Thanks for this review peeps! I’ve recently switched phones with different types of charging ports and so my old power bank (an Anker – can’t remember the model) does not work for me anymore. I’ll definitely be looking into the NOVOO or the Anker compact (love that NOVOO is rugged and suitable for outdoors, and the Anker for being really compact). Was surpsised at how light they both are in comparison to my older Anker. Technology must really be moving fast in this space. Anyway, keep up the good and nerdy work – love how thourough you are!

I bought the Anker 20000 and a Blue panel, as well s the fist full of extra cords. The big kicker is- the Big Blue does not charge the Anker 20000. It only charges from the wall according to customer service:

Dear Bill Bateman,
Thank you for your email.
PowerCore Essential 20000 PD charges via a Power Delivery wall charger such as an Apple 18W/61W/87W USB-C wall charger or Nintendo Switch wall charger, and of course Anker PD wall chargers. With a non-PD wall charger, it charges very slow. While the power supply of a solar panel is even smaller than a non-PD wall charger, what’s more, the supply is not steady. Therefore, the solar panel cannot charge the PowerCore Essential 20000 PD.
Please charge the PowerCore with a PD wall charger. If you don’t have one, I recommend the Anker 30W 2 Port Fast Charger with 18W USB C Power Adapter, Foldable PowerPort PD 2 ( Amazon ASIN: B07GWQ2GJC).
If you should have any further questions or concerns, please simply reply to this email to get our speedy hassle-free support.
