11SC28W EasyAcc portable solar charger – Full Review

The EasyAcc 11SC28W has four individual 7W solar panels that fold up neatly for storage. Measuring 280 x 160mm and about an inch thick when closed. Its size and shape makes it extremely easy to pack for outdoor trips.

When unfolded, the unit opens up to an impressive 820 x 160mm. As well as the four solar panels, there’s also a zipped up storage pocket.

Inside is a charging hub featuring a total of four USB charging ports.  There are two 2.4A Smart ports and two regular 1A outputs.

The EasyAcc 11SC28W is constructed from a thick canvas material which has a protective plastic inner surface.  The build quality is great, all the stitching is clean and the Velcro feels robust. There are four large eyelets riveted onto the body. These allow you to easily hang the device using the included carabiners or cordage.

I was particularly pleased by the amount of available space inside the storage pocket. It’s big enough to comfortably fit a couple of smartphones or external power banks.

With a total maximum output of 4A, the EasyAcc 11SC28W could potentially charge 4 phones or two tablets simultaneously. This, of course, is subject to the intensity of the sun. Nevertheless,it’s way more efficient than most other portable solar panels currently offer.

After testing this device over the last week I’ve been highly impressed with its performance, especially in low light conditions.

As it’s currently April and I’m based in the UK, the weather has been fairly poor for the purpose of testing its optimal performance. Other solar charging units I have tested in limited light have offered barely more than a trickle charge. In contrast, I was able to successfully charge my phone and an external power bank at the same time. I’ll have to wait for the summer months to know its full potential. If I’m able to charge my iPad and phone together I will be more than satisfied.

The weatherproof carry case included with the EasyAcc portable solar chargerThe EasyAcc 11SC28W portable solar charger comes with a good quality weatherproof carry bag, ideal for backpacking. It’s foldable design offers the best performance with the smallest footprint when packed. I can highly recommend this device to anyone looking for an effective and sustainable off-grid charging method – Weather permitting or course.
