Villain Multi USB Charging Station Organizer For Multiple Devices – 4 Built-in USB Ports – Fast & Safe Charging, Smart IC – Ideal Charging Dock for Apple, Samsung, Sony PSP Controllers And More..

Use: Purchased this so I had a small charging station for work.. I wanted it to charge my phone, my tablet, and maybe anyone else’s phone that needed charged.

Short Review: great charger with a lot of attention to detail.. I have purchased a few chargers of this style from various companies, but the attention to detail from Villain is great! Charger works well and charges all my devices fine!

Pros
1.) Soft Top Surface – the top surface (part the phone lays on) is soft to the touch and slip resistant.. This protects your device from sliding out and keeps the charger from scratching your device. This is what I mean by great attention to detail

2.) LED Lights – when the device is charging on a channel, the device lights up blue.. not a bright blue but a blue that doesn’t keep you awake at night.. a low light led just so you know it’s working

3.) Packed and packaged very well – all clear parts were shipped with a plastic coating to protect from scratches

4.) Charges very quickly!

5.) Easy to assemble

6.) Long power cord

Tested with
1.) Huawei Mate 9
2.) Nexus 6P
3.) iPad
4.) iPhone
5.) Kindle Fire HDX

Charged all those devices quickly and safely!

Overall great charger! I highly recommend it. It’s built very well and very durable!

Bluetooth Speakers, A Pair of VAVA VOOM 22 True Wireless Speakers (60W Hi-Fi Sound, Home Theater System, Bass EQ, 3.5mm Compatibility, Built-In Controls, Charger Port for Phones)

Short Review: A great pair of bluetooth speakers that are powerful enough and loud enough to replace a soundbar!! Setup is easy, they are connected to each other wirelessly, AND you can use them as individual speakrs! Keep in mind, the PAIR of these are 60Ws but each speaker is only 30W/each.. Nothing major but something to keep in mind if you plan on using them individually.. WIth USB output, it makes it very easy to charge devices right from the speaker

Pros
1.) Wonderful Sound Quality – Vava does a GREAT job building their speakers and making sure they sound great.. I have always been impressed with their sound quality, and these speakers are the same! Impressive sound quality

2.) Lound & Powerful – These are strong enough and loud enough to replace a soundbar or other basic home theater speaker system

3.) 100% wireless – These can be 100% wireless BUT you will need to charge them.. I have mine plugged into USB power though, so they never need to be charged

4.) Can be used as individual speakers

5.) Beautiful Design – They look AMAZING in my home and will in yours! They don’t look like a crappy speaker system.. They look and feel very premium

6.) Includes a USB output to charge other devices!! I have used the USB output to charge Nintendo Switch controllers, Steam controllers and to even power my Fire TV stick (FIre TV stick was sluggish though but charged and worked).. Much easier than digging behind the TV to find a place to plug up a USB cable!!

7.) Wonderful Bass! – The EQ button adds extra bass!

8.) Excellent battery life

9.) VAVA and their other brands is a great company and have AMAZING customer service! They stand behind their products and are there to help every step of the way

10.) Control your devices from the speaker!

Overall: This is an amazing little system that can do A LOT!! Its priced fairly and the quality is excellent!

Goal Zero Sherpa 100 Recharger

Short Review: Excellent DEVICE, especially with the inverter (Sold separately so grab it as well)..  Simply one of the best power banks on the market! This will charge my Huawei Mate 9 over 10 times from the USB ports.. It will charge my 2 DJI Spark batteries at least once each using the inverter, it will charge my Surface Pro 4 fully at least once!!  There is a lot of power in this!

Tips:  You can’t think of this as a powerbank with the typical mAH ratings we see all over Amazon.. You need to know how Watt Hours work and know that this is nearly a 100WH device!!  (Meaning it can power 100 watts for about 1 hour)

Tips 2: If you are trying to power a coffee pot, this WONT WORK.. Go for a Goal Zero Yeti 400 or higher.. You need more power for those!!

Tips 3: If you just plan on charging your cell phone while waiting on a bus, grab a cheap power bank and not this.. Save money.. THIS IS FOR OUTDOOR USE or people who need more power than your cheapo battery brick will offer.. 

Pros
1.) Can be carried on a plane
2.) Lithium (meaning it holds its charge for months)
3.) Includes laptop cables and more are available from Goal Zero
4.) Buy the inverter and this thing can produce 100 WATTS of power!!
5.) Small, easy to carry
6.) Uses are ENDLESS – Laptops, Drone Batteries, Cell Phones, Lights, pretty much anything
7.) Quality is outstanding
8.) Can be chained (linked) with other Sherpas for even more power
9.) Easy to charge VIA Goal Zero solar panels (Remember solar panels can convert energy but you need a way to store it.. This works VERY WELL)
10.) 98WH (Basically this means that this device can provide about 100 watts of power for 1 hour!)

Overall: This thing rocks!  It works well and is very high quality!

