Solio: half day on charge May 7, 2008

Today was a very sunny day. Unfortunately my office is North facing so I don’t get any direct sun-light at my desk. I decided to go up to the west end of the building and place the Solio in direct sun light on a balcony. I left it there between 1pm to 6pm in direct sunlight.

I picked up the charger at the end of my working day and checked the charge. After five hours of direct sunlight it was charged about 50%. The red LED flashed twice. I used the Solio in the evening to charge my Nokia N82 which was totally dead. I found that the Solio, on half charge, could only give my phone about three bars of energy. I noticed that charging stopped after about ten-fifteen minutes.
