I am going on a sponsored cycle ride and want to charge my blackberry torch on the way.I have bought a solar charger it has a usb connection and an onboard batt 3500mah the idea is you plug phone in to charge then leave in the sun to recharge on board cell.The problem i am having is that the phone keeps saying that the solar charger has not enough power In fact it has more than the usb on my pc 5v on pc 5.2v on solar charger.if i connect phone to pc charges normaly if i connect to ac adaptor charges normaly been on to solar charger manufactuer they say its the phone the solar charger charges my mp3 ok and my old nokia N95(that phone does not charge through data transfer port it has a separate charge jack)they show on websites it charging blackberry curve i dont know if they are the same carging method hope you can help

Re: problems with charging blackberry torch 9800

the volts are not the issue, its usually the amps or in this case the milli amps aka ma.


Solar power usually is low ma and the battery on the solar charger should be charged first before trying to charge the Torch with that solar battery.
