What is in the Box?
The inside of the box includes a multitude of items which include…
- Charging Cable
- Suction Cup
- AC Adaptor
- AC Adaptor plugs for North America, Europe, United Kingdom, Austrailia
- Instruction Leaflet
Of course, the Solio Classic was also included in the box. We got ours in the Classic Black for this test. The Solio also includes charging tips for the following phones and devices:
- Mini USB (Motorola, Blackberry, Garmin, Iriver etc)
- Female USB (Mp3-iPod)
If you don’t see your tip of choice for your device here, Solio offers a tip kit that will cost you. Hey, they are environmentalists, not pushovers!
Through personal experience with finding myself on some mountain or in some country with no power for my MP3 player or mobile phone, my first thoughts of the SOLIO Classic were , “ It is about time! Cool!!” I am all for a device like this! I just hope it works as good as the marketing propaganda says it does.
I liked the fact that the model I received was geared towards small personal electronics like MP3 players and cellular phones. It came with a magnitude of charging tips for the more popular brands of cell phones and MP3 players. It must be a nightmare for a company like this to keep up with all the different cell phone AC adaptor tips!
I would have to say that all instruction manuals should be like the the one SOLIO provides. It doesn’t give you fluffy stuff and tells you exactly what you need to work the device. The manual is about the size of a square table napkin and is 4 pages long with lots of iconography. In other words it was Stupid Simple to figure out. The back of the instruction foldout has the multiple language Warnings, FCC stuff, Limited Warrantee Info etc.
The SOLIO is also built for world travel as evident by the multitude of tips included. The power adapter auto senses the voltage from the socket and adjusts accordingly. This devices truly does it all.
