Our Verdict

The Blavor Qi 10,000mAh represents another iteration of a small solar charger with a built-in battery pack. We appreciated the features that set it apart from others with a similar design, like its wireless charging port and USB-C option. It is relatively lightweight, extremely durable, and efficiently charged our devices. That said, it is not the fastest charger in the bunch, and we were a little turned off by the bulkiness of the panel, especially when compared to similar competitors. Overall, it's a decent panel with a fair price tag and provides various charging options.

Our Analysis and Test Results

A somewhat fast-charging, versatile battery pack, the Blavor is a reasonably priced model. We especially liked the wireless charging station and a USB-C port. That said, this panel didn't charge as fast as some of the more simple options we've reviewed, but it still comes out toward the top of our fleet.

Charge Interruption Recovery


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.

Charging Speed


Though not the fastest-charging battery pack in this review, the Blavor Qi works very well for a wireless charging battery pack. The solar panel is less than 5 watts, so it relies heavily on the juice stored in the battery pack. During our test period, it charged our phone 10% of the course of 15 minutes and 20% over our 30 minute test period. This is all with the wireless charging port, which impressed us, especially since we have not had the best luck with this style of charging system in the past.

Multiple Device Charging Speed


We were not blown away by this panel's multiple-device charging abilities. It seems like the wireless charging station requires quite a lot of battery power, which takes away from the Blavor's ability to deliver a charge through the USB ports. When charging one device wirelessly and one through a port, this panel could only charge each device a little bit. The wirelessly charged phone increased its battery level by 7%, while the phone plugged into the USB port charged 11% during our test period.

Durability


The Blavor has a burly little battery pack with reinforced corners for added drop protection, plus protective covers for the USB and USB-C ports. We had no problems with this panel during our testing period.

This burly little panel even comes with two flashlights on the side.

Weight and Portability


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 adds 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 weighs 8.3 ounces, placing it on the low end of the spectrum.

Value


For its charging capabilities, multiple charging options, and wireless port that works very well, the Blavor Qi is a product of good value. We would recommend this option to anyone who wants to have a backup for charging phones and small electronics.

Conclusion


A versatile and compact option, the Blavor Qi is a good choice for folks wanting to have a backup to keep small gadgets topped off. The battery pack works best when partially charged, so relying entirely on solar may not be the best option with this setup. However, relying on solar with also do the trip. As with any battery pack, it performs best when at least half-charged to start with. Our favorite aspects of this product are the wireless charging station and the fact that it has both a USB and USB-C port.
