Re: Solar phone/tablet chargers

The marine 12v sockets destroyed my verizon cell phone charger nor would it allow me to use the regular 12v usb plug. If you have a 12v on board you should at least have one automotive one that doesnt have the lock ring on it. On that trip on a friends boat out of refit there were 5 people with no way to recharge since there were no inverters and the generator failed. I went and got a little 30 dollar solar charger/battery on amazon. It works great though it likes to use its on cables for charging.
