Quality portable folding solar chargers sold direct via Amazon. Four models available, two models evaluated. Powerbanks also available (not evaluated).

Unlike the reviewer who gave this product a single-star, I found this product to be good and consistent with my expectations. It is essentially 6oz of cooked ground beef sealed in a vaccuum-package for long shelf life with no refrigeration.

Sizes: Three sizes that I know of that it comes in are: 17" x 13", 27" x 17" and the XL @ 29" x… Full review
