TouchArcade Deals Product Comparison - Battery Packs

So I'm looking at these two products, but I'm trying to figure out the pros and cons.

1) https://deals.toucharcade.com/sales/...k-w-flashlight

2) https://deals.toucharcade.com/sales/...solar-powering

So they are both very similarly priced (the second is $5 more), but the first one has 10k additional mAh. Both are solar powered, and both have flash lights (I don't really care about the flash light).

Anyone have any ideas why the second one is more expensive? Anything stand out as warning signs that should steer me away from the first one? All unstated things being equal, the first one seems superior.

Thanks for any help!

Check out the amazon reviews. Generally gets very high reviews there. Seems durable.

Zerolemon

Couldn't find the other one. It looks as the solar power takes days to weeks for full charge, so the solar aspect is more gimmick that useful.

For Portable chargers I use RAV, have 3 and all of them perfrom well. Less expensive too. Maybe not as durable under envirnmental conditions? The zerolemon looks to good for camping type conditions.
