As I prepare for my Natchez Trace bike trip next month, I agonize over gear. Don’t worry, it’s a good kind of agonize not the bad kind; gear nerds will understand.
Right now I’m leaning towards the Mophie pack. It’s 12,000 mAh of battery. The iPhone only has 1,570 mAh of battery so that’s over 7 full charges. Plus, I’m not cycling through wilderness so I can just charge the battery and the phone when I stop at restaurants. Even if I only have access to an outlet one time during my week-long trip, I can fully recharge the Mophie.
I’m just not sure how well the solar charger would work while riding on the bike. Plus, I’ll use the battery at other things like concerts or when traveling. If I was going to a 3rd world country or traveling through wilderness with limited access to facilities, I think that would change the equation. They’re both the same price so it’s just a matter of functionality at this point.
Anyhoo, would be interested in hearing your thoughts!