Solar Charger RAVPower 24W Solar Panel with Triple USB Ports Waterproof Foldable for Smartphones Tablets and Camping Travel

Short Review: Wonderful Solar CHARGER that will quickly charge 3 devices at once.. I quickly charged 3 battery banks with this charger today and within a few hours all where 100% charged.. One of the battery banks is a Goal Zero Venture 30 which is a 7800mAH battery bank. Another is the Griffin Outdoor 10,000mAH battery bank and the smaller one is just an inexpensive 2500mAH bank.. On a sunny day in TN, this charger had no issues fully charging all the banks AT THE SAME TIME in under 5 hours.

Tips: Before I get into the rest of the review, let me share a few “Solar” “Tips” with you
1.) While you can charge your devices such as phones and tablets from the solar panel itself, I recommend charging power storage devices like I did in the photos.. Two reasons for this.. Depending on external factors, this charger might not always offer enough power to charge your high usage device.. And second, its not good for your phones to stay in the sun all day

2.) Remember, weather (Even on sunny days), time of day, location, and other factors will affect output wattage.. I always recommend that a buyer only expect a charger to charge with ON AVERAGE half its capacity.. So with this charger, I expect it to average 12 watts on good days. I have received as much as 18 watts from this charger but it does only average 12 watts but that is standard!

Pros:
1.) Very HIGH output! – I average at least 12 watts out of this charger but have hit as many as 18 watts.. This is fine and is actually EXCELLENT from a charger of this size! Don’t expect 24Ws all the time, it will never happen even with $1,000 chargers

2.) Wonderful BUILD Quality

3.) 3 USB ports – Most of these chargers on the market only have 2 ports

4.) RACPower offers excellent support

5.) The pouch that houses the USB ports seems to be waterproof – It has a DWP coating on the inside!! Excellent

6.) Simple to use

Overall: Great charger!! I love it and highly recommend it!

GOAL ZERO NOMAD 100 Solar Panel

I really enjoy this panel! Very durable and wonderful output

Example: One day I was cleaning my panel inside.. I noticed the “power light” was on.. I measured it’s output and I was receiving 13 Watts inside my apartment from the sun shining through the windows! Outside on a good day I average about 45 – 50watts and it has peaked at 62 Watts.

Tips: Remember, a 100watt solar panel will probably never hit 100watts! Atmosphere, weather conditions, time of day, and even the length of your cord all affect the output of a panel.. a good panel, you can expect about 50% of it’s output on average.

Pros
1.) Durable!
2.) Works well with Goal Zero Yetis
3.) Excellent Output
4.) Long cable (about 6ft)
5.) Extension Cables available (keep in mind, the Goal Zero brand cables lose about 1% output per ft)

Cons
1.) Price – However, I own several 80 – 100 Watt panels and the Goal Zero is built better than any of them! Plus, it is full of technology and great American support.. A lot of my other panels have Chinese support and while there is nothing wrong with that, I simply can’t pick up a phone and call.. With Goal Zero you can

Overall: Great Panel, I highly recommend it

Tips
1.) This is designed to charge battery generators or other power packs.. Works much better if you do! I can charge my Yeti 150 fully in about 4 hours with this

Tenergy TN438 16-Bay Auto-detect AA/AAA NIMH/NICD LCD Built-in IC protection Smart Intelligent Battery Charger With AC Wall Adapter And Car Adapter

Short Review: Awesome battery charger that works much better than the “Freebies” or the chargers that come with batteries BUT there could be a few improvements in the next version. I haven’t ran into any of the errors others mention but I also use fairly high quality batteries and I take CARE of my batteries. My charger has also been through several cycles now and still works without any issues

First lets talk about improvements.. I am fine with most of the charger, it charges quickly yet slowly (Meaning it doesn’t take all day to charge but also charges at a fairly safe rate to increase the overall life of your battery).. My biggest issue and suggested improvement is trickle charging.. Some say it isn’t needed BUT I use rechargeable for most everything.. What a lot of folks don’t realize is that as soon as you take a rechargeable off the charger it starts draining, even if not being used.. Trickle charging would allow the charger to keep the battery fully charged and waiting for your next use!! My second issue is that there is no way to turn off the backlight.. Such a simple feature should be added.. The backlight makes these impossible to use in a bedroom or something so allow us to turn it off.. My 3rd and final suggestion for improvement is to list the charge rating of each battery! This would allow me to see if I have a “Weak” battery that isn’t charging correctly..

Pros
1.) Safe charging rate – I own a charger which I LOVED for years.. BUT it was a quick charger.. I noticed my batteries didn’t really last long! I was only getting about a year out of each battery not hundreds of cycles.. I finally learned a little about the technology and learned that the quick charger was burning up the batteries! This charger charges slower than most but it charges at a safe rate! But it charges quick enough not to take all day

2.) Large Capacity – 16 batteries! GREAT

3.) Individual channels – Why is this important?? Most store chargers charge in pairs! When it comes to rechargeable batteries, your weakest link is your weakest battery!! I try to keep my batteries organized by “Singles”, “Doubles”, “Sets” so that each device has a battery that has the same amount of charge cycles. I don’t want to charge those “Singles” as a pair!! So individual charging channels are great and help make sure every battery receives their highest possible charge

4.) Refresh – WHAT?? Why would I drain my battery?? Have you ever had a set of batteries that didn’t seem to be working right or holding a long charge? Refreshing that battery (Draining it FULLY and charging it fully) will help revive the battery!! It works wonders!! Problem is, most chargers don’t offer this feature!

