Outdoor enthusiasts and business professionals are more likely to purchase solar power banks, but that doesn’t mean anyone else can’t get one. Let’s get something clear before proceeding: solar power banks and solar chargers perform quite the same function, but are a bit different. With solar power banks, you get to charge it in the sun, conserve the energy and use it to charge your device at a much later time. Some solar power banks also support usage while charging. However, solar chargers are like chargers, they can only use solar energy as a source of power while being charged in the sun. The good thing about solar power banks and chargers is that most of them can be charged with both electricity (using a USB) and solar (using a solar panel). In this article, we review 5 of the best solar power banks you could ever find. So, if you’re looking for a power bank for that excursion, camping, hiking, or business trip, then this article is for you!
