I gather that you used the solar panel to charge the battery pack and then used the battery pack to charge the iPad. How long did it take to charge the battery pack and did you need full sun? How long did it take to charge the iPad?

    Thanks.

    Here is the Solar charger I use and here is the battery pack. You do not need sun you need very bright light. At the cottage we have a skylight which is ideal for me to place the panel when charging the battery pack. 8 hours of charging per day was more then enough to keep me going for the 3 weeks we were at the cottage. With the battery pack the charging time of the iPad is the same as connected to the wall charger. It also kept an iPhone charged during the same period.

    No way that battery pack will charge your iPad 4 from empty to full four times! In fact, it won't charge it from empty to full even once when you factor in the losses. If you don't let the iPad 4 drain much, then you can recharge it several times, but don't let it get anywhere near empty.

    The solar charger is neat, though. I might get one of those...

    But would it charge it from 50 percent to a 100 percent? That would be worth it ....

    So, after looking at the options, I ended up buying a car-charger for the iPad. I figure that most of the time that I've lost house power in the past, the car has still been running and could be used to recharge as we drive (I know that recharging without running the car risks causing the car battery to zero out.)
