    Hey everyone! Due to popular demand, I made a simple playlist of all "knock-off / scam" episodes of Krazy Ken's Tech Talk. Enjoy! More to come: P.S. at 7:52… I was being facetious about calling myself an "influencer." Don't hate me. I feel like some people didn't pick up on that. 😅

    @1:27 when a battery company can’t even describe a battery’s capacity correctly (20k mA) while displaying it correctly with text overlay (20k mAh) was a clear sign they don’t know what they are talking about. i.e. 20k mA = rate, 20k mAh = capacity.

    Actually I ordered 2 of these about a year ago. They both arrived. They both work. They hold a charge for a long time. The light is bright. The solar recharge works although I can't verify how long it takes because I usually leave them where they can get sunlight and recharge / stay charged. I have the latest iPhone and it does charge wirelessly by laying it on the LED light surface. Slowly but it does appear to take a charge. I have never actually used them as a power bank. I wanted them as a portable solar LED light. The quality seems as good or better than similar products. Overall I have no complaints. In fact I didn't know they were a scam until I was trying to go to their website and my browser said "unsafe". Then I started seeing all of this stuff about the company including this video. I was going to contact them and ask if they made a unit that you could vary the color temperature of the LED light output say from 3,200 kelvin to 6,000 kelvin. So I was obviously satisfied with the two units I received. I guess I got lucky this time.

    I ordered one of these a long time ago, and received it. It worked well enough, I never really put it through its paces. But just recently the thing has swelled up like it's exploding inside. The solar panels are swollen out and the front light panel is swollen out. I guess the batteries must be crap. Just went on Amazon, other brands are selling this exact unit, just slapped a different brand name on it but otherwise everything is identical, same graphics, labels, etc, only whitelabeled. Just more Chinese knockoff re-packaged crap.

    Solar charging is generally very slow even in ideal sun conditions. Back in 2003 I was in the Spanish mountains in the summer for 4 months and used as solar charger to recharge my phone batteries. While it worked it would in no way be suitable to high battery usage modern mobile devices. P.S. solar charging technology has not changed since 2003.

    I like how they say a 20k mAH batter can be charged with a dinky solar panel will charge the product. (or was it charge the phone in 60 min?) People never find the time to even do the math anymore. My physics teacher would be so disappointed. Nevermind. The solar panel is to power the "flashlight" and as a "backup" .:P (from amazon) Full disclaimer: The solar panel charger is intended to power the LED flashlight. Although the solar battery bank will charge via the solar panel, that is not its primary intent. It will take 84 hours of direct sunlight to reach the max conversion rate.

    Just another dropship scammer. They find a cheap product on Alibaba, copy all the pictures, and make their own ads to post to Facebook. They charge 3-10 times the price listed on Alibaba. They even put a fake "Limited Time Sale!" to encourage panic buying. Of course the product is never not on sale. When they get an order, they just turn around and place an order themselves on Alibaba with shipping set to deliver the item directly to the customer. They just pocket the cash difference. That is if they bother to have a product sent to the customer at all. You see these ads all over social media. These guys never have any actual product or inventory of their own, they just take advantage of the fact that the average Facebook buyer won't know to check elsewhere for pricing.

It's supposed to be a hydroponic vertical plant pot but PlantR was clearly just a brown cylinder with plants glued to it in the ad. I'd be very surprised if anyone actually bought it. Fun thing, I went to their website to make sure I had the name right and it looks just like Lit Mobile's website. Seems like there's just a scam store-front software they're all using.

    I personally ordered one of their portable chargers a little over a year ago and never thought anything of the product or company. I paid, I received it, I've taken it camping, I've taken it to Disneyland, and it's been nothing but solid since day one. Not sure what all the complaints are for unless people are purchasing them indirectly but I've enjoyed using it as long as I've owned it. Especially considering it only costed me $40.

    yes. it will charge in 6-8 hours on solar IF YOU GET THREE of the extra panels and daisy chain them :-) that built in panel? more like 30-40 hours for a full charge. if your lucky 3 panels 15w is 120wh in 10 hours the battery holds 74wh's so its "feasible" sure as heck NOT on that built in panel though. probably a 2 or 3 watt panel on their and that's being optimistic. 25 hours and that's assuming its 3w an assuming you get perfect sunlight. I Have quite a few of these (not from lit) and they do work just not nearly as "dreamy" as advertised or with quid pro quo's $100 is WAY to expensive though ! I have a dozen of these and NONE of them cost that much. Proper price for this is round $30 right now you can get a 26,800mah 4 output USB C with QC3 dual led's solar panels and wireless QI charging for $37 with 10% coupon on amazon right now. and that is superior specs! $100 is a rip off and probably a drop ship of something someone else is already making. I would be interested in finding the original though being able to daisy chain solar panels together is a cool feature!

Or it could be a drop shipper who just got in way over their heads about what they were actually doing when this product came out drop shipping to make money was all the rage then. Can't find any company information to who actually owns Lit Mobile and they cut off allowing comments on their Instagram guessing because all the hate they were getting.
