I took this on an 11 day backpacking trip to New Mexico. I attached it to the top cover of my backpack so that it could charge as I hiked. I used it to charge an external battery pack during the day that charged my phone at night. This charger has plenty of surface area. I met a lot of other hikers with smaller solar chargers that complained that their chargers could not provide enough power for their phones. Not only was I able to keep my phone fully charged, but I was able to keep several of the other phones in my group charged as well.
I’ve had the Nekteck 21W Solar Charger with 2 USB Ports for about 5 months. It is well-made and folds up very conveniently. But what I’m especially impressed with is its performance. It quickly charges my iPhone in bright sun — it’s quite comparable to being plugged into a wall outlet.
Took this solar charger on a two week camping and kayaking trip and loved it! We were a group of about 20 campers and we had all bought different solar chargers so it was fun to compare whose worked best. I’ll just say people were fighting over getting to use my charger!
