ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh Backup Power SourceI’ve been meaning to write a review on this ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh battery pack, but just never got around to it. Until today!

I picked-one of these up a few months ago, and it’s proven to be a reliable backup power source during our “outings.”

We do a LOT of camping, usually in pretty remote desert or mountain spots that are almost completely off-the-grid. WiFi doesn’t exist, but we can usually get a decent LTE signal (especially at the higher altitudes). So our challenge has always been more about power than connectivity.

Because our adventures have us outdoors for extended periods, I liked that this battery pack is waterproof (don’t have to worry about leaving it out in the rain), and the 20000mAh it packs is more than enough to completely charge all of our devices several times.

The solar panel on top is nice (it will recharge itself in the sun), but I’ve found that to be sort-of “iffy” as a feature. It’s just not enough surface area to provide a meaningful charge to the device in a reasonable amount of time. But, as an emergency, “Just in case it’s a last-resort,” I guess it’s good to know that it’s there.

Before we leave the house, we charge this baby up (which isn’t trivial – A full charge can take up-to 24-hours), and off we go. It’s worked reliably during several long weekends, and it’s now in our “essentials” pack every time we head out for a long weekend.

The ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh Battery Pack Doesn’t Come Cheap

20000mAh Solar Charger, ZeroLemon SolarJuice We got ours during a promotion, but the regular price is $90 over on Amazon.

Still, if you you spend long periods in the wilderness, and don’t want to run out of juice prematurely, it’s a handy gadget!

In my experience, ZeroLemon makes some pretty solid stuff, and so far, this is no exception.
