Unboxing Photos: RoamProof SOS20K Portable Solar Powerbank & Package

posted in: Gear Reviews | 0

I haven’t used this unit much yet, but since I’ve seen lots of questions regarding solar chargers and powerbanks lately, I wanted to get some information and photos posted.

The RoamProof SOS20K Portable Solar Powerbank & Package includes:

  • SOS20K Solar Charger
    • 20,000 mAh
    • IP67 Dust and water proof rating (dust tight and waterproof up to 1 meter and 30 minutes of immersion)
    • 3-in-1 LED with SOS signaling
  • 50Kn Steel Carabiner
  • 4 Braided Nylon, Aluminum Cased USB Charging/Date Cables (2 Lightening, 2 micro-usb)
  • 1 Waterproof Cable Case
  • 30-Day Money Back Guarantee and Limited 2 Year Manufacturers Warranty

First Impressions:

  • Seems like a well-made, heavy duty unit that will stand up to abuse.
  • The unit is heavy at 17+ oz, but if the 20,000 mAh rating is accurate, I believe the weight is worth it. I typically carry a Delorme, camera, phone and light that all need to be charged with a powerbank. 20,000 mAH should last me 2 weeks based on my useage.
  •  The carabiner could be useful in a survival or prepper situation, but it is on the heavy side (6+ oz). I think most backpackers will want a lightweight option for for attaching the unit to a pack.
  • The unit did not include operation instructions. I had to find them online. These should be included.
