Will this unit charge he easy acc 12000maH battery pack? It mentions can be used with 8200 and 10000 but not the next one up at 12000....? 21 days ago
In short Yes. The reason it doesn't mention all the battery packs is, I suspect, that once you get your head around the lower limit (around 5,000mAh) it will charge the whole range, it's just that while it would take say most of a day to fully charge a 5,000mAh battery it would take maybe a day and a half for a 10,000mAh unit and two days for a 12,000mAh. Okay once you get into the two/three day to charge size yu ought to be thinking about multiple panels. But I'm not going there! Have fun
Wold this charge a an ipad air and a blackberry z10 also can it be charged with a mains plug 23 Jul 2014
I think you can use it on any device as its a stadard USB female output. You would just need the right adapter for your device. However, You can't charge it up from the mains but you can buy a technet power bank or similar and charge that up using this, or the mains.
Will this be compatible to charge EasyAcc 10000maH battery? Would I also need to buy a regulator or the battery can be charged directly from this? 22 Jul 2014
Yes it's compatible with the 10,000mAh battery. The charge circuitry in the battery also serves as a regulator for the solar panel output. If you're using the panel to charge phones or other items directly normally there should be no problem. However in very bright direct sun the panel delivers around 6 volts and the charging circuitry in some devices, as a protective feature, stop charging until the voltage drops a bit. In which case a charge regulator would be advisable.
It handled lite rain, but I was not comfortable enough to leave it out in the heavy stuff. It sat nicely inside my tent window then, charging my mp3.
