Portable solar panel and power bank compatibility
I learned the hard way that not all portable solar panels will charge all power banks. (Hard way *not* when the power was out! It was a failed test run of the solar panel and a particular power station... I learned!)
I am looking to buy my daughter a RavPower solar panel & power bank. I have their 4-panel portable panel (24W) + their 32,000mAh bank (121.6Wh), and as a component of all the other stuff I have to run stuff, it has its place and I like it very much. But it's too much for what my daughter needs, both in terms of $$ and size. So I'm looking at this [USB C Portable Charger 20100mAh PD 3.0 45W Power Bank. I am not allowed to post links yet, sorry!] + this [Ravpower 16W Dual USB Solar Panel].
The folks at RavPower have been pretty helpful. They offered three suggestions for the power bank, given what sort of phone she has (Google Pixel 2).
But I could use independent confirmation that this combination will work-- and maybe a bit of explanation as to why or why not.
Daughter lives Downest Carolina and is a veteran of hurricanes and power outages, but she's also cash-strapped. We all know what the weather is like after a hurricane-- bright and sunny! She needs just enough juice to keep her phone and a rechargeable lantern going.
