I may not be much of a camping person especially not in the woods like some people i know but i do like spending much time on the beach and on the mountain so to avoid any unpleasant circumstances i always like to carry a portable battery pack along with me (actually i have two one in my backpack and one in the car just in case) but the bad thing with such devices is that you need to recharge them every now and then to ensure that they have some battery juice left in them in case you need it. Luckily manufactures came up with a somewhat brilliant solution to that issue and so there are currently quite a few portable battery pack models in the market that also feature a solar panel at the top which can be recharged by using the energy from the sun if the battery happens to be empty. Sandberg has been manufacturing interesting gadgets for quite some time now and since they just launched their very first 6000mAh solar PowerBank we decided to check it out.
Sandberg stands for quality and user-friendliness. If it is important for you that accessories are high quality and easy to figure out how to use, then choose Sandberg. Our ideology "IT is for everybody" is part of everything we do. Since its inception in 1985, private consumers, institutions and companies have benefited from this simple philosophy. Distributors and dealers appreciate the availability, range, simple procedures and the exceptionally low failure rate. Every year over half a million Sandberg products find their way to users in more than 30 countries. Choosing Sandberg means choosing a safe and conscientious product that meets all applicable regulatory requirements. A product manufactured by subcontractors who are committed to following Sandberg's Code of Conduct to ensure decent working conditions and reduce the environmental impact of the production and waste disposal.
Under the hood of the Solar PowerBank 6000mAh Sandberg has placed an Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery which should be just enough to recharge a regular smartphone roughly 3 full times and a tablet just slightly over once thanks to the 2100 mA output (depends of course on the capacity of the batteries used in both the smartphone and the tablet). Of course a capacity of 6000mAh nowadays may not seem quite enough to some people but we also need to take into consideration the size of the unit since this particular one was designed to accompany you outdoors and as you will see later on although the solar panel needs to be somewhat large to gather as much power as possible from the sun still it's quite compact. Whether or not however the solar panel works as advertised and the capacity of the battery is sufficient enough is something which we have to find out for ourselves.
