5.0 out of 5 stars A good power bank with solar panels 9 July 2014
By Sid Nuncius HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Green
Length: 4:16 Mins
I was sent this power bank by the manufacturers for review, and I think it is very good. The unit has a reasonable capacity: 5000mAh is enough to charge most mobile phones a couple of times or a tablet roughly once - although it depends on your individual device, of course. This makes it a really useful thing to have around if you're going to need a lot of use from your device but may have limited access to power for recharging.

The power bank will also charge itself via its built-in solar panels. This could be handy if you're away from a power source for a long time, but it is a rather limited function. It is listed as charging at a maximum 200mA which, by my mathematics, means 25 solid hours of bright sunshine for a full charge. I'm not really sure about the practicality of this beyond a bit of emergency recharging, but it may well be handy if you're hiking, camping and the like.

The unit is very well made for outdoor use. It is robust and well protected by a shockproof edging so it should stand up well to the rigours of outdoor life. It is compact and slim at about 14cm x 7.5cm x 1.5cm and pretty light at 140g. It's a good backpack item and it comes with a little carabiner which would enable you to carry it out in the sun while walking for solar charging.

It is very simple to use. Just plug the micro-USB lead supplied (or any other micro-USB lead) into a USB port and the micro-socket on the power bank and it charges at a slightly leisurely 1.5A. While charging the LEDs show a charging display. (One LED shows green when charging via the solar panels.) Using it to charge your device is just as simple - there are two USB ports into which you can just plug your device, switch on and it will charge in the normal way.

Well, the product is not bad looking. But that's all.
The capacity is NOT 6000mAh. According to the test I've made charging different types of phone many times - it's not more than 4000mAh.
It CANNOT charge iPad 3G. So I support for the other tablets also.
The USB ports are protected with some kind of funny rubber covers, which easily fall off and leave the USB ports unprotected.
The solar panel - well you should know the performance of this kind of stuff - almost none. With charging speed of 200mAh. the time for charging is significant.
Inside of the box, the product description is saying that after full recharge(which is during 5-7 hours) the charging LEDs should turn OFF. After almost 12 hours they still don't turn off. This means that the software is not properly written and it can be overcharged the battery.This is lithium polymer battery, there is a possibility of explosion when it's overcharged. So this is a big deal.

P.S. I bought two, they are the same! Even on one of them, the second LED light isn't working.

P.S.S. The power bank is 6000 mAh at 3.7V. The output is 5V. The first conversion will bring you almost 85% of productivity. The second conversion is inside the phone - your battery is also at 3.7V. For this conversion you will have also 85% of productivity. To finalize - 6000 mAh*0.85*0.85= real 4335 mAh(at most).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great charger, solar aspect works but slowly 5 July 2014
By KM #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Yellow
The Expower charger is a 5000mAh solar powerbank which can be charged in the normal way or via the sun which means it is free power!

In the box you get -

- The 5000mAh powerbank which is 5.7 x 3 inches
- Usb charging cable
- A carabiner to attach the powerbank to your rucksack or such
- Instructions

I've had a few of these solar chargers and this is built better than most.

The powerbank itself is well made from very tough plastic and has a black rubber bumper most of the way around it for protection as this is an outdoor item. The front is all solar panel and it has four blue LED power indicators and an on/off power button. There's also a lanyard hole for the carabiner to fit through. On the top corners you have a USB port each side and Micro USB port. The output of the two usb ports 1amp each. They are plugged with a rubber seal.

This charger is claimed to be water and shock proof.

The powerbank takes around 7 hours to fully charge up from the mains electricity so all four indication LEDs are lit.

You can now take this out to charge up your digital devices on the go! It works spot on in doing this, no problem.

How does the solar aspect of it stand up?

Starting from flat I left it in my garden facing south for one day. It was a nice bright sunny day in Liverpool. After around ten hours of charging via it's solar panel one LED light was showing. So after eight hours or one days worth of sun it had taken on around 25% (1000mAh) power. So you're talking approx 5 sunny days to fully charge this powerbank up by solar power.

So yes it does work albeit slowly.

If I was taking this out I would ensure my devices and this powerbank were already fully charged.

Colour Name:Blue
External batteries are a must in my electronic-dependent life, and the addition of emergency solar charging makes this Expower power bank a real winner. Yes, the solar power panel is not as efficient as charging it via wall outlet or computer, but I was able to get a 1/4 charge in a few hours of direct sunlight, something that could be a lifesaver for a camper or hiker or anyone in the midst of a long power outage. With 5000 mAh of battery power, this has the ability to fully charge smart phones at least twice, depending on the phone. (Note: power attrition rates lower the actual available power for all external batteries. This one will charge my iPhone 5 with its 1440 mAh battery about two times, with a little power left over.)

My main concern with this battery -- and it doesn't limit the performance -- is the claim that it's waterproof. When I charge the battery in the summer sun, the plastic case buckles in the heat, and it separates on one side. It is impossible to snap the case together. When it cools, however, the case once again fits in place. The problem is that there is nothing between the case and the inner workings of the battery. The electronics are exposed as soon as the case is compromised. Even when the case seems to be tightly connected, I can see little gaps where water could get in. I would say that this battery may be somewhat water resistant, but not waterproof. If you are looking for an external battery to take, say, whitewater rafting, you may not be able to depend on it. Otherwise, this is a fine battery.

This charger comes with a carabiner-style clip (make sure the rubberized oval is securely back in place in the oval after you attach the clip), a short micro-USB to USB cable, and an old-style Apple adapter.
