In this episode I review 5 Watt Foldable Solar Panel Charger form Harbor Freight Thunderbolt Magnum Solar for my modern digital life.
This was a great solar charger 3 years ago, but now there are better and cheaper products. One major problem with this solar panel is that when it isn't getting enough sun to generate power, it will DRAIN power from the device and appear to be charging. If you continue to use these panels, I would recommend you get a USB power bank to charge instead of hooking up your devices directly to them. If you plan on picking up another solar panel, I suggest checking what's on Amazon first. There's solar chargers on there with hundreds of positive reviews that are up to 18w for less than $40. If you don't shop on Amazon, the HF one is fine, but grab a power bank.
I'm looking to get one to charge my phone and/or my 5,000mah portable battery. how long do you think it would take to charge a phone or 5,000mah portable battery?
