Introduction

Don't be fooled by the "green" revolutionaries. Even though many of them are crazy, there are some excellent things coming out for the real person. Solar panels are coming down in price and up in quality. They offer a way of harnessing the sun's energy when it is visible. This is "free" energy that plants use right now. Arctic Cooling has taken the solar panel and fused it into a portable power source. The Arctic Cooling C1 Mobile can be charged by USB or solar and provides its power through a standard USB port.

Packaging

Arctic Cooling has a very distinct look with their packages. If you have read our previous Arctic Cooling product reviews, you'd know that they keep the silver and white packaging for all their lines. Branding is very important. Take note of the 4440mWh battery on the packaging. Normally, battery capacity is measured in mAh (milliamp-Hours) and not mWh (milliwatt-Hours). More on that later.

The back of the product contains more information and specifications. The package states that the C1 Mobile provides the USB charging port supplies 5.5V which is much higher than the 5V USB standard voltage.
