Well, there would be various points that will determine whether a solar charger is reliable.

Q&A 2: How do solar chargers work in winter?
Actually, the solar chargers is working with light, not heat. So it’s doesn’t matter how cold the outside is.
As long as the sun is shining, solar panels will continue to produce electricity all year long, saving money and energy, meaning that home and business owners everywhere can use solar electricity no matter the season or climate.

No, even it’s the cloudy outside, your Solar Charger will produce electricity. As long as there is light, your devices will convert it into clean energy.
Q&A 4: What about big shifts in temperature between night and day?
Extreme shifts in temperature can wreak havoc on conventional solar cells and panels. A good analogy for what can happen to a solar panel when the temperature shifts is what happens to our roads. When the temperature is above freezing, rain can seep down into the asphalt. When the temperature drops below freezing, the water that seeped into the asphalt freezes and expands, causing cracks and potholes. Conventional panels commonly fail from hot/cold temperature cycles that crack solar cells, solder joints and copper ribbons over time.
