Portable Power Bank Detachable Solar Panel

The average traveller carries 3-5 electronic devices that need to be charged almost daily. These handy little things will keep you on top of your charging game wherever you go.

They pack a punch with 24000mAh which is enough energy to charge multiple devices a few times each and with dual USB outlets, you’ll have your devices charged and ready to go! I've been using one of these for several years as they come in handy on long hikes when im charging cameras, phone, torche etc as well as lengthy bus rides, planes and other transportation ( a well travelled backpacker knows how handy these little guys can be).
