BlitzWolf BW-L1 20W/3A Portable Solar Charger

The BlitzWolf BW-L1 is a foldable, portable solar charger which is able to charge all phone models and portable lithium ion battery packs with 21.5% – 23.5% efficiency (as compared with the ~15% most portable solar panels offer). It’s a quality mobile phone solar charger with SunPower panels at a very reasonable price. Let’s take a look at some more specs and information about the charger!

BlitzWolf BW-L1 Portable Solar Battery Charger

The charger comes with three solar panels which hold 20W of power at a total maximum output of 5 volts / 3 amps (via two USB 2.0 connectors – so you don’t have to fight with your friend over who gets the charge). Give its foldability, low weight, and the eye holes installed in the corner, it’s perfect for attaching to your backpack as you’re out camping or hiking – usually the problem with something like this is the charger doesn’t automatically restart charging when the sun fades – requiring you to pull the cords out to reboot it. Very frustrating if you’re hiking through trees or on a cloudy day!
