The SolarGorilla is plug and play and as simple as open the clam shell solar panels, connect your cable from the panels to your device and watch it start charging. The brighter the green LED the more intense and faster the charge! For those serious about their power the options are endless.

It is important to remember the SolarGorilla is designed to work with the PowerGorilla. It will work as a standalone portable charger, however it's not a power bank and so for laptops over 40 watts the SolarGorilla may not work as effectively. The SolarGorilla relies incorporates state-of-the-art solar technology and works the greater the UV intensity, not the greater the intensity of the sun.
The SolarGorilla will charge Laptops (under 40 watts), Netbooks, iPads, iPhones, Smartphones (Android/Windows/Others), Mobile Phones, GPS, Sat-Navs, e-Readers, iPods, MP3 Players & more.
