External solar batteries have appeared on the market relatively recently, although the demand for them is quite large. Why, you ask? Imagine that you have to go camping and you have a “regular” external battery. You charged Power Bank, but it was only enough to keep the smartphone in operation only a few days. And since the nearest outlet is several tens of kilometers away, you have to forget about the smartphone. If you use Solar Power Bank (solar battery), you can always recharge it from solar energy, and he, in turn, will charge your smartphone. Conveniently? Still would!
