Eceen portable solar charger review and tests

This is a full video review and test of my new portable USB solar panel by Eceen. It is an awesome lightweight and efficient solar charger for under $40.
Here are the results of 4 products I tested as shown in my video review with this charger to see how long it took to charge from a dead battery. 1st was my older Go Pro Hero camera battery which took 1 hour 55 min; 2nd was my Panasonic DMC-SZ7 digital camera battery which took 3 hr 50 min; 3rd was a lithium 18650 rechargeable battery which took only 2hr 20 min; 4th was a RCR123A lithium rechargeable battery which took 1hr 40 min.
Now you must realize that many factors can affect the charging rate like weather conditions, type of battery, age of battery, type of device and age as well.
I am really impressed with this charger so far. I will do a follow up review later. I hope you find this review informative!
I purchased this for only $39 on amazon here:
