A Note About Tablets:
Tablet computers, like the iPad, can be ‘powered’ from the OffGrid’s V15 internal battery, which means you will not be draining the tablet’s battery. However, most tablets will not ‘charge’ from the 1A output of the V15 battery. Ask about upgrading to the V44 battery which offers the full 2.1A USB output for Tablets.
