Good price for power bank, but solar charging is a gimmick. Left mine out all day for two days in direct sunshine during the bank holiday weekend and still stayed on one blue light out of four!
Agreed, the solar is not really viable due to small panel size. That said if I was stranded in a desert I may feel differently!

Yes, didn’t suggest differently that’s why I left heat.
This is dangerous . If the battery gets too hot in the sun, it will burst into flames. Don't risk fire , your life and property.

Wait till you go up in flames. Haven't you seen photos of a burning lithium battery even when it is not being heated. Safety is paramount. Amazon should not even be allowed to sell this unless they have some way to separate the battery from the solar panel to keep the battery cool.

But the bottom line it highlights our own personal positivity or lack of it. Inspires me not be a thermometer, but a thermostat!

I’m surprised you’re complaining about fire risks but missing the more important fact that it doesn’t have QC 3.0? Jokes aside though, lithium battery in the sun just doesn’t sound like a good idea...

On another note am surprised AUKEY put their name to a solar power bank when solar is useless on one of these...
Edited by: "plewis00" 16th May
It hadn't occurred to me until reading these comments, but yes, sticking a solar panel to a big lithium battery doesn't seem like the smartest idea ever.

Perhaps I'm wrong, and they're designed sufficiently that it's not an issue. I've read that lithium's optimal operating temperature range goes up to 55C, so maybe the heat of the British sun simply isn't sufficient to be a safety issue. Supposedly, these things should be built to be safe way above that 55C temperature. Whether the Chinese gunk off the Amazons is actually safe is another question.

I'm sure the hot desert sun could push it to a problematic temperature, which surely means on occasion the British sun could do the same?

Back to the important point... anyone own one? Looking for a another new charger after my Anker Powercore from scan @ £9.98 failed after 4 weeks... disappointed. But as not bought from Anker direct it's refund for me.

This one seems pretty decently priced for a 12,000.

Despite what people say, If it was such a hazard, then why is it still on sale, surely if there were hundreds of power banks exploding across the world, then we, AUKEY and amazon would all know about it!

I like Aukey, but someone said in another thread they have had 'fire issues' and just swept it under the carpet. I cannot comment first hand though. I still buy their products as their customer service seems good and their stuff gets good reviews, only so much one can do.

Np.
I used to think Aukey stuff was great until I had to deal with Aukey's support. Sneery, arrogant, unhelpful, and not what I had expected. So bad I sent back the Aukey item I had and complained about the "support" sending in a copy of the answer - which was never answered itself.
So.....I stopped buying Aukey, your experience may be a whole lot better and I caught the wrong rep answering support

Look at your comments and those you were replying to. The context certainly implies it.

Regardless I don't see anything that merits banning in this thread and I don't think HUKD would benefit from mods getting itchy with the banhammer over minor stuff.
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and its a decent power bank. As others have mentioned there's not much "solar powered" about this as i've had it in the sun for a week and there's no increase in the blue lights. So please don't buy it thinking you'll be able to charge your devices up for free using that big yellow ball in the sky.

For anyone trying to recharge their power banks using the inbuilt solar panel....just, don't. Regardless of potential safety implications, all you are doing is degrading the batteries.

That was funny, I must admit, but he does actually have a valid point. There is a reason why there are so many strict procedures about transporting lithium batteries, and when they go they really go, so to deliberately put one in direct sunlight and heat just seems crazy.

Personally I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole.
WTF? Not available for Northern Ireland customers? So it's alright for me to pay for prime membership but not for me to expect to avail of it. This must be wrong.

Hi, I'm thinking of buying this as it's a good price and good size. Just want to check, you would only not buy this because of the solar panel. If I just treated it as a normal power bank, was in the sun same amount of time as if I bought one without the panel etc, it wouldn't be more likely to overheat would it?
