Don't expect the solar panel to charge your charger quickly. At this capacity, you would probably have to put the charger in direct sunlight for days. It does have a MicroUSB port for charging it the old fashion way. With large capacity power banks like this one, look for QuickCharge input/output.

Just spent a week camping with my 20000mah bank. Took it almost a full day to charge while plugged into the wall... can only imagine how slow solar charging would be. With that said, I grabbed one to try out. I mean it's not like it's too much of an inconvenience to leave it out in the sun all day while you're camping and just bring into your tent when you go to bed.

This is perfect for camping and I love that it has two USB ports (one for my husband and one for me). Two are probably best, though (one for backup).

I bought a few of these for a local homeless camp. Great for homeless, camping, vacations and so much more

Solar panel equipped power banks seem to be swarming the market, so while this is a good deal it's nothing special. We will surely see several others in the $10-15 range weekly.
I have an "x dragon" 9000 mah one. It works fine, but as others have said, the solar panel charges very slowly. It took mine roughly 20 hours in direct sunlight to go from 50% to 100%. So if you are very reserved with your phone use while camping, or if you just have a basic flip phone for emergency calls, this could sustain you indefinitely. But if you have a modern smartphone or tablet and run the battery down daily, do not expect this to keep up from solar alone. Won't happen.

Thanks, it looks like the reviews on here are also suspect.

Quick math shows that it'll take 75 hours to charge by solar,m or three days with direct sunlight. Assuming 12 hours of direct sun a day, you are looking at almost a week.

That's personally not that bothersome to me as I can see this sitting on your dash not doing anything but charging until you need it. I'd also envision this being fully charged once starting a camping trip and the solar to extend its usage.

My big concern is that they only expect 500 full charges with it and that's disappointing, so with that short of a shelf life, that's where I am on the fence because if you are charging it solarly, that means it's always "on"/"charging" and that has to have an impact on it's lifespan.

I get what you are saying but a full charge for this thing (15000mAh) will charge most smartphones 3-5 times. I agree that solar charging, which has to be very hot, will have an impact on the lifespan but even then, we are talking about easily 1000+ phone charges during this thing's life span. At $15 we are talking a little over a cent a charge.
I would think if this thing actually gets used for camping or other outdoor activities, physical damage of some kind is much more likely to end its life than battery degradation.
*edit* Just clicked through and discovered this is supposed to be really resistant to drops/shocks etc. so that eases my concern about the life being cut short via that. However, I still think 1000+ phone charges is fair for the price. This is 3+ years and most batteries don't last longer than that.

So. based on your math, 1 charge = 1 week, meaning lifetime of device in constant use would be 500 weeks, or a bit less than 10 years.

I think you'll have forgotten about it by 2026.

Yup just a another seller trying to hock generic stuff by giving the impression that it's a slickdeal. They get a pile of 5 star reviews by giving the item away for free, then make up a fake discount code to put on slickdeals so people get suckered into thinking it's a deal even though nobody has ever bought one of these at full price.
