The issue I've found with these panels is that the built-in USB port is not very efficient, the most current I've managed to see from it is around 4.9v and 0.5 amps. This isn't even up to the spec of 5v at 1amp (5watts).

The panel itself is capable of pushing out a full 13 watts if you use the 12v cigarette lighter socket adapter on the 8.0mm output. That way you can easily draw an amp at 5volts from the panel.

To say it's not very efficient is a difficult statement to quantify, but my logic is that using the supplied cigarette lighter socket adapter in the 8.0mm port and a charger like [http://dx.com/p/131439?Utm_rid=65939668&Utm_source=affiliate this one], I'm able to pull much closer to the panels rated output.

WIll it charge my iPhone 4, 4S, 5? iPad etc.

The issue I've found with these panels is that the built-in USB port is not very efficient, the most current I've managed to see from it is around 4.9v and 0.5 amps. This isn't even up to the spec of 5v at 1amp (5watts).

To say it's not very efficient is a difficult statement to quantify, but my logic is that using the supplied cigarette lighter socket adapter in the 8.0mm port and a charger like this one, I'm able to pull much closer to the panels rated output.
