Our Analysis and Test Results
The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh offers a durable solar charger that ranked poorly in terms of its ability as a solar panel. However, the device worked well as a simple charger and the LED light added a nice touch.
Direct Solar Charging Speed
The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh did poorly in terms of its function as a solar panel, underperforming against the other panels in this review. The solar panel received 92 mAh while in direct sunlight making the Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh a mediocre choice for collecting sun. The panel should be considered for emergency use only.
Indirect Charging Speed
The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh did poorly in this regard. In total coverage, it produced 23 mAh, which means it didn't really charge. In partial coverage, it produced a mere 64 mAh. That means it barely charged in partial coverage.
The key to success with the Blavor Qi's is keeping the battery pack at least half charged. When the 10,000mAh battery has a bit of juice in it, the Blavor can maintain a charge to any device through interruptions. The same can be said for any battery pack, making them an excellent option for charging devices for short periods. Panels that do not have battery packs need more time to deliver constant charge to electronics.
Multiple Device Charging Speed
With a single USB port, the Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh only has the ability to charge one device at a time. In terms of charging multiple devices, this charger did very poorly.
Though not as brick-like as other battery-pack/solar combos, the Blavor Qi is still a bit brick-like in shape and weight. The reinforced corners make it more impact-resistant but add bulk to the panel. The flashlight feature also adds bulk that doesn't necessarily need to be there. Though it has a lot of features that add size, our recorded weight for this little panel still rings in impressively low.
The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh is a lightweight charger and isn't really designed for collecting sun but for providing backcountry charges. This charger weighs in at 9.3oz ounces and is 5.88" x 3.13" x 0.88". This panel would be significantly nicer if in addition to being small, it also collected some sun.
Should You Buy The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh?
The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh weighs in at a higher price than the other battery charger packs that we reviewed. Coupled with the fact that it can only charge one device at a time and this battery pack isn't as good of a choice as some of the other packs that we reviewed.
What Other Solar Chargers Should You Consider?
The Blavor Qi 10,000 mAh has a cool LED light and a nice small size. It's durable but does not charge fast from the sun. There are better options. In terms of battery pack style solar chargers, we liked the OEUUDD 25000mAh as it packed in more charging capability.
