Aukey 21W Dual Port Solar Charger for Smartphones: Unboxing and Quick Review

Are you an adventurer who can't leave gadgets at home when going off-grid to hike, surf, or camp?

Do you always end up draining your powerbanks when you go out of town and you are always forced to drive back home without being connected through your smartphone?


Well, here's an amazing accessory that you might want to invest in.

Currently priced at only PHP 3,200 at Power Central Philippines, Aukey 21W Solar Charger is a handy tool for techie Pinoys who live extreme!

Simply put, it's a highly portable solar charger that's small to fit and hang on your backpack while you're mountaineering or walking along the beach, turning the sun's limitless power as juice for your mobile devices -- so you won't have to sacrifice connectivity every time you go off the road.

The official retail package includes three solar charger panels neatly lined inside a splash-proof canvas case, four hooks for attaching the product to your bag, and the user manual.

Pulling apart the velcro tape, which closes the pouch on the right end of the case, reveals the two USB output ports for charging mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, and even fitness trackers.

You can also put your smartphone or smartwatch inside this pouch while you're charging it. Just make sure you keep your eye on the product since the container is not completely sealed.

With good sunlight, both ports can deliver 2A output, which translates to relatively fast charging for most handsets these days.

They also support AI charging, which automatically adjusts the output to what your device is capable of receiving to avoid damages.

The case also incorporates two thin planks or stands for the solar panels. You can use these to lay down the charger and make it face the sunlight for faster charging.

So how long does it take to charge a smartphone using this product? Well, as you might have guessed, it all depends on the intensity of sunlight. I've tried charging my Samsung Galaxy Note8's 3,300 mAh battery pack using it and it took more or less two hours to go from 0 to 100% -- and it was a pretty sunny day.

Is it worth getting? Frankly, nothing beats an electrical outlet or powerbank when it comes to swiftly charging mobile devices. However, there are certain scenarios wherein an accessory like this would be a god-send -- such as when you're going off-grid or if there's brownout. This is a bit out there -- but if you're a "prepper", I think you should definitely get this. After all, so many devices these days can be powered via USB port.

I believe the company is currently offering a PHP 200 discount for the Aukey 21W Solar Charger, bringing its price down to just PHP 2,999 -- so you might want to take advantage of that offer.
