It's been long overdue, but today we finally got around to publishing our expert review on the GRDE Solar Charger,10000mAh Solar Power Bank Portable External Backup Battery Pack Dual USB Solar Phone Charger.
Our reviews are based on in-depth research and product analysis. Let’s dive in!
- Built in compass
- Includes 2 LED light
The best feature of this solar charger is the 10000mAh capacity that's rated by Amazon at twice the battery life of the iPhone Xs Max. Of course, it's important to note that a charge in a sun spot and an iPhone journey will give you vastly different results, because it's the battery life that matters.
However, no matter how long the iPhone's screen is on, it will typically use double the battery life of the screen turned off. So, a full charge in the sun can take 3.5 hours or so, whereas it will take about 4.5 hours in a 75-watt power outlet.
Not that this is too big a deal, because if the charger takes longer in the sunny spot, you can safely go ahead and get on with your day.
The solar power bank is designed with a 5V/2.1A USB output that can charge two devices simultaneously, and it has the following output and input capacities:
Output Capacity: 5V/2.1A
Input Capacity: 5V/2.1A
The solar charger itself is super lightweight at only 8.8 ounces. There's a button on the solar panel to rotate the light from horizontal to vertical. The lights indicate the amount of solar energy remaining in the solar panel.
The compact unit can easily fit into your pocket or in a laptop bag and it can help you charge your device without having to connect it to an outlet for a long period. Just connect the solar charger to the phone and press the button to get the power.
There's a compass on the solar power bank as well, and a compass with a 3-LED flashlight.
