This Area was virtually average, much less great. much less bad, just functional, and stored the Energy Bank protected from shocks and scratches etc.
Sometimes it charges at first try, and sometimes it takes a Restart of Phone or Recharge of Power Bank charger to get it to charge. This is maybe due to “Dumb Charging” Protection in Smartphones sometimes to protect against Shorts from charging sources.
Electricity input : 5.0V 1000mA
Electricity output : 5.0V 1000mA
Weight : 180 grams
Quality – Energy bank charger is very sturdy by having an Aluminium body with no visible joints along with a nice powdered fresh paint finish. It’s scratch proof because it appears in my experience till now, and does not attract fingerprints or dust either.
The USB charging port is certainly not from regular, however the charging USB port wire port is slightly loose fitting and appears to be released upon some mishandling throughout charging, meaning it might get disconnected when running or walking.
The size and weight of any laptop have great impact when it comes to considering using solar energy to power the device. Since most laptops will need about 70 watts of power to operate, any solar panels providing this amount of power would be way too heavy to carry about and use where there is no traditional source for household electric current. But, technology can now come to the rescue increasing the opportunity to meet small mobile applications for energy.
Thin Film Technology Reduces Solar Panel Weight
The use of extremely thin film technology creating PV cells has gone a long way toward reducing the weight and size of solar panels so they can be used effectively in conjunction with laptop chargers. Unfortunately, there has not been a breakthrough in technology producing solar cells that can directly power a laptop as has been developed powering a calculator. Furthermore, solar cell technology typically requires direct exposure to sunlight, so any laptop exposed in this manner could easily overheat and malfunction becoming damaged. Furthermore, the concept for direct powering does take away the opportunity to operate the laptop during parts of the day when sunlight is not available, even if it was feasible to do so without damaging the device.
Two Hour Power Limit
Typical laptops can operate for about two hours on a fully charged battery. There are available portable solar power kits that include a battery to operate the laptop and/or charge the battery that comes with the device. Another method that makes solar power possible for powering laptops is using small portable chargers which will slow down the power drain experienced by laptop batteries, thus extending the actual running time.
Charging Time is a Consideration
Use of solar power may need to take into consideration having multiple batteries for operating a laptop when in locations where a traditional electric source is not available. Most portable solar power kits can produce one-third of the necessary power to recharge a laptop battery. Therefore, it would take three hours on a solar charger to produce a fully charged laptop battery. Consumers going this route may wish to consider the purchase of a backup battery for laptop use out in the wild, for example, when on a camping trip in order to maintain continuous or extended computing use.
