Anywhere? Even down here at the bottom of Jame Gumb’s basement pit? (a prompt answer would be appreciated)

The Amazon reviews say it charges at 200 mA/hour in full sun, 130 mA/hour on a typical hike. It holds 5000 mA-hours. The math is not encouraging.

Bright sunlight: Good for solar charging
Bright sunlight: LCD and OLED require much more power to display legible image

Any device? Anywhere? Hyperbole much?


#7

The battery will charge the USB device at 10 watts, but the solar panel will recharge the battery at only 1 watt.

Needs a solar panel the size of a 17" laptop to be effective.
