A good place to hide your solar power bank

As a tech geek I have 3 times the amount of USB power banks than what I'll ever use. I like to keep one in every car and the Model 3 is no exception.

View media item 118414My recent purchase is a 15Ah power bank that has a built in solar panel to keep the batteries topped off. I've been looking for a good place to store the power bank so it can charge without it being too unsightly, and then I found the trunk grill.

I had no idea why there is a grill above the trunk, then I realized that the subwoofer is installed in the trunk. No wonder the Model 3 had such good bass!

PS - the power bank is by RavPower. It sells on Amazon for about 26 bucks.