5.) Durable construction

6.) 12V car charging option or generator charging option

7.) Can be purchased with or without batteries

8.) Tenergy batteries are actually fairly good batteries!

Tested with and charges the following brands (It should charge any brand)

1.) Eneloop (Awesome batteries)
2.) Amazon Basics (My NUMBER 1 favorite rechargeable battery due to their quality and price)
3.) Sony (Decent batteries but not great)
4.) Goal Zero (House branded solar charger batteries, usually made by eneloop or something)
5.) Tenergy (Decent value batteries! Not the best but fairly good and not the worse! these are my recommended “Budget” brand aside from Amazon Basics which is my #1 recommend brand all together)

Cons
1.) Backlight cant be turned off
2.) No Trickle Charge
3.) No quick charge option (I wouldn’t use this option but I know it will be missing for some)
4.) Limited instructions

Overall: For the price, this is a 5 star product!! I wasn’t expecting a charger with the best features for under $40 but this actually comes very close!! The charger works well, is very safe and should protect your batteries.. Tenergy should just add one or 2 basic and simple features and they will have a homerun here!! I do recommend this product

Tips
1.) keep your batteries organized.. Your weakest link is your weakest battery! What does that mean? If you have a device that uses 4 batteries and you use 3 new batteries and 1 old battery with 100 cycles, that old battery will determine your battery life!! I keep my batteries organized and all on the same cycle!

MixMart 24000mAh Power Bank with 3-USB Ports & 1-AC Outlet for All Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones

Use: I grabbed this to use with my Microsoft Surface on the go! USB powerbanks don’t offer enough power to really charge the surface!!

Short Review: Excellent CHARGER and it last for a very very long time if just charging from the USB ports. When you turn on the AC outlet, it does drain the external battery VERY quickly but did offer enough power to charge my surface fully over 1 time WHILE I was using it!! To me, this is excellent performance! Final note, you can use the AC outlet and USB ports at the same time and provide powerful charging to multiple devices!!

Pros
1.) Very Durable – This is a large device so I have accidently dropped it a few times but no issues!
2.) AC Outlet – This is the best part of this power bank! The AC Outlet can be used on several devices (See list of my test below).. Depending on the device, it might drain this power bank fairly quickly however.. My surface can drain it from 100% to empty in right over one full charge (while the surface is being used).. To help you visualize this a little better. the Surface batter is UNDER 5500mAH and this battery bank offers 24000mAH in power
3.) TRUE 24000mAH battery – when using the USB ports, this battery does seem to be a full 24000mAH.. It charged my phone over 6 times with no issues on a single charge.. My phone has a 3500mAH battery .. 3500mAH X 6 Charges = 21,000mAH and after 6 charges I have power left so it will probably charge it fully one more time if I needed it to
4.) Rubber Finish – Being a larger device and semi heavy, this grip is very welcome
5.) 3 USB ports
6.) Emergency Light
7.) Can charge my Surface and Mobile phone at the same time
8.) Can charge multiple devices QUICKLY at the same time

Tested AC Outlet with
1.) Microsoft Surface – 1 full charge while being used
2.) Desk Lap – Powered for 5 hours and still had power left! The lamp was however using an LED bulb
3.) Cell Phone Charger – Tested just for the heck of it.. The battery drains much quicker using the Cell Phone Charger vs a USB port but it does work.. Id recommend USB port for charging tablets and phones
4.) Paper Shredder – Using it for business I tested with a paper shredder and it worked wonderfully all day!!
5.) Computer (With power strip) – I tested with the computer and monitor only (Didn’t want to overload it) and received about 25 minutes!! This is about average for smaller APC units.. I would say this is very impressive!

Tested USB ports with
1.) Nexus 6P – 6 full charges and power left
2.) IPhone 6 – 6 full charges and power left
3.) Kindle Fire HDX – 4 full charges but plenty of power for MORE full charges
4.) Generic Android Phone (With small battery) – 8 full charges and plenty of power left
5.) Nintendo 3DS – Plenty of power left after several charges
6.) GoPro, Yi Action Cams, and YI M1 Cameras – Charged all with no issues

Cons
1.) Size – This isn’t huge but it is much larger than a standard 24000mAH power bank! I really hope over the years, companies can make these smaller because they work wonderfully well!!

Basically, it should work fine with ANY USB device that allows charging over USB.. It should work with MOST AC Outlet devices as well!!

Overall: Simply impressive device!! One I would recommend to anyone! For my use, it works GREAT..
