    I bought this as a gift for my dad who wanted a hands free device he and my mom could talk on while driving. I decided on this one because of the price and the solar charging. He really likes it and, from my experience talking to him, his voice is clear with very little background noise. I was a bit skeptical going with an unknown brand but it had the best reviews, I found, of the solar charged car kits and he really likes it. Mission accomplished.

        Comments about IOGEAR Solar Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit:

        I have an older car (no Bluetooth) and a friend suggested the Iogear solar Bluetooth from B&H. Not only was the price reasonable and B & H s service prompt, but the unit works beautifully. The fact that it is solar powered is icing on the cake. Super easy to set up and use and now I am hands-free and legal when I drive and talk! I would recommend this product highly.

              This device is great. The best feature is the solar charging. I don't ever need to charge it if I keep it in the window. It's relatively easy to use.

                I keep this in the house to use as a speakerphone for my cell phone. The quality of the speaker and microphone are so good it allowed me to ditch my POTS and just stick with my cell phone. I keep it lying solar cells up so when there's light in my bedroom it recharges and it is effortless to use. Just a perfect solution!

                          I have only had this for two weeks, but aft the initial charge, I haven't had to plug it in, and its still working great. The auto off feature is great, sure not to drain the whole battery. I park outside, so sun is always available. I'd imagine if you're parked in a garage all day that may be an issue.I still have yet to see if it will last longer. May have to re-evaluate after using it for two months or so...I like that I can take it with me if I travel/use a rental car.

                                    Had this about a month - is very useful, but don't know how much power left. It easy pair with phone. Because of the compact size, It is easy to setup and store.

                                      I have one of these in each car. I put the charging receptacle on the dashboard instead of the window. I have the other receptacle on the visor.

                                      I have never used the charger accessory. The solar charger just works. Friends say the sound is okay, not great, not bad.
