QQEER 20000mAh Portable Solar Charger

Whether you go out on a solo backpacking trip or take your family camping for the weekend, you should always have a way to communicate with someone back home. Don’t forget to bring your phone and make sure it’s fully charged before you go. You’ll need a way to recharge your device so pack a power bank, as well.

The QQEER 20000mAh Portable Solar Charger is a good companion to have on your adventures since it’s designed for the outdoor. The power bank should be initially charged on a wall outlet for 6 to 7 hours. You can then use the solar panels to charge it outside.

The compact and portable solar charger is water resistant and dustproof so you really have nothing to worry about when you hang it on your backpack while hiking or climbing a mountain.

The QQEER solar charger comes with two USB outputs that you can use to charge two devices at the same time. There’s also an input current also located on the top side of the power bank. All three are protected by a waterproof cover.

The solar charger is compatible with most smartphone brands such as Apple’s iPhone, Samsung and HTC. Go-Pro cameras, tablets and other USB devices can also be charged using the solar power bank. Always check the green LED light on top of the solar panel to see if it’s working. The blue light, meanwhile, will tell you what the status of the battery is.

When it gets dark, you can use the built-in LED lighting to brighten things up. The LED flashlight comes with three functions particularly the steady, strobe and SOS modes. There’s also a compass built into the back to help you navigate.

As for the rest of us, we could use a day or so in the great outdoors to cure our cabin fever, which is, of course, nothing compared to what the frontliners and patients are experiencing right now.

When you do get the chance to go camping once the pandemic is over, don’t forget to pack the camping essentials. A sleeping bag, for example, is a must-have since it will help keep you warm and comfy so you can sleep well under the stars.
