The unit is lightweight despite its 10000mAh high capacity. It is equipped with a compact built-in solar panel, which will recharge the battery under sunlight.

We recommend that the first charge to full done at home from a wall power source. It will take around 4-5 hours but it is highly advisable in order to take full advantage of its capabilities. Then you just simply top up as the day goes by, simply by placing the solar panels facing the sun.
There are two USB ports hiding behind a rubber cover at one of the ends. One port is 2.1A ideal for iPad/Tablets and another port is 1.0A, for a smartphone or other devices. This protection will keep sand and other tiny particles from damaging the ports. This power bank can charge two devices simultaneously which is now standard with all new power banks.
