All the solder points are on the back of the cell, which makes the connections very easy. The price per watt of these cells is higher than some. The time saved is HUGE! That alone, might be worth the purchase price. There is no need to solder tabs on the front of the cells. I am not a paid spokesperson, but I gladly would be.

    eBay is awash with these solar mobile power banks, most claiming way more storage capacity than is genuinely inside - this one has just 4,800mAh of LiPos. The unit only charges properly in full sun - in low light it wastes all the energy it receives by burning it up in 4 blue LEDs that seem to stay on continuously. The physical construction is dreadful - everything inside is held together with sticky tape and foam pads. Even the circuitry on the PCB is nothing special. It's a waste of money - don't buy it.

We just decommissioned our huge, trusty, 650 pound Lead Acid battery bank that powered our off-grid showroom, and replaced it with a lithium bank. Made with 4 CALB CA180FI, 3.2 Volt, 180 AH Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) cells http://www.lightharvestsolar.com/catalog/item/8735074/10310342.htm, Wired in series, it makes a "12 Volt" battery which weighs about 55 pounds. Absolutely incredible performance, particularly with regard to discharge rate (360 Amps for the CA180FI, which seems to be about 6 times better than AGM batteries. That's the magic with these, such a high discharge rate allows us to power bigger loads with a much smaller, lighter, battery, plus get a lifespan 4-5 times longer. ...

http://amzn.to/1Gac7Ti I am a Techy by nature! I saw this Suaoki 20W Solar Battery Charger, and I knew that I had to review it. This piece is all about quality, efficiency, and functionality. The Solar Charger is fold-able, and lightweight which is great for hiking, camping, and general travel. The Solar charger is very well made, and the craftsmanship can be seen throughout the product, starting with the stitching. Yes, I started with the stitching.. I am always testing products for quality, and any time I come across loose stitching I think to myself about the lack of care that went into such products.. The Mono-crystalline solar panel Triple fold design, allows for a high conversion of up to 25%. - Solarfactsandadvice(.)(com) states "PV panels made from monocrystalline solar cells are able to convert the highest amount of solar energy into electricity of any type of flat solar panel." - with that said, looks to be a good way to start. The 6 built-in loops make it easily attach-able to a backpack, or strung up rope to get it safely off the ground and/or at an angle directed to the sun. There is a Magnetic flip fold that keeps everything together when it is in a closed position, and a large pocket in the back that can easily hold most phones, power-banks, and smaller tablets. Quick note: The on the materal it is a heavy-duty polyester canvas, and the panels have a plastic on them, that allow them to be water resistant (not waterproof- Do not submerse). Inside this zipper pocket is also the (2) charging ports that have an intelligent chip (TIRC) which actually detects your devices and charges at the maximum speed that your device can handle, without damaging your battery. My test revealed very positive data, and I will include the results in my video. Some things to note- you will experience more draw from an uncharged device versus a charged one that is just topping off, which will be more of a trickle charge. Direct sunlight will give you the best results, but I was able to sit under a tree in my front yard (in the Shade/ indirect light) and my device would show that it was charging. My meter would show that it was not supplying the full capable charge, but I think this would still trickle charge the device. Also in video.. Here is a Diagram showing 3 positions relating to the angles and sun. How are you going to get the most out of this device? Imagine these typed images are the sun (O) and the Panels 1. Best 2. Good 3. Not so Good O O O / - - - / / / / / 1. Facing the sun at an angle is the best 2.

Having said it's an eye catcher, I must be clear that's a metaphor, as the solar panel is pretty discrete and blends into the rubbery sides of the unit nicely. There are 2 USB ports, one for 1.0amps and the second for 2.4amps (so one smartphone and one tablet, that could be an iPad. There's also a microUSB port for charging the battery itself, and a light attached. That combination, along with the 12000mah capacity, makes this a good choice for your battery in your emergency kit for the home or the car. Anyway, I tried out the solar panel by putting it in the sun for a couple of days. Provided the clouds didn't get in the way and I adjusted it every so often to have a direct view of the sun, the battery increased from three indicators to four some time on the second day. A test with my LG G4 showed it was charging like a champ, so full marks there. Overall, this is a very handy external battery with the ability to boost itself back up from the sun if you need it to. Pros: * Rubberized, rugged outer * Two charging ports * Built in light * Can recharged from microUSB (cable included, and this is the suggested primary method) * Effective solar panel to keep you topped up Cons: * None I was given a sample in exchange for an honest opinion

Lightharvest Solar has officially entered the age of LITHIUM, and we're never going back. We just decommissioned our huge, trusty, 650 pound Lead Acid battery bank that powered our off-grid showroom, and replaced it with a lithium bank. Made with 4 CALB CA180FI, 3.2 Volt, 180 AH Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) cells http://www.lightharvestsolar.com/catalog/item/8735074/10310342.htm, Wired in series, it makes a "12 Volt" battery which weighs about 55 pounds. Absolutely incredible performance, particularly with regard to discharge rate (360 Amps for the CA180FI, which seems to be about 6 times better than AGM batteries. That's the magic with these, such a high discharge rate allows us to power bigger loads with a much smaller, lighter, battery, plus get a lifespan 4-5 times longer. The significance of this, with regard to off-grid power systems, cannot be understated. There are other enormous advntages, the biggest being that they are very light so if you are in a RV, you now can enjoy many of life's electrically powered pleasures that were impossible before, think microwave, coffee pot, toaster, hair dryer, hot plate, etc.. If you have the solar panels to recharge it, even air conditioning should be possible. This is going to be big, very big! -PLEASE NOTE THIS PACK DOES NOT HAVE A BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, DO NOT DO THIS! We are doing a test and monitoring the cells closely for an out of balance condition. ALWAYS USE A BMS.

Still a little rough, but it works. Getting new wheels, seats and paint soon. Goes about 10 MPH on level ground in full sun. 4 ea Sunpower 230s and a Crystalyte 4013 hub motor on the left front wheel. Started with a Rhoades Bike 4 seater.
