The best power bank for hiking

Hiking and taking pictures or using maps usually takes a lot of power. If you are catching Pokémons at the same time your battery will be drained very very quick. With this power bank you can re-charge your phone for an eternity. Just attach the power bank to your backpack and let the sun recharge it while you charge your phone at the same time.
