I’ve reviewed a lot of portable power banks or portable batteries and most are the same, but some are different like the one I today which is solar powered, or it can be powered by the sun. There are many of these out there and this one works just like all the others. The Treqkr50 is a 5000mAh power bank with a secondary solar panel built-in so in an emergency you can power your phone by the sun. It works fine, read on to learn more…
Specifications and Features
-BUILT-IN 5000mAh Lithium Polymer battery. This portable charger can be charged either via a USB connection ( for example from a computer) or via the built in solar panel. The powerful 1.5A output charges your devices at high speed. The built-in electronics prevent overcharging and ensure reliable operation. The Treqkr50 solar phone charger will handle more than 1000 recharge cycles over the life of the battery.
-ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: The solar charger uses the power of the sun to recharge itself – wherever and whenever there is enough sunlight to generate electricity. The limited surface area of the solar panel means it is comparatively slow to recharge itself via solar power alone. No need to keep worrying about your phone’s battery levels!
-ELEGANT, LUXURIOUS, compact and portable design; A handy companion for your everyday power needs – where you need it and whenever you need it! Precisely engineered with a smooth metal exterior for durability and stylish looks.
-UNIVERSAL USB allows easy connection with either the supplied adapters (Iphone 4, Micro USB, Mini USB and Nokia) or with the cable that came with your device.
The Treqkr50 is an advanced power bank that allows you to live your life with more freedom. Never worry again about running out of power for your devices – Treqkr50, once charged, gives you that peace of mind.
The powerful 5000 mAh lithium polymer battery holds enough energy to fully charge even the most power hungry devices. This solar phone charger will recognize your device and charge it at the most appropriate speed.
The USB connection standard provides wide compatibility with most devices on the market today, such as tablets, phones and MP3 players. Your Treqkr50 solar power bank will charge an IPhone from empty in about 2 hours and have power left for the next device.
This premium quality solar cell phone charger is lightweight and easy to use, which makes it easy to carry around and is an excellent companion for your day to day activities.

Versatility and adaptability
Never run out of power again during the school run, when work takes you away from the office or when travelling. This portable charger will bring your phone or tablet back to life and lets you stay in touch with family, friends and customers.
Reduce your electricity bills – charge the solar battery pack via the USB connection when electricity is cheaper and use it to recharge your phone or tablet during the peak times. Note that the solar panel feature of the solar charger is designed for emergency use. This is because of the limited size of the solar panel. Please ensure there is plentiful and direct sunlight available to make the most of this feature. We recommend charging your Treqkr50 charger using electricity.
Travelling overseas? No problem. 110v or 220v does not matter, the Treqkr50 solar battery charger works with both.

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then continue on:
The packaging for the Treqkr50 solar charger is a clear plastic box actually with lots of info on the back about the charger. Inside you’ll find a clear plastic tray that holds everything in place during shipment.
Once you get everything unpacked you’ll find the charger, user guide and a bag of tips and a USB cable.
The adapters included are for Apple, microUSB, miniUSB and Nokia and the tips fit the included USB cable. You don’t have to use the included cable as the charger has a standard USB port on it.
It’s a solar charger so most of the top is a solar panel and it looks like most any other I’ve seen.
On the bottom of the charger is an ID label and labels for the ports on the side.
On the bottom edge you’ll find the microUSB port for charging the battery itself from your computer or AC USB adapter. There are four LEDs that light up blue to let you know the battery level, 25% each, next to them is a small button to power it on and check the battery levels. To the far right is a standard USB port that use to charge your stuff with.
For testing I charged my phone, the Samsung Galaxy S6, outside, but the solar charger isn’t made for actually charging from the sun. That’s normal though, none of the solar chargers I’ve gotten are made for that, they’re made for emergency use solar charging. You can very slowly charge the battery from the sun, but you should just charge it fully from your computer before going out.
The LEDs on the charger do light up to let you know it’s charging from the sun and blink as they are charging and then get full when complete.
The Trekqr50 solar charger works just as I expected it would. I’ve reviewed similar ones before and they all work the same.
The 5000mAh battery inside is more than enough to keep you charged, but it depends on your phone of course as to how many chargers you can get from it.
The Treqkr50 is made for outdoor use but I don’t see anything in the specs about it being weatherproof or very rugged. I’m not sure how it would do outside if you take it camping or hiking. I guess you could keep it in your bag and only take it out as needed, but I don’t know.
The charger is solar powered but you can’t actually really use it that way, it’s made more for emergency use and for that I guess it’s fine.
All in all it’s not a bad product, it’s fairly inexpensive and the battery inside should provide enough power for most devices out there when you need it.
+Small and portable
+Seems well made
-Solar is slow and only for emergencies
