Seems a good price, for a solar charged, power bank. Free delivery for those on prime, but additional costs if spending under £20, for non prime members.

Only buy for the power bank, not if you actually think it will ever recharge in sunlight! But I’d probably go for a proper brand, without the pointless solar charge panel
A useful travel accessorie
Now all we need is a bit of sunshine
Why do people always think you need to put these solar panels under direct sunlight? Solar panels work just fine with daylight.
50% additional capacity at 15000mAh for only 36p more fulfilled Amazon here, although usual conflicting spec in description stating 12000mAh not 15000mAh and image shows 10000mAh - just make up your own description. Fortunately fulfilled Amazon so you can send it back when Amazon send you a piggy bank not a power bank.

I know! It’s a trick question! These power banks don’t ever really recharge in sunlight, direct or indirect! You only need to look at the size of the measly thing on this vs. the size of a real 10W panel (hint: it’s about 5 times bigger or more) - it’s just simple science.

The only way this thing might show increased charge is from the cells being slightly warmed by the sunlight.

Anyway, serious question - if these actually worked don’t you think Anker, Aukey, Ravpower, etc.would have made one by now? Or someone would have made a phone case with one on the back? They haven’t, because the size of this thing makes it pointless.

Solar panels on these are utterly pointless, even in the brightest of sunshine it would take days and days to charge up and often these panels are fake anyway. I seem to recall reading that on some of these the solar charging LED use up more energy (from the battery) than the panel can provide

22% of reviews are 1star so set your expectations accordingly
