Default Picking the right charger?

Dear Androids,

I using my SGS 1 alot and specially when i'm out, I would like to buy a solar charger but not sure how to fit it to my phone.

My phone battery has 1500 mAh and i'm not sure if it matters which charger i choose (there are diffrent mAh on every charger).

Do I need to fit the mAh to my battery specifications or can I use which ever charger I want?

How does it goes?

thx

I recommend a battery power pack like Anker 5600mAh.
It'd charge your phone's 1500mAh battery about three times.

I don't recommend solar chargers with a build-in battery, better a power pack and a separate solar panel ... about the reason see below ...

In order for a charger not to damage a li-ion battery, it needs to have a charge rating of 0.3-1.5C of the phone's mah. Basically, it needs to have an mah output that's 0.3-1.5x the mah capacity of a phone.

Slip of the pen (or finger ): "mA output" would be right.

My solar panel works as stand-alone solar charger, I did buy it here ...
Solar Charger Solar Battery Charger Swiss Solarcharger Solarcard

The customs part was a little tricky because the panel is Swiss sale.

You might also have a look at this thread about a solar panel which seens to have the same quality
