    Wanting a decent solar USB powerbanks/charger

    I'm wanting to keep an eye on our chicken coop at night and have a Pi with motioneye installed and some IR lights. I'd like to make it sort-of self sufficient so thought I could hook up a solar panel to trickle charge and mains charge if it ever needs a boost (its the UK, I'm not expecting much sun)

    Looking at ebay the results are all ridiculous 75billion mah packs so clearly the quality is going to be awful.

    Are there any half decent ones anyone can recommend ?
    Would need to power a pi zero + cam + 2 IR Leds (I can't seem to find how much power that'd be but I think the Pi is ~100mah and the Leds are 3W each)

    Cheers,

    Rob

    I have a charger that can handle up to 8 iPhone charges without plugging in, search Amazon and you'll find tons of them, they cost around 30 dollars. :Telefone:
