1. Fix the defect on the back battery plate with screws and cracking plastic.Its supposed to be rugged.
2. Make it a Regular USB Port on the item
3. Better Implementation on the usb rubber cover.
4. Maybe add an input port and a Output port
5. 2.1 Amp output change to the 1.0a out
6. Better cables that dont die or stop working.
I will be posting a video review on this items soon.
Looks very good, easy to hang it on your backpack and with that steel hole on the side, I can easily secure it to a fixed item with a steel cable and leave it outdoors until I need it.
I own a few of the china made solar charger cheapo and not of them really charges efficiently. It hold a good size battery bank, charges up my phone fast. The best thing is this solar joos has legs to enable you to prop them to catch the sunlight! Save me finding rocks or branches to prop it up! (there is nothing to prop up the goal zero guide 10/Normad 7!)
When you read other reviews of it being a essential item during a zombie apocalypse, being able to kill a panther with it, it is true! I leave it in my car in sunny Singapore, it get so hot to touch, but after cooling down, it is still working. I leave it in the rain because i forgot to keep them, it works after. I become so dependent on it that I feel uneasy without having a solar joos.
Actually this was my second Solar Joos, the first one actually died when it fell 6 stories down. I was securing it with a steel cable and it slipped out of my hands. When I went downstairs to pick it up, I was expecting smashed bits and pieces of Solar joo, amazingly all was intact. The solar panel did not even have hairline cracks! I found some cracks on the black part of the body and buffs on the white plastic. Otherwise not much physical damage. I was hoping it would work but sadly it did not.
I tested it the next day and it would do a slow red blinking and could not hold a charge even if you charge it with a wall socket.
I dont know what I can do with it now. So I am just leaving it around the house.
The software to check the charge is a good and at the very least it give me a number to know how much % of the battery I charge that day! I also own a goal zero guide 10 with Nomad 7 solar. With the guide 10 battery pack ,there is no way to know how much it is charge except by a green blink ( 80- full), orange blink ( low), red(empty). I feel more assured bringing the solar joos out when I know it hold 92% battery then with a guide 10 pack holding green light.
Both are very unique in their own way, and I like them both! I do not have to worry if it is raining on the joos but if it rains, i better keep my Goal Zero because of the guide 10 in exposed to rain. Goal Zero is light and easy to carry around.
I once connected the Joos to a portable battery pack hoping the Joos would charge it. I get a soft whine and the battery pack no longer works. Only way for a joos to charge AA battery would be via a USB AA battery charger but I cant find them in pack of 4. Charge them 2 at a time would be a waste of time. Something the Goal Zero can do easily.
If you can decide between both, be like me! Own both of them and get 1 to charge your phones and one to charge you rechargeable AA batteries!
