For those that use them, what solar charger/powerbanks are you using? Any good or bad experiences with them?
I just received my first "nice" solar charger. Looking at the box, I was a little surprised to read this on the box:
"The less you use the solar panel to recharge the battery, the longer the battery will last"
Looking online I found:
"RoamProofs product's battery life will decrease when the solar panel is used to recharge the device's battery. Extend the life of any internal battery by charging through a wall adapter using provided charging cables."
Is this the norm?
If you're interested in seeing specs and my photos of the unit I'm talking about, you can see them here:

Hiking long distance always moving during the day I don't a lot of time to layout a solar panel. I have hung the Anker 21w on my pack while moving.
I think just using a battery pack and power management is better
