With our fixation on cell phones, iPads, android pads and sport cameras, it is not uncommon to find ourselves running out of power after hours of surfacing and forgetting to do our daily chores. Well, EnerPlex, a division of Ascent Solar Technologies Inc., has some options to keep those electronic addictions going and going.
From portable solar charger to larger solar chargers, solar backpacks, portable batteries to solar and battery phone cases, EnerPlex has your recharge needs met. I had the great pleasure of reviewing the EnerPlex Jumper 10400.

With 10,400 mAh of portable power, this lil jumper packs a big charge. I was able to charge my iPhone and iPad in less than an hour with power to spare. I have also used it to recharge my Note 4 and still had power left to use. Then to top it off, if I am in a low light situation, there is a small LED light on it. This light is not for finding your way through the woods, but does supply enough light to see plugging devices in and the general area around the battery.
The small battery is 3.5” L X 3” W and weighs very little. It has 2 USB charging ports and a mini USB for plugging into your computer to recharge it. If your device is totally dead, I would say it could be recharged within a couple of hours. Remember this battery has quite a lot of power to give and will require a bit to recharge.
Durability seems to be good. I have dropped it from 6 feet with no issues and thrown it around the house without the light going out.
My goal is to use it this season for powering my UltraProX camera and I’ll possibly see how it does powering a fish finder as well. Or I just may need it to recharge the ol’ cell phone. Either way, I know I will have enough power to do what I need.
Overall, I have had no issues with it. Charging and recharging is simple. The unit fits anywhere and is light enough to throw in a backpack or fishing bag. It’s a great battery for any outdoor activity. If I had to pick something I would change – well, I can’t!
