FAQ & Trouble Shooting 1. What if the Apollo Mini fails to charge? Please check whether the adapter connection is secure or not. If the adapter does not function normally, please replace it or use your original one. 2. I connected my phone to the Apollo Mini, but seems no output, why? Please long press the power button around 3 seconds to turn on the charger, then it'll charge your device. 3. My Apollo Mini stops working after several times use, why? Improper use may activate the protection system, which makes your Apollo Mini stop working. Please turn off the Apollo Mini and give it a full charge.
Warm Tips 1. Fully recharge your Apollo Mini before first use to activate the battery. 2. Use the included cable, your original cable or a third-party certified one. 3. To charge the battery in sunshine ,please kindly make sure there is still at least 25% power inside since the charger will volatilize power like alcohol while charging via sunshine. 4. The best time to charge in sunshine is from 10:00 am to 16:00 pm since the sunshine is the strongest during this period. 5. Please make sure the panel get direct sunshine while it was being charged.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Let me start off by saying: This isn't solar powered??
Or maybe it is. It's really hard to tell because there's no indication of it being charged while on solar. However if did give me a good 4 hours charge before no longer having a charge. There's also no way to activate the flashlight and the instructions are very sparse.
I wouldn't really recommend this but if you're in a pinch, it at least makes a good portable battery.
UPDATE: After being contacted by their customer support, I finally got the flashlight to work by pressing the power button for one long press. Same to turn off.
The solar charge finally worked one day while I was on the bus in mostly stationary traffic with super bright direct light. But doesn't seem to work if you're walking.
The instructions are still pretty sparse.
Been using it for a week or so without a problem, trying to charge it with JUST solar power can take a long time so use that for emergencies only. A couple of hours under the direct californian sun could only restore about 1-10% which depending on your device may be enough to make a call.
PROS - Plastic case feels sturdy and could take some falls w/o damage. - Based on the tests I made, I may get 2 full charges (Probably just one and a half) if the phone is not used whilst charging. - Carbiner included, yeah, it is not THAT important but it is a neat add-on if you are using it to hike or PokemonGoing or you can also use it to attach the bank to your jeans' belt loops as it is quite heavy for pocket carrying. - Emergency Led lamp thingy... well, it is nothing really spectacular about it but I found it useful a couple of times.
CONS - Larger and heavier than most phones, probably because of the cells and the internal batteries. -...
Great portable charger for the price. Easy to carry, charges my iPhone just like when it's plugged in. Got 2, because: Pokemon Go happened. I've only used it once in solar charge mode but it charged my phone so guess it works too :)
