Why no Intl. Shipping?
I have yet to use mine, and have it stored away for some future trip or disaster prep. Anyone who really knows batteries have recommendations for proper long-term storage? Do the batteries need to be charged on occasion?
Also, once it has been used the first time, does that change anything as far as requiring a certain charge level to be maintained?
Why no postage to Australia ????????????
i love the idea and i continue to love massdrop, but the 20W is a few bucks cheaper with amazon prime.

I was just looking at Amazon, and theirs is for the panels ONLY for $99. I don’t have prime so I’m just going off regular price. It looks better here.

FireMike good point and i stand corrected. this is a pretty good deal after all.
"Hey why no international shipping" etc etc. Come on folks, lose the powerbank and throw your international customers a bone.
This is the Third time I have seen this item on Massdrop. Every time including this time the largest solar charger is sold out by the time I see it. If each time you post this drop you run out of the 20W units maybe you should arrange for more of those or just have a drop for the 20W units.

Thank you MD for listing this again so soon. I was able to get the 20W option this time. For those who missed out, hang in there! Maybe MD will list it again not too far out.
Somehow i doubt it would charge enough to make anyone a happy camper, especially hiker. A gimmick to me unless someone can prove otherwise.
Ok so I've read some older comments and I'm going to summarize my question as this: 14W with 1 quick charge battery or 20W with 2 quick charge batteries, all with pass through charging and in a nifty designed case that is the solar panels. Is this really worth the money for the complete package? It seems so to me but I'm still new to this type of innovation. I'm slowly but surely moving into rechargeable batteries and I am meeting a solar power company rep in 2 days to see if I can afford to get into solar powered energy (despite Nev. Energy having a nasty monopoly on energy here in Vegas). I have a charger I bought from IKEA that's just under 11,000mah but it's slooooow (I expected it but didnt realize just how slow since it's been some time since I used a battery to charge a device)). The IKEA battery was around $15 and I figure it's good enough to power up a device overnight (namely my son's ipad) or as a real emergency need BUT I have wanted to upgrade my older solar panel battery kit which is probably circa 2014 and I haven't even used it yet; it's an emergency use situation. LOL...So what is the consensus on this drop or at the very least, the company and items? Thanks!

I recall some saying they got a bad panel pk so I would hope a decent warranty remedies that situation. All of them have the same output more or less but it does seem the 14 and 20W versions harnesses more light which should translate to more efficient/rapid charging. It is somewhat ambiguous that the 14W is rated to charge their 10k mah battery in and around 5hrs but the 20W says "2 batteries" around 5 hours. Can’t be sure of that because 6W differemcee doesn’t seem like a lot to have 1 panel charge 2 batteries in the same time that a 14W panel does for 1 battery. I bet you can charge a battery and device at the same time efficiently if you want to go that route. Still, if you get a good panel, MD seems like a sweet price compared to Amazon and more so from the manufacturer‘s sight. I want to get in on this but current budget needs are slapping me straight. Ugh...

Keep in mind that the 20 watt panels are a little bigger than the panels of the 14 watt models. I’m not an engineer, but it may help charge the second power cell in the same amount of time as the 14 watt model.
Funny thing is, they do have an option for just the panel, just it's the 5W related to the base price. However, it's a bit misleading that the title of the drop says ..."Charger + Powerbank" with a base price of $29.99 but the base item doesn't include a charger.
NOT AGAIN MASSDROP!!! Please add option to choose only the solar panel (without battery) next time.
just wanna make a suggestion in the next drop... there should be an option to choose the solar panel only (without the battery) so that all members here on any country can join this drop
The 20w is $170 on Amazon and only $95 through this drop. Seems to good to be true, what am I missing here?

If you look at just the panel, the Amazon price for 14W is cheaper. 14W on Amazon is $64.95, 20W is $99.95.
Can't ship to the philippines? what's d reason?

I can only surmise that is the manufacturer not the distributor that determines what is for sale. Hence, MD is only allowed to offer what is available because Sunjack doesn’t want to sale the panels (14w,20w) by themselves. In my personal research, I have read it is better to use the panels charge a battery and then use the battery to charge the device. This way heat (iPhone in the sun) or intermittent sunlight doesn’t become a problem. I am curious on what more seasoned users/askers of the panels w/o the battery bank have in mind for powering their electronics.

i understand what you mean but they should allow the panel only so it can be ship worldwide. almost all of us have the powerbank already don't you my friend?
