Review On Quality
Finding a reliable solar panel to charge today’s mobile devices is not easy. There are so many to choose from – most, from a consumer’s perspective, do not work long or well. The Nekteck Solar Charger is one of the few exceptional mobile solar panel chargers on the market today. It features 3 solar panels and 2 built-in USB ports that’s capable of delivering up to 2.0 amps max per port or 3.0 amps max overall. It is durable and water resistant (not waterproof!). It also folds up really nicely for easy portability. It also has a mesh zipper pouch so users can easily store their cords, power banks and other devices. Unfortunately, it does not have or come with a power bank so users will need to plug their devices directly into the USB ports or use a power bank to store the charge (e.g. Anker). Users should be aware that the longer the USB cord, the slower the charge will be – best to use a 2 inch cord. Depending on the device’s current remaining battery percentage and optimal amount of sun exposure, users can expect a full charge in 1-3 hours. The issue users have with this solar panel is that it needs to be secured or else the wind causes the flaps to close – a carabiner or bungee will help secure it. Some users shared that their panels did not work on arrival, suggesting some quality control issues – fortunately there is a one year worry free warranty on it. Overall, Amazon users give this product 4.6 out of 5 stars with over 400 reviews.
