    Won't work

    If solar panels could charge a phone well enough for use they'd come equipped with them. I looked in to getting a similar device but read the reviews on Amazon and most will say that after a day's charge in the sun you won't get much battery. Just not effective enough (especially in Britain)

    Not a deal

    If you really wanted one, they are on sale at Amazon for $15

    The item on Amazon is fake. I wonder if this is too...

    I know I'm late....

    Two comments.

    Inexpensive Chinese batteries typically overstate their capacity by a factor of 3. This is probably not a 30 Ah battery. There's no way to know for sure of course, not without analyzing the battery. How many consumers know to do that? That's precisely what the seller is counting on!

    Next, the little built-in solar panel would take a week or more of direct sunlight to charge that battery. And even then the li-po charging method (CC/CV) is such that it may never charge it to 100%. Like ever. You are far better off getting a 15W folding solar panel, and either charging your phone directly or charging an intermediate battery and then charge the phone from that overnight (no sun). There is no substitute to surface area when it comes to solar panels.....

    30000mAh? Why all the zeros, just call it a 30Ah. That's kind of like listing prices in cents.
