    Look interesting for people who are on the go. Not sure how well it would change a iPad Pro battery. I am lucky and I have 110v outlet in my SUV and keep a spare charger and lightning cord in the SUV.

    For people with no power available this looks like a good device depending on its specs.

    I'm looking into various solar chargers myself, like the solar gorilla and power gorilla. I'm keeping a look out for other better options. This one looks like something you'd have in a vehicle, not in a backpack.

    Solar is so slow and inefficient and would take a very large array to charge something like an iPad. Sorry obama but unless it was like 3' x 3' it would hardly keep up with using your iPad much less charging it. Solar should only be considered if you are going to be off the grid for a long period of time.

    The power gorilla can charge a MacBook 1.5 times, I'm sure it could do the iPad a few times. I'm ok with slow and like I said, im still looking for something better. The point of travel isn't to use the iPad all the time any way, I'd rather enjoy the surroundings than stare at the screen.
