How to Charge Devices with Your Patriot Power Cell:

Your Patriot Power Cells work with any USB-equipped device. Just plug in your existing charging cord! There’s no need to buy extra equipment.

The cord that comes with your Patriot Power Cell is for recharging your Patriot Power Cell. It is not for charging your phone with a Patriot Power Cell. To charge your device, use the cord that came with that device.

Charge your mobile devices with the charging cords that came with those items. If it has a USB end, your cord will work with both of the USB ports.


  1. Use your own power cord
  2. Plug the USB end into one of the Patriot Power Cells USB ports
  3. Plug the other end of your cord into your device
  4. Charging should begin automatically — if it doesn’t, press the power button

Need to charge two devices at once? No problem! Use the two USB ports on your Patriot Power Cell to charge your…

  • Phones — iPhones, Samsung, LG, etc.
  • Tablets
  • E-Readers & Kindles
  • GPS Systems
  • Personal Cooling Fans
  • Cameras
  • Handheld Games
  • Music Players & iPods
  • Bluetooth Speakers
  • Radios
  • LED Lights
  • And much more!

How to Recharge Your Patriot Power Cell:

Recharge your Patriot Power Cells using the AC cord that comes with your units. The cord is short -- perfect for wall-charging. It plugs into any USB adapter… most people have a bunch of these at home. Or plug it into your car or computer.

Once plugged in, charging should begin automatically. If it doesn’t, press the power button.

  1. Use the cord that came with your Patriot Power Cell
  2. Plug the small end into the small center slot on your Patriot Power Cell
  3. Plug the other end into any USB adapter, such as a “wall block” or computer port

Your Patriot Power Cell charges fastest via the AC charging cord that comes with each unit. A Patriot Power Cell can go from zero to “fully charged” in about 6 hours or less* using the AC cord. That’s pretty quick for such a big battery. 

As a backup, you can also charge your Patriot Power Cell phone charger with the sun, it simply takes longer. Charging via solar takes up to 40 hours.* Charge time will vary depending on lighting conditions. We recommend leaving it in direct sunlight on a window sill or outside in the light.

When you’re charging your 4Patriots power cell via sunlight, you’ll see indicator lights on the front panel: 

  • One green light indicates your unit see’s sunlight.
  • One green light and blue lights indicates the 4Patriots solar charger see’s sunlight and is charging.

Once it’s fully charged, your 4Patriots solar charger is ready to use.

* Battery performance will vary based on your charging and usage conditions, including discharge rates, cord and voltage-conversion efficiency, testing conditions, temperature, and age. Always follow storage and use instructions.

How to Store Your Patriot Power Cells:

If you’re storing your Patriot Power Cell away for an emergency, you’ll want to top it off about once a month. That way it’s always charged and ready, whenever you may need it. 

Do not expose your Patriot Power Cell to temps above 122°F or below 14°F. If you need to use your Patriot Power Cell in weather colder than 14°F, put it in your pocket or insulate it to protect it from extreme cold while in operation.

Always follow these storage and usage instructions and always read the manual.

4Patriots Power Cell Review: 

Impressive - Even for BIG Phone Batteries

“You can charge 2 devices. I’m a professional tech reviewer so I have multiple phones — 4000mAh and 3400mAh size. I used the Patriot Power Cell as my main mode of charging for an entire weekend. With all my apps running, I was still able to get 40-50% of a charge on BOTH phones in 1 hour. I was impressed by the way that it charged up the batteries. 

The one thing that I can’t stress enough though… is being prepared for an emergency situation. 4Patriots has a lot of cool stuff for helping you be prepared. Emergencies happen and that’s the way it is.

As far as the Patriot Power Cell goes, it’s a total win. I would recommend it to friends and family. It’s an all-around good product.” - Ace L.

Better Than Any “Battery Case”

“I’ve been using a Mophie Case as a backup battery source for the last 4 years, and it recently started to fail. I saw the ad for Patriot Power Cell in my FB newsfeed, and my curiosity got the best of me.

I’m really super impressed with the quality of these Patriot Power Cell chargers. They’re very rugged, solid, and thoughtful in design. You can charge them from a wall outlet or with natural light, which is great! And I absolutely love that I can be sitting inside near a window charging both my phone and my Patriot Power Cell at the same time!” - Sue E.” 

Our Family is Safer Now

“I have seen this advertised for a while. I wanted to get the 4-pack so I could give one to my two children and my wife.

Too many times we messed up and ran low on power, just to find that we needed a charge. This Power Cell will never let you down as long as the sun shines.

Because honestly, we don’t know what the future brings” – Dana G.

    I wish I would have seen this before buying the Power Cell CX “As a backup, you can also charge your Patriot Power Cell phone charger with the sun, it simply takes longer. Charging via solar takes up to 40 hours.* Charge time will vary depending on lighting conditions. We recommend leaving it in direct sunlight on a window sill or outside in the light.” Seems lime it defeats the purpose of having a solar backup if you have no electrical service for an extended period.

    I use my Patriot Power Cell for when I go hiking to keep my phone charged, especially if I forgot to charge it before I left home. It gives me peace of mind, and I would recommend this unit for use for anyone. I am an impressed and satisfied customer!

  • Shirley Calhoun - February 07, 2022

    I’m just learning this device but truly looking forward to knowing all about it.

  • Lonnie Gonzales - February 26, 2021

    I’m very proud to be part of the 4patriot family. Far too many times in the past I was running low on power not anymore thanks to my 4patriot power cell!

  • Gayla Bryant - November 12, 2020
