Some of our featured products

Why is there such a difference in the price of portable chargers on the internet?

There is a vast variation in the quality of batteries (the main expense) in power banks and solar chargers. You very much get what you pay for, Li-Po batteries should not be 'cheap' if they are going to be worth having. The best are Samsung, Sanyo, LG, reliable, safe and low loss on DC transfer, giving more charges per capacity.

All the manufacturers buy in the outer shells and put in their own batteries and electronics and often misrepresent the true capacity. Two identical-looking products can perform very differently. In 8 years of specialising in portable power, we have been very careful in sourcing legitimate and high-quality products, that should work for years, rather than weeks.

What is the right Solar Power Bank or Solar Charger for me?

  • Combined Solar Charger for backup or a few days off-grid, like having the tap on with the plug out, the battery may go down, but slower than without the solar.
  • For extended off-grid and Travel, Treks and Expeditions, choose a separate Power Bank and a Folding Solar Panel or Special Packages, for ongoing power.

Most phone batteries are around 1500mAh - 2500mAh, which will mean a 4000mAh charger will give about 2 + charges before it needs recharging. As an example, a portable iPhone charger of 6000mAh would give an iPhone 5 about 3 + full charges. If your charger will always be in your pocket and you have access to mains each night, you will probably not benefit from a solar charger. For travel, leisure, cycling, camping and festivals, solar has great benefit, free ongoing power in al natural light. Choose how much reserve you want and what you are intending to charge. For off-grid power and extended time away, the fold-out solar panel chargers can give ongoing portable power.

Our smallest is the Power Stick which will give at least a full phone charge (iPhone 5) and hold its power for months. Our largest Power Banks (285Ah) have a reserve of 50 + charges and the Camper + also has solar recovery.  The folding solar panel chargers do not store power but produce continuous power in any natural light to store in your chosen Power Bank.  For boat, canoeing, festivals and camping we also have waterproof portable phone chargers and backup batteries.
