What’s in the Box? August 28, 2018

Tailgaters, students, and RV owners alike will love this week’s mystery product. It’s designed to give your phones and other devices the juice they need over a long, hard day. Best of all, you don’t need to plug this device into the wall. It gets its power from a much bigger source… one that’s absolutely free. It’s truly hard to tease this handy device while still keeping it shrouded in mystery. Chances are, you might already know what it is, or at least have a pretty good idea.

Find out what’s in the box!

Introducing the Olympia Solar Power 5500mAh charger. This solar power charger has two charging outputs – one for USB port, and one micro-USB port. This means you can use this device to charge a wide variety of cell phones, tablets, flashlights, two-way radios, and anything else with a USB or micro-USB connection. To power up this device, you simple expose its solar panels to the sunlight. Its power bank stores the energy delivered by the sun. On cloudy days, this portable charger can be plugged into a wall outlet to hold a charge. This makes it extremely versatile.

Speaking of versatility, this Olympia powerbank can charge two devices at once. Small devices take two to three hours to charge, while it typically takes five to six hours to fully charge most mid-size devices. The Olympia solar charger has many exciting features, which include:

  • External battery with solar panel
  • 5500mAh lithium-polymer battery
  • Dual solar charger panels
  • Built-in USB and micro-USB cables
  • Two output ports for charging other devices
  • LED battery power indicator
  • Built-in aperture for carabiner or lanyard

The Olympia charger offers USB A and micro USB cables for charging. That sounds great, though there are few if any devices that charge using USB A. One of the things that makes this device great is that it has dual charging ports. So, what do you do? Well, you could always add on a USB to micro USB adapter to the USB A port to double the charging of your micro USB devices, of which you probably own many. This is an easy, affordable upgrade to this solar power bank. With this additional adapter cord (sold separately), you can charge two devices while you’re at the game, between classes, or on the road. We highly recommend it.

Who Needs a Solar Power Battery Bank?

Earlier, we mentioned that tailgaters, students, and RV owners would like this solar power battery bank. That’s because all three of these groups use their devices for long periods of time with limited access to a power supply. Tailgaters don’t want to run out of juice during the long day of pre-game festivities. Students also need all-day power, even if they don’t always have access to a power outlet during and between classes. It’s the same thing for those living the RV life. If you own a camper or motorhome, you know just how far you take your recreational vehicle from highly populated areas.

When it comes right down to it, just about anyone with a cellphone, tablet, or similar device could benefit from this power bank. The funny thing is, tailgaters, students, and RV owners aren’t the only ones who live on-the-go lifestyles. Nearly everyone in the adult world is dashing about to and fro, trying to get more done in a day than we could ever hope to accomplish. While this power bank can’t change that – nothing short of a miracle would – it can make your life a little easier by keeping your devices powered up. That’s definitely worth something, right?
