Chase has a $20 cash back promotion at eBags.com when you use Chase Pay. You will also need to use order code "MERRY" to get 20% off your order. Furthermore, a certain CB site is doing 12% at eBags.com making this approximately $32.00. Free shipping as well!

I couldn't find a ton of reviews on it. Only one 5-star review on Amazon. Here are a couple others:

Worth maybe $20 - $25 at the most. The solar panel on these battery packs is a gimmick, it would take 4-5 days of sun to charge this (assuming at least 10 hours of direct sunlight)
16,000mah is worth less than $20 by itself. If this was in the $20 - $25 range after all the hassles, I may have considered it.

Any recommendations for a better option for camping and outdoors? We'll need something rugged and waterproof to charge a couple of phones and a Go Pro.

This seemed like a decent price but certainly interested in looking another options.

GoalZero if you want to pay a premium but lots of cool peripherals. Something like this plus a +10000mAh lithium battery pack for value version...

I'd say it is a little gimmicky as it does take a day in the sun to charge but when I've taken something similar to this on multi day backpacking trips it's served me well enough.

I'll usually tie it to my backpack and let it charge up while I'm hiking and then use it to charge my phone and gps at night.

I've had friends use solar chargers but they are at the whim of the sun. Although solar chargers are much lighter.

I think there are pluses and minuses to everything. It's just up to you to decide what you are willing to live with and what is most important to you.

i have to say at $35 this is a little overpriced.
