Review: QuadraPro Wireless Solar Power Bank from Survival Frog
Hello, my friend and welcome back! My friends over at Survival Frog, have asked me to do a review on their QuadraPro Wireless Solar Power Bank. Now, I own a few of these types of devices and have never really been impressed with them, but this one has proven to be different. Now grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.

When I first received it, the battery was completely discharged. I’m not sure if they come like that or if it was just the one, I received. In any case, I tried using the solar charger to charge it, but with limited sunlight due to winter weather, it looked like it would take a while. I then used the USB cable which came with it to bring it up to a full charge using my desktop computer to charge it. It only took four and a half hours to reach a full charge which is far better than the 8 to 12 hours that I’m used to with others of this type.
One of the features that it has that many do not have is the ability to charge devices wirelessly. I have a Samsung Note 9 phone which can be charged wirelessly and decided to give it a try. Let me add that my phone tends to be a little picky when it comes to charging it this way. Much to my surprise, however, it began charging immediately and completed charging in just two hours. Now that’s impressive! Next, after having a few days of more sun, I hung the solar charger in a window of my office for a few hours and was again surprised to find it was fully charged again. It also has USB ports which allow you to charge other devices as well.
It comes with loops which will allow you to hang it from the back of your pack while hiking or camping that makes it really convenient. Add to that the attached magnets which will allow you to stick it to any Farris metal and you have a really handy portable power source that you can take anywhere. It’s also water resistant and has a built-in flashlight, which makes it ideal for outdoor use. The flashlight is very powerful, and you shouldn’t look at it when you turn it on. I love this little power source and it is going straight in my Bugout bag as soon as I finish writing this post.
I give the QuadraPro Solar Power Bank 5 out of 5 stars because it works as described and I can’t think of anything they could have added to that would have made it any better.
Well, that’s it for this review and I honestly hope you will get you one for your Bugout bag as well. They are not that expensive, and you can get one here. Until next time my friend, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
