Solar Chargers

Postby 63ChevyII » Sun May 29, 2016 4:00 pm

For those that use them, what solar charger/powerbanks are you using? Any good or bad experiences with them?

I just received my first "nice" solar charger. Looking at the box, I was a little surprised to read this on the box:

"The less you use the solar panel to recharge the battery, the longer the battery will last"

Looking online I found:
"RoamProofs product's battery life will decrease when the solar panel is used to recharge the device's battery. Extend the life of any internal battery by charging through a wall adapter using provided charging cables."

Is this the norm?

If you're interested in seeing specs and my photos of the unit I'm talking about, you can see them here:

Looks very solid. Dust/water resistant is nice. I've never used a battery pack with solar cells. I do have a Jackery and an Anker battery pack that work pretty well.
