Instapark 10 Watt Solar Panel Portable Solar Charger with Dual USB Ports for iPhone, iPad & all other USB Compatible Devices

Converting virtually unlimited supply of solar power to much needed battery juice for your mobile devices such as an iPhone, iPad and many, many more USB portable devices while you are on the go or there is a power outage or disaster strikes, the Instapark Mercury 10 is a light and compact USB solar charging system that easily fits in your purse, messenger bag or backpack. It combines three solar panels totaling 10 watts and folds up into a pack about the same size as a hardcover book, but only thinner and lighter.

How to choose the best charger and cable for your smartphone

1) Choose the correct charger:

This is simpler. Each charger comes with a label or inscription informing the current in amperes ( A or mAh ) and the voltage in volts (V) .
The voltage should always be 5V and the current must be at least 2A or 2000mAh . Below these values, generally, will be little for any current appliance. The maximum is usually 3A or 4A .

2) Cable selection (USB, MicroUSB, etc)

It does not look like it, but this task is just as important as choosing the charger. And it’s usually a lot more complicated than it sounds. First, because the difference between a quality cable and an inefficient cable is not always “visible”. Second, store sellers (virtually everyone) can not tell which cable is the best, and therefore end up making only brand recommendations or assumptions.

Tips for increasing the battery life of your phone

In addition to these acimas tips that will not diminish the usefulness of your device, there are others that are a little more aggressive but that allow an even greater battery saving.

  • Switch off the device when you can not use it: in cinemas, flights, meetings or times when you can not use your device, leave it unplugged. If you get calls or messages during this time, you will know the text messages from your service provider when you switch the phone on again.
  • Turn off the phone where there is no signal: In cities in the interior where there is no signal, the phone basically transmits at higher power to try to find an antenna. If there is no signal, turn off the phone and save battery power.
  • Turn on airplane mode if you do not need to receive or make calls: often you need to work on the phone but do not need external connections. Turn on airplane mode right now and your battery will last longer.
  • Say no to multimedia features: playing, listening to music, watching movies, and various other fun items on the phone spend a lot of battery power. If you can not charge the phone, avoid draining the battery with this too!
