Product Description

Size Name:11W V2

Product Description

Powerful -

Two voltage regulated USB output sockets with SmartCharge technology to charge the latest smartphones and tablets from Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia etc directly at high speed. Not compatible with the iPod Nano / Classic, HP TouchPad and Asus tablets.

Powerful enough to charge in cloudy conditions, making it useful all year round - use outdoors for best results.

All the power can be output from one socket, or it can be shared between the two.

Thoughtful Design

Weighs 310g / 0.7 lbs and a compact 23cm x 16cm x 2cm when closed (smaller footprint than an iPad) or 23cm x 32cm x 1cm when open - making it significantly smaller than other solar panels with similar power - see photos at the top.

Flexible 22% efficiency PET laminated monocrystalline panels woven into a tough waterproofed polyester fabric case making it suitable for use in the rain, a pocket on the back keeps the USB sockets protected. Folds shut with hidden magnetic clasps for storage.

8 mounting loops around the panel to attach it to a backpack, bicycle, etc.

The pocket is large enough to store a smartphone during charging.

The built-in stand lets you angle the panel towards the Sun and keeps the panel clean and off the ground. Angling a solar panel correctly can have a huge impact on the energy captured. Purchase the 'PortaPow USB Power Monitor' to see exactly how fast your device is being charged and get the optimal angle.

Accessories

Includes micro USB cable to charge an Android or Windows smartphone, and a user guide in simple language.

You can also use the USB cable supplied with your device to charge other devices such as Apple iPhones.

UK Based Support

PortaPow is a UK based company and has been specialising in mobile chargers for over 10 years, feel free to contact us directly via our website for any support queries or in the unlikely event you need to make use of the 24 month warranty.

I bought the 15W and the 7W panels. Both are superb. I would suggest that the 15W is good for car camping and cycle touring while the 7W is light enough for backpacking. Stated specs come close to real-world operation. In perfect bright sunshine, you can expect to see over 2A on the 15W and over 1A on the 7W. Note that most phones and external battery packs will draw max 1.5A whatever is available (but the 15W panel has 2 sockets) I bought this after returning the AllPower 16W which produced only about 55% of the power that this Portapow 15W panel produces. Negatives are the design of the USB connectors on flying leads. I would rather they were fixed in place (like the AllPower) as this will make the panel last longer. I did a video comparison of the Portapow 7W, Portapow 15W and the Allpower 16W here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trtnBgIeFlE

Well I was pleasantly surprised by this. I use it to charge a large USB battery which is stored inside the pouch on the back. I did some measurements to see what kind of power is produced.

It works even when there is no sunlight, and even through glass. I've noticed that through windows the power getting to the USB ports drops by about 30 - 40%, I had no idea windows blocked that much usable light. That being said, during the day with no direct sunlight (Scotland) the device will still works. In these conditions we are looking at about half an amp, 2.5 wats. That is enough power to charge a phone or USB battery, would take about 2 - 3 times longer to charge than your wall charger.

When the sun comes out to play it's a different story. I only have one tester, so was not able to measure the total peak output power. However, I was able to charge my phone and tablet, both appeared to be charging at near there full speed. What I did though just to get some measurements, I tested the panels individually. There are 3 panels, so I folded the other 2 away and directed the remaining panel at the sun (not through glass). Each panel was able to make just under 1amp, so about 4.5 wats. Combining all 3 must get the power supply up to 12 - 13.5 wats.

I'm surprised to be honest, most of the time the power generated by a panel and the manufacturer description are quire off. In this case, I could see this panel possible producing the full 15 wats on a really clear sunny day.

So I bought this to replace the All Powers 7w panel I bought which really want up to much.
Firstly the PortaPow is far superior in build quality, it has a magnetic clasp to hold closed and an embroidered logo hinting at a little bit better quality, albeit slightly more expensive. The large panels will charge in most light conditions although very very slowly in the dull.
In full direct sunlight it will full charge an IPhone in Circa 2/3 hours, far superior to the all power.
Although the PortaPow is more expensive than other solar chargers I feel it merits it's £32 (ish) price tag. I personally charge a battery park, then charge my phone from that, typically a full day in direct sun will charge the pack well enough to charge my iphone 4 times.

I wouldn't be expecting miracles from the panel but it's better than some I've tried (also reviewed), just be patient and maybe invest in a high capacity battery pack to charge your device from.

All in all, a decent product with a potential to be pretty useful, just don't buy the cheaper brands on the market to buy this 1 month later like I did. :-(.

Great gadget - enough juice generation on a cloudy english day to recharge my phone (Nexus 5). Fairly robust construction with good selection of mounting points for strapping to my bike panniers - I have invested in some mini karabiners for this purpose. I have shoved a usb battery in the pouch to give day and night charge capability when out and about. Very happy

I bought the 15W panel along with the Anker 16mah battery and they have been absolutely excellent together. The Portapow panel will charge the battery in less than 12 hours on an average August UK day. Then once the battery is charged it will charge my iPhone 5 about 10 times.

Using the panel to charge a separate battery is the perfect combination. Don't need to worry about iPhone dropping the charge and the solar panel will trickle charge the battery in any conditions.

Since purchasing this panel 4 weeks ago I have never once charged either my iPad or iPhone from the mains. It has meant I've never needed to worry about not having charge for my phone on numerous camping trips.

Would recommend this panel over all others no question. Excellent Portapow!

It fits perfectly on my molle bag with 4 karbiners and when not in use, inside snuggly in one pocket. First time in using it, I took it to a music festival and charged fantastically. Worked fine with my iphone 4s, a couple little powerbanks (2500MaH) and a slightly larger one (kit: 4000MaH) I bought on the p&o ferry on route to the festival. It also charged my brother's HTC phone. When I got back, it worked fine with my Ipad2 too. It charged pretty quickly in direct sunlight on a 30 degree day. It's more than adequate for a music festival, and plenty for any camping, hikes or wilderness trips.

I bought another solar charger for £5 less than I paid for this, it didn't charge as well and only served me well as a powerbank. It didn't charge at all in cloud cover either, where as the portapow did. I've only had the portapow a short while but it does look robust and may last a while to come. The only thing I think might go first are the hoops on the side that allow you to attach it to things. Or perhaps the velcro. Both things can be easily mended.

When folded: 230mm x 164mm x 27mm approx (excluding hoops)
When flat: 326mm x 230mm x 20mm approx (excluding hoops)

There is a pocket on the back of one of the panels which I leave at the top when attached to the bag as I don't store my electricals in it. The panel can get very hot and unfortunately that heat does transfer into the pocket. As there is no air circulation in there I thread cables into my bag and store phones, power banks etc in the bag instead. The pocket is useful when storing cables etc when not in use.
