Eton The products on display at CES are surrounded by solar energy, which figure this solar back-up power supply is believed to be the most opportunity to use a the reserve this solar power named BoostSolar, it has a5,000 mAh battery in 10 hours by solar cell completely filled, or via the microUSB charging for it, the time is probably about seven hours (which is a little long, it!) Middle can open what is it?
The sinking is the battery where it is equipped with two microUSB plug adapter for charging the phone or tablet, and LED lights on the battery power, so you can better view the rest of the power how much. Its whole power with solar panels take up to IPX 4 protection levels, you can eliminate the harmful effects of splashing water droplets from a different direction. Fengyun power in our hands, feeling pretty good, and its rugged design will bring along a good choice when camping, they are also plans to offer with two 5,000 mAh suit, so that the battery can do a charge friends can go camping or love to drive attention.
