What is the difference between the SolarPanel 5 and the SolarPanel 5+?

The SolarPanel 5+ has a 2200mAh onboard battery which can store energy for later. It is also USB-rechargeable if you want to charge the panel before you head out into the sun! The SolarPanel 5 does not have an onboard battery, so it only charges your device if it is in the sun.
