Has some features we like

from The Wirecutter

Unfortunately the panels don’t perform nearly as efficiently as our pick. In our tests, it barely collected power in partly cloudy conditions, which is a dealbreaker – though it did charge relatively quickly in full sunlight.

Affordable and priced fairly, given its power and versatility

from GadgeTell

I’d say this solar panel is sufficient to keep the music going all day and night. If you’re expecting the BoostSolar to charge your gadgets while hiking (or have complained about it not doing so), I recommend brushing up on the science behind solar energy. It’ll temper your expectations and help you get the most out of any solar panel you use....

As long as you understand how to maximize use with the Etón Boost Solar, you will find it affordable and priced fairly, given its power and versatility. As for the quirks – the higher battery efficiencies are a boon, though you’ll infrequently have to accept charging at a snail’s pace.
