UPDATE: Love the solar charger. But on the last trip it stopped charging my Apple watch. Not sure why. But it would charge my Anker PowerCore Fussion 5000 battery which does charge the watch.
My first solar power charger. No built-in lithium ion battery.
I chose BigBlue 28W USB Solar Charger over similar products based on the positive Wirecutter review. AND this one is quite inexpensive.
I plan to use it mostly for bikepacking where weight is less a concern. But I carried it on a few hikes as well.
On the bike, it can get bumpy.
Mostly I’m wanting to keep charged:
- Apple Watch
It works well in direct sunlight. Slowly when overcast.
