The panel(s) I got are rated at 14W/2.55A (peak sunlight). I'll never see that. But for the items I do have, there is no problem charging/powering them, even a few of them at a time (via USB hub).

I don't own a STUPIDphone (and never will), but I have charged both an Android and a tablet w/ both rated @ 2A's. Well, the specs on the plug says they require 2A to charge but only draw 1.6A (thanks to my USB meter).

I can test items inside or outside. Also doubles as a small DMM. I made a custom stand I can tilt around to get the best angle. Meter tells me the optimal position. And the stand breaks down and is portable.

Also, good cables mean a lot. Not the over-hyped Monster cable-like ones. But ones that are made for "charge only".
