Like every solar panel, the LEAF MINI works best when it is inclined at a 90° angle to the sun. If the solar panel is positioned in full sunlight, it will charge a smartphone within 3 to 4 hours depending on the model. Larger devices, such as drones or tablets, take about 6 to 8 hours. In cloudy weather or when the orientation towards the sun is not optimal, the charging times increase accordingly.
Of course you can also use your LEAF MINI to charge power banks in order to store the power of the sun for later use. Our power banks with a charging capacity of 10,000 mAh take about 7 to 8 hours to fully charge. That corresponds to approximately 3 to 4 full smartphone charges.
Even cold and wet weather cannot harm the robust scratch-resistant surface. That means you can use the solar charger in winter and in wet conditions.
