It is already difficult to imagine our life without various electronic gadgets of mobile phones, smartphones, tablets, cameras and so on, which are with you on any trip, including nature. All these devices constantly require charging their batteries, and in the absence of a 220 Volt network, this issue is most easily solved with the help of compact external Power bank chargers, such as Soshine E4.
Power bank and Soshine E4 charger on 18650 batteries, two in one, overview.
Power bank Soshine E4 is a device in which very common and rather popular 18650 batteries are used as an energy storage device.
The advantages of this type of Power bank over devices with a built-in and non-removable battery of a certain capacity are obvious:
When using Power bank with a fixed capacity of the built-in battery, you rely only on this capacity, then you need time to restore it again.
In the case of Soshine E4, you can independently determine the capacity of the batteries that can be placed in this Power bank.
You can pre-charge for example 5-6 18650 batteries and change them as needed.
At any time, 18650 batteries can be removed and used separately in any other device, such as a flashlight..
Soshine E4 can be used as a charger for 18650 batteries.
Power bank Soshine E4 is able not only to give a charge to external devices as a drive, but at the same time can serve as a charger for one or two 18650 batteries, which works from a USB port or using an adapter from a 220V household network.

Work Soshine E4 as an energy bank Power bank, charge external devices.
Soshine has two separate channels, so you can use either one or two 18650 batteries as a power source for charging external device batteries, which is more than convenient from a practical point of view. You can charge two gadgets at the same time, they are charged from two USB output ports: the first port is 5 V 1000 mA, the second 5 V 2000 mA. You can use the microUSB-USB cable included in the kit, or any other, for example miniUSB-USB.
The entire charging process is displayed on the Soshine E4 LCD, separately for each channel. The display shows the output voltage and charge current channel by channel. The end of the battery charge of the external device is determined by the indication on its display.
Charge 18650 batteries with Power bank Soshine E4.
In Soshine E4, you can charge both one and two 18650 batteries. Charging is carried out using the microUSB-USB cable from the kit. The microUSB output of the wire is inserted into the output on the side of the Soshine, and the USB output to an external source.
The charging process and the state of the 18650 batteries are displayed on the same display by channel. The charge takes place automatically and upon its completion the Soshine controller will disconnect the corresponding channel. In addition, the built-in controller protects the 18650 batteries from overcharging and overheating, preventing damage to them..
Input voltage: DC 5.0 V 1000 mA, output for charging 18650 batteries: 2.8 V, 500 mA. The 18650 batteries can be charged via Soshine E4 from any external source that has a standard USB port, for example, through adapters from a 220 Volt household network or a 12 Volt car on-board network, or in the field from any compatible solar battery with a USB output.
