I bought one a couple of days ago and it seems pretty good quality. Quite robust. Haven't tried the solar charging yet, but you shouldn't expect a lot from it, due to the panel size. But whatever, it's £7.99

42% of the reviews are poor. Buy cheap buy twice. Not a good deal.

Heat !!

Btw it’s mr switch or mrs witch ..

Well never mind
15000 for £8......not bad at all.....

I got two incase ones a duff
Ordered thanks
Comes with 1 year Warrenty
I'll be going to Egypt with this solar power bank.
If the capacity is right it's a good deal but don't expect the solar panel to do anything useful (compare the size of it to a proper solar panel).
LED light feature #2: "quick flash blast proof and the Wolf".

... OK then.

No it won’t. It probably cost more to manufacture the panel than the energy it’ll make over its lifetime. Many tests have shown these things are useless and the surface area it has means it would have to have non-existent solar technology to do anything useful. Just go and look at the actual size of a real 10W panel and make your own mind up (it’s about 10 times bigger than this one).
Now £9.99
Do not buy - the solar element of these devices just do not work!

Good comment.... if you're lucky this is just printed to look like a solar panel which is probably less destructive to world resoruces than making a panel that's also useless

Thanks - and even if it did match the 15000mAh claim, I would imagine other corners have been cut so I would be going for a good normal power bank like an Anker, RAVPower, Aukey, etc. Even if that does cost more than this.

I once heard that the panels just about have enough power to run the LEDs to tell you the charge status but in cloudy weather even that can slowly drain it

No one is trying to stream 4K over 4G and charge via these. We have a national electrical system for such. But if you want to stop battery depletion with data off (2G mode) and a phone being a phone and save some cash/environment on charging then it should work, I used to have a small panel on my car dash maybe twice the size charge my car battery slowly throughout the day - I never could not get the car started even in winter in the colder part of the U.K. - Scotland,every little helps.

Please just understand the physics behind the solar panel and then make your own mind up. A 10W solar cell is many times bigger than this and needs direct sunlight to work at full efficiency (not cloudy or an obtuse angle) so just think what this is going to do. But by all means buy one and report back on how well it works - even if it could stop battery depletion (and I doubt it as I couldn’t even stop discharge when using a 14W solar cell in the UK), I’m not messing around with airplane mode/data off every time I go to charge my phone.

The solar panel doesn’t work properly, it’s also why none of the big brands make one.

Well maybe you don’t switch off 3/4G, half the people I know do - so I text them. I’m not buying one, I’m simply saying in the right circumstances they will function, I only use my iPhone 6S constantly for data access but my 5S is always carried and ready for action on another network with a Mophie. If I could get a Mophie with inbuilt solar it would sit on my window until I was leaving and slide it on. As I said..the charging/decharge ssue is newer data built networks not the original 2G.

But if you were in a situation where some charging over no charging was needed...same as having gas cooking at home I always have a 15000 capacity external battery as fully charged as much as possible. It’s prep. If I didn’t have either I would want something that would allow me enough power to switch on and send a text - perhaps even with my coordinates on it and HELP, even if I had to watch it charge dawn to dusk up the highlands first at least I know I could switch my phone on & do that or have enough power to have a 999 call routed over any network to say I’m stuck here’s my coordinate. The fact is don’t let power get under 10% before switching off as you may have to try each 2/3/4G setting for available network for a 999 call to save your life.

We had two of these power banks last year during hiking trip in Italian alps. Device is heavy, and unless charged pretty useless. After two days of carrying it with us we decided to leave them in the mountains and pick them up on the way back.
So we did leave them on the stone, with direct sunlight, for 9 Full days.
It gave us full 1 (one) bar out of four after nine days. I think solar panel is just there for a laugh.
Reviews on Amazon seem to suggest it takes upwards of 48 hours to charge fully via the solar panel, and I'm assuming that's in direct sunlight. This is the main reason for the negative reviews. Nobody is suggesting that you can go off grid with this, at least outside of the Sahara desert. But it adds virtually nothing to the weight and bulk, and is super cheap. Try finding a non-solar 15000MAh battery pack for less. And the stated capacity doesn't seem exaggerated. It's about the same size and weight as my Xiaomi 15000mAh power bank and seems to hold just as much charge. And 58% of the reviews are 4-5 stars, and were probably written when it was a higher price, so I'm not alone in thinking this. Ultimately, if you're slating this for its poor solar performance, you've got insanely high expectations for £7.99

Kinda like a regular 15000mAh power bank then?

And still, 1 bar (quarter charge) is more than you'd get if you left a regular power bank out in the sun
