fuse and your bag or the Fuse and your bike or whatever you're gonna attach it to. And that's it, so the Fuse 6W is a lightweight solar charger. It's got a good amount of power and it's perfect for charging cellphones and tablets wherever your travels will take you.
