Please note that the 20000mAh - 30000mAh capacity is absolutely false. It's not possible to achieve that capacity in a housing that small. Approx battery capacity is 8000-1000mAh.

The good thing is that with the solar powerbanks is they have batteries in them that are charged by the solar panels. I charge them in the bright sunshine in the mornings where it's at the peak. Rather than get annoyed with the limitations, I see the limitations and work around them and see how much benefit I can get out of a system. The solar powerbanks are really useful because if you use them right, they can do a great deal of good.

Tips: Put the powerbank into transparent plastic sleeves/waterproof phone protectors/or even a transparent plastic bag. Hang it up on a window that gets a lot of sunlight. If the only way you can get full sunlight is outside, the plastic cover will protect it from rain in case the weather changes suddenly.

Someone said he had issues with the solar powerbank he bought. For me I take things really seriously and am not here just to sell you a product by hook or by crook. I started this project off to offer solutions as best as I possibly can. I don't know the actual issue as to why the product did not work effectively for him yet. If it was a faulty unit, I am most happy to replace or get a *refund (within limits - I will do a write up on this at a later time).

People living in crowded apartments may have less access to usable sunlight effective enough for powering solar equipment, as compared to someone in a home with a garden. Apartment dwellers don't have the luxury of hanging a powerbank up in the open. Someone will help himself to a new toy.

In a previous post I did say that solar has its own strengths and weaknesses. I can either be annoyed at limitations and be unhappy I just wasted my money, or I can figure out how best to use the unit in other ways. Personally I use a window hook to hang up my solar panel. You can do this by using transparent plastic bag and hook, or modify your shampoo bottle etc like in these videos: A large shampoo bottle might just do the trick. Then again a simple transparent plastic bag works as effectively. If you have to use it outdoors, a transparent plastic bag will also effectively protect it in case it suddenly rains (again, within limits).
