Anyone with a power hungry gadget, let alone a bag bursting with them, can tell you how much energy it takes to keep a modern arsenal of gadgets up and running. Read on as we review the Waka Waka, a combination battery pack and solar charger that ensures you’ll have ample and free power wherever you roam.

I gotta say... I'm rather turned off by the fact that the store page doesn't list any specs about it.
"a solar panel 200% more efficient" yet they don't list how much power it actually produces? or even how much power the battery holds...?
Nice review but its almost as if they went out of their way to make this thing sound as sketchy as possible, especially with its high price, when you can easily buy a 6,000mah battery ($20) and a small solar panel ($10 - $20) separately for half its price.

The main page is rather flashy, but the tech specs are included if you go to the individual product pages. The specs for unit we reviewed, including data on the solar panel itself, are available here: https://us.waka-waka.com/store/catalogue/wakawaka-power_17/

ok fair enough, I was mostly referring to the amazon store page though, I just shouldn't have to go out of my way to look for what is pretty much basic information about a product, you know... any important details as such really should be there too, its just a tad annoying and also feels like they were trying to hide something when companies don't just list that information up front.
