Ascent Solar Kickr IV Portable Solar Charger Review

Solar & Wind EBooks



I’ve been in dozens of situations that make me uneasy. The last one being a five day outage at home due to a wind storm in Southern Oregon. From then on, I’ve been on a quest to provide my family with uninterrupted power when (not if) the grid goes down again.

For the last few years, I’ve reviewed multiple portable solar devices, however I only recommend ones that I deem worthy of our attention.

The Ascent Solar Kickr IV Portable Solar Charger is one of those devices.

Although I believe my demands are not too unreasonable, there are a few requirements that need to be met.

#1. I need a solar charger that will keep my Galaxy S3 cell phone completely juiced during the duration of the outage.
#2. I need enough power to keep my Black Diamond Revolt Headlamp fully charged.
#3. I would like to be an extra supply of power though an external power pack like the Jumpr Slate Power Bank

    Quadruple thumbs up?!  We like that new measurement! Thank you for such a thorough review, +Grow Your Heirlooms. We can't wait to watch the next one for the Jumpr Slate!

  2. That 5100mah power pack/bank is a bit large dimensionally W×H. It is pleasantly slim though. I have a power bank less than 1/2 the W×H of that power pack/bank and has a whopping 16,000 true MAH of stored energy. It is thicker, probably 5× thicker but still I would consider it far more portable. Otherwise great solar charger for sure.
