Does this work for an iphone 5?

Does this work for an iphone 5?

Best Answer

Yes it will.

All you have to do is plug your USB iphone 5 charger directly into the USB port on the solar panel. You won't need to use any of the adapters that it comes with for your iphone.



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Great product but not compatible with newer Apple products. Only 4S and Ipad 2. At least the version I have only is. May have been updated since and I somehow bought older model. I use it to charge external battery and then charge devices and it works very well.


has a adaptor for Samsung 4s phone

has a adaptor for Samsung 4s phone

I'm pretty sure. But if your Samsung charging cable has a usb end, you can plug it into the usb slot on the Solar Monkey.



    This product is insane. I do alot of cycling so weight is a massive issue, this product is super light weight so i just strap it onto my pack and i dont even realize its there! In the evening i use it to charge my phone and gopro. I was worried i might have damaged it when i got caught in a massive rain storm but this little guy had no issues and just kept on charging! Massively reccommend to anyone! This monkey is AWSOME!


    Great for Backpacking

      I used this last summer on several backpacking trip in Colorado. I used it to charge up iPhone up every night after using it all day for GPS, music and camera. I attached it to the outside of my pack while we hiked all day and it charged up over the course of the day. I get about 1.5 charges out of my iPhone 4S on a full charge. I usually charge it up at home before my trip via USB to make sure I have a full charge before I go. The product is rugged with the rubber over molding and the nice case it comes with.

      Based on your experience, do you think this will work: Leave home w/ solar panel and iPhone fully charged. Paddle by canoe out to remote campsite for a week. Keep the solar panel in the sun every day, plug in the iPhone into at night. Could we go a week like this?

      Yes. I seem to be able to get a full days of use out of my iPhone. By night I am down to 20% or less on my phone. I just plug it in over night let it charge my phone and then leave on my pack all day to charge. I really do not have any experience with the Solio so I can not give an honest comparison. All I know is that this product sounds like it will work for you. We seem to be using it for similar purposes and I love it.
