**less cycles if always using solar panel charge, more if charged using micro USB AC Charging
Can the PowerBank charge my device while it's charging? YES, but only at the rate of input (aka normal rate when charging via AC, slower rate when charging via solar only)
Can the PowerBank charge more than just my phone? YES - tablets, go pro, you name it.
How long does it take to charge the PowerBank via the solar panel? 72 Hours to a FULL charge (variable based on directness of sunlight), and only 12-15 hours for enough power to re-charge your mobile. This means if you rely strictly on solar, you could charge the battery during the day, and have plenty of battery to charge your mobile at night.
About how long would it take to charge my mobile phone? Around 3 hours, depending on the capacity of you mobile device.
What's the difference between the 10000mAh max capacity, and the 8000mAh avg capacity? 10,000mAh is the absolute maximum amount the battery can possibly store - because of many variable conditions, the battery will avg. a full charge of 8000mAh.
If I leave my battery fully charged, but don't use it, how fast will it lose charge? In roughly 2-3 months, if left totally unused, the battery will lose 20% of its stored power.
