REPLACED BY THE FUSE 6W
The Voltaic Fuse 4W Solar Charger is one of Voltaic’s Fuse line of standalone chargers. What’s exciting about the Fuse 4W is that it has about the 4 times as much solar power and twice the battery power as other compact solar chargers on the market. Who has 12 hours to charge their phone? What if you have any other devices?
The Voltaic Fuse 4W provides up to 2 full smartphone charges in a summer day, plus holds another in reserve for charging after daylight hours.
The Fuse 4W also has the ability to switch between 6 and 12 Volts which lets you charge a 7.2/7.4v DSLR camera battery via a direct connection to a 12V DC charger base (see our “Camera Charger” section). Or use one of our USB chargers for dSLR cameras.
