How to be energy efficient and keep electronics charged when hiking - SUAOKI 25W 3 years test and Review


Watch the full video here: 

This video is a review of our foldable solar panel Suaoki 25W and us sharing some tips on how we keep all of our electronics charged while hiking and backpacking in the wilderness. We are going to talk about the technical specs of it, its features, how efficient and resistant it really is, and overall how we use it and our thoughts about it after 3 years of an active use.

How you keep your electronics charged and what kind of solar panel you use?

I don't really trust solar charging in the Pacific Northwest.  We get a lot of good summer weather but it's never reliable, there's often a thin cloud layer, and now we get a month of choking smoke most years.   frown.gif

I just bring a small battery pack if I might need to charge something by USB.  I have 2 headlamps and 1 hand held flashlight, all of them chosen for runtime on a bright setting.  All can take a battery change on the trail.  Phone and GPS watch will last two days out of I'm frugal with them.

This is just a spam account.  An "influencer".  Nothing to do with the PNW.  They likely got their product comped from the manufacturer.

Sure, the efficiency of a solar charger will depend a lot on where you are travelling in the world. To us, is it an indispensable piece of gear to take as we have a lot of electronics. And this solar panel is a quality piece and covers our needs.

This solar changer is a boat anchor, weighs in at 1.65 pounds (750g).  Same weight as my tent.

Typical 10,000mAH battery banks are under 7 ounces.

Most smartphones batteries are around 3,000mAH;, thus a simple 7 once battery bank can recharge your cell phone 3 times. Plenty to cover any section hike.
