Power Output

The solar panel on the Black Hills Solar Backpack delivers 6V/120mA maximum output. The battery output is 3.7V/800mA. This output is dependant on light and weather conditions. Sunlight will obviously delivers the best performance but the panel we use also charges in any type of light, even artifical light. The charge delivered to the internal battery is a continuous trickle charge and the charge delivered to a device from the battery is constant until the device is fully charged or until the battery has used up it's energy storage capacity.*Results may vary dependant on make, model and age of handset.

These figures are based on controlled testing in British summertime. Best results are achieved through direct sunlight, however, if the bag is in continuous daylight the trickle charge will be maintained allowing the majority of the power employed to be constantly replaced.

Please note: The Black Hills Solar Backpack device will not produce enough power to charge a laptop or similar device.
