Here it is, folks. Compact - the size of a largish mobile phone, lightweight, built in solar charging and .... wait for it .... 300,000mAh. Yes, 300 amp hours!!

All for $19.85 Link

And if that's not good enough, you can have 900 amp-hours for a mere 10 bucks more. Link

In the age of outlandish claims for solar and battery performance, isn't it refreshing to see an honest eBay seller. And isn't modern technology wonderful.

Clearly I've been shopping in the wrong places.

Methinks it'd take a while to charge with a 2W solar panel .......

The seller states
"About solar function:
- The sun will charge this charger to 100% but due to current technology and limited size of the solar panels and the Solar Insolation in your area, it could take over 30 days for a full 0-100% charge with sun."

Hi Frank,

Are you sure you are reading that correctly? Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought a mAmp was a millionth of an amp. Therefore isn’t 900,000 mAmps less than 1 AmpHr?

Hi Macca.
No, a mA is 1000th of an amp. A micro-amp is 1 millionth of an amp.
Therefore their claimed capacity of 300,000 mAH equates to 300 A/H!
Very unlikely - or maybe for 1 microsecond!
Good old eBay! Definitely to be tempered with reason.

This marketing practice of using milliamps to describe values of more than 1 Amp annoys me to the point of being incensed.
Even major companies are doing it. I have a Cteck charger branded 15000. It is a 15A charger dammit.

Next they will be offering stuff as nAh. One billionth! Until they run out of label room with the noughts.

Cheers

Frank.
That power slot in the end also doubles as a recharge facility and is really for replacing the Uranium fuel rod when spent. Whoo Hoo, Modular reactors for the masses.

So bored, Allan that I opted for some retail therapy and bought this more modestly specced item.

RMD,
I chose the 4 x 120 watt solar panels over the quite risky bonus uranium fuel rods. LOL

G'day Frank
No, No, the uranium is safe as, I just saw a reporter walking around in side Chernobyl wreck site so it has to be safe. He just had civvies and a Covid facemask on, so he was safe. Not sure if he glows in the dark now, because there was no nightime shots of him.

Bought 20 to put into a sun frame to make the most powerful compact battery/charger the world will ever see. Just need to work out how to wire them all up together. Got in before the Muskrat whose quest for pieces of ethereal coins appears to have distracted him from this wonder of the world.

When complete it will be my most precious purchase, displacing my Brock special Energy Polariser (which is still polarising after all these years) and hiclone from their long-held number one and two spots.

If linked to the Brock Polarizer it will definitely make the Hiclone spin. You will of course have to stop frequently to drain the all fuel saved into a jerry can.

Sounds like my brother's old 186 HR hyramatic Holden.
It had so many fuel-saving devices fitted I figured it generated 5 gallons of petrol every 100 miles.

When we took all of them off, including the Hi-clone under the carby it actually went better and more economically on the wallet.

It gets even better if you look hard enough.

You can have 10,000,000 mAh, yes, 10,000Ah sitting in the palm of your hand for under 20 bucks!

Bazooka, you can't let this pass. You're going to have to rethink your sunframe and update all your cabling.

Literally fantastic Frank, less than half the size as well. The lack of solar charging is a tad disappointing although 6+ months charging time would be a slight drawback.

Luckily I haven't started building the frame for the (now pathetic) solar version yet. I'll wait a few weeks. By then I should be able to get at least 20,000Ah in something the size of a matchbox, albeit minus the HUGE benefit of 20x2W solar charging.

It looks like one we bought a few years ago - the point is not to try to run a fridge or anything like that - for us it's to have an "last resort" power source for a phone (or satphone) if all else fails. It does work for this.
