When buying a power pack or solar panel charger you need to make sure you are using the right item for the correct outdoor pursuit. Wether you are going to a festival with friends and you need to keep your phone or camera fully charged or you are planning to live off grid and you need to use a solar charger, then we have the perfect item for you.
In this blog we will be explaining all the information that you will need to know in order to understand what would be the best product for you.
Firstly when looking at PowerTraveller items you may have come across the term (mAh) this stands for MILLIAMP HOURS which is based on how long a battery will last when power is drawn. For example a 2000 MILLIAMP HOUR battery will power a device drawing 100mAh for 20 hours. A Standard phone would be roughly 1,500, a laptop is between 2,000 and 6,000 and a head torch can be between 4,000 and 5,000 MILLIAMP HOURS.
As well as milliamp hours it is also important to know how much voltage there is in each item that you are trying to charge. A phone has approximately 5 volts but a laptop has roughly 19 volts, if you are wanting a charger for long periods of time or to charge bigger items like a laptop then we think the best item would be the Falcon 40 Multi Voltage Solar Panel as this item can simultaneously charge 2 x 5v items and 1 x 20v item at the same time.
Sometimes although these items can be a little bit pricey it is definitely worth having a solar charger or power pack to charge those important devices. If you don’t want to spend as much but you want a great item to store in your car in case of emergancies then we think the Nighthawk 15 is a must have, it is a power pack and a torch in one, it has 3 integrated light modes- high, low and SOS and has a really handy smart charging automatic on/off detection plus it is only £29.95!
