The Aqua Trek + waterproof camping phone charger, is twice the size, capacity and weight of the standard Aqua Trek.  Once charged will retain its capacity for months, ready for when needed, as part of a survival kit or a reassuring back up charger for boats, festivals and camping. We have also left one in the water for 1 month, flashing an SOS, it still works. Our Aqua Trek Power Banks have been up Kilimanjaro, Everest base, across the Atlantic and supplied to the military.
