The Goal Zero Flip 20 is a fantastic choice for those who are looking for portable power banks. It may not be the most durable of all solar power banks, but it is certainly the most convenient. It has a creative design that allows it to fit in your pocket or purse, and it’s the perfect bank for charging your smartphones or cameras. This model also charges faster than most of the power banks we have seen. Take a look at our Goal Zero Flip 20 Review to get a better idea of what it’s all about.
The Flip 20 is compatible with anything that can be charged with a standard USB cable. Its strength lies with smaller devices like smartphones and cameras because it will fully charge those (it can charge a smart phone twice with one recharge). This does not mean, however, that it won’t give your other devices a boost. This small piece of equipment can give tablets a 50% charging boost.
Durability is not this model’s strongest feature. While it may be able to take a fall or two, that’s not its intended purpose. It should be carefully handled. If you decide to keep it in your pocket, try putting it in your front pocket rather than your back pocket – this will help you avoid sitting on it. If you put it in your purse, try keeping it wrapped in a cloth or a case. It is not weatherproof or waterproof.
Easy Of Use
One of the best things about this Flip 20 is how easy it is to use. It has a flip-out USB, so when you want to charge it with electricity, all you need to do is plug it straight into your wall adaptor. There are no cables required when taking this on-the-go, and there are also no buttons to complicate things. When it is fully charged, it will activate just by being plugged into your device. Nothing else is needed.
Aside from its best feature, portability, this unit has quite a few features that make it powerful and attractive. The design is unique, the colors are delightful, and we love the flip-out feature. Charging and low-battery protection are built-in, so there will never be surprises or unwanted shortages. You’ll also be able to tell when your battery is low so that you can charge it. And of course, one of the best features is that it is solar-friendly.
This is a tiny unit that is designed to fit in discreet spaces. The upper and lower part of the unit are coated in a modern silver finish, and the middle is the matte color of your choice.
What We Like
Our favorite thing about the Goal Zero Flip 20 is its design. The small size does not take away from the large amount of power it provides for your devices. Its ability to charge a smartphone up to two times and give a tablet a 50% boost is extraordinary given its size.
