14W vs 5V 2A
Another puzzle.  As I understand it A=W/V. Why is the  output of the14W charger 5V 2A instead of 5V 2.8A ?  Thanks

The 14W is the rating of the solar panel before taking into account inefficiencies of solar charging, power conversion, power transfer etc.

On an optimum, bright day it will operate at 10W.

14W solar Charge w/ 2nd gen astro 12000
I have seen this question ask in other ways, but I am still unclear. I have the above mentioned Anker devices. In the instructions for the 2nd gen astro 12000 there a charging time chart. 5V 2A 6-7 hours, 5V 1.5A 8-9 hours, 5V 1A 11-12 hours. Does this mean that if the  Anker 14W Portable Foldable Outdoor Solar Charger is recieving less then optimum solar energy (over cast, improper angle to the sun, etc.) that it will simply take more hours to charge the Astro 12000?

Yes, that is essentially what it means.

There is an threshold that varies from device to device though. When the charge level gets below a certain point, the Astro3 will simply cease to charge or will charge with no stability. But it's difficult to determine that exact point without testing each device individually.

International Order?
I tried to order this charger from Amazon just to realize they won't ship to Hong Kong. Is there any reseller out there that would ship to Hong Kong as well? Thanks!

macbook charge?
hi will the anker 14w solar panel charge a macbook? also will it carge the anker 2nd gen astro pro 2 20000mah battery? also can the anker 14w be daisy chained for faster charging of devices?
Replies(2) Collapse Report as spam Jul 15, 2014 at 12:06 PM
I'm certain there is no facility for daisy chaining the charger. It only has USB outputs, no inputs
Reply Report as spam Jul 15, 2014 at 12:17 PM

Thanks for all the questions!

1) The max output of the solar charger is 5V/2A and this is unlikely to be powerful enough to charge the MacBook.
2) It will not charge the 2nd Gen Pro2 as the Pro2's input requirements are a touch too high (12V/2A).
3) No, you can't daisy chain the solar charger.

Solar Panels & External Battery
Will the Solar Panels charge the Anker® 2nd Gen Astro Pro2 20000mAh 4-Port Aluminum Portable External Battery Charger with 9V/12V Multi-Voltage Port and PowerIQTM

Unfortunately the power requirements of the 2nd Gen Pros is just a little too high to be able to accept a charge from our solar chargers.

The solar chargers do work very well with our other 2nd Gen Astros though as well as the E3, E4 and E5.

Greetings,why this instead or the instapack 10?

The instapack has a battery,  both the Anker and Instapack have dual output and supply 2 amps,  however the Anker has power iq which regulates the output for the desired device without the need of a battery
Reply Report as spam Jun 29, 2014 at 2:05 AM

The Anker Solar Panel has Power IQ built in. This means that it'll charge any device at optimum speed (sunlight permitting of course). With the Instapack 10 your charging will be noticeably slower with some devices.

Additionally, all our products come with an 18 month warranty, a whole 6 months longer than with Instapack.

Can it charge Anker 2nd Gen Astro ?
Hi,I read somewhere that the 20,000mah 2nd Gen Astro only accepts A/C power charging - is that true or can I use this panel to charge it, too, although it might take a long time?Best;Sebastian
Replies(1) Collapse Report as spam Jun 24, 2014 at 5:08 PM

That's right, the Pro2's charging input is 12V/2A so the solar charger won't quite have enough output to charge it.

Hello:  I purchased this item on Amazon in May.  It works fine for an Apple iPhone 6.  Today I tried it on my iPad for the first time and the iPad would not charge, the iPad had a message "the device may not be supported".  I can get further details for you customer support, but using this solar charger in the summer for my iPad was the main reason I purchased the item.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. M Valentine

This solar charger should be capable of charging an iPad but because of the iPad's high power requirements you'll need to make sure you're in good sunlight for the charger to be working at its optimum level.

Please do get in touch with our customer service guys at if you're still having problems. They'll be able to help you out further.

Best external battery for Anker 14W
Hi, I am a real noob about electronics but I may have managed to understand that to get the best charging outcome the Amperage of a solar charger must match the input one of the external battery... Is it right? I read that this solar charger has a max Amperage output of 2A and originally I thought to match it with the 12000mAh 2nd Gen Astro3, but I then discovered that the Astro3 has an input of only 1.5A... So, is it better to match the solar charger to a 2A battery? Given the same optimal sun exposure, will the Astro3 charge slower?
Replies(2) Collapse Report as spam Jun 19, 2014 at 10:18 AM

When you're using a charger to provide power to a battery, as long as the charger's output is higher than the battery's required input then it'll charge fine.

The upgraded Astro3 actually has an input of 5V/2A so the solar panel will charge it (in optimum sunlight conditions) and will also charge anything with a required input of 2A or lower. This won't cause any damage to either device.

The specifications for the 2nd Gen Astro3 says 1.5A input, where can I find the model you are talking about?What about the main question, will a 1.5A input battery charge a little slower than a 2A input (same V, W and mAh) from a 2A output solar charger?
