But does it keep the phone charged when you are using it regularly? That is, my experience with these little solar chargers is that, if the battery in the device dies, then you turn off the device, plug it into the charger, set it out in the sun all day long (or close to it), and then after that it will have just enough charge for one or two calls.

If you want to have your phone handy, turned on, and using it all day, then these little chargers are not nearly up to the task.

Or has your experience been different?
