How long will it take to charge your device from Goal Zero power packs?
It takes the same amount of time to charge your device from a Goal Zero power pack as it does from the wall.

For the best experience with any of our Sherpa rechargers, we suggest using an Apple MacBook Charging Kit. The kit is designed to give you the most flexibility when charging your MacBook – whether that’s from the wall or one of our patented laptop ports on our Sherpa rechargers. Add this recommended cord by clicking the check box up in the “Make it a Kit” section above.

We only use certified Apple MagSafe Power Adapters (with “L” style connectors) and combine them with specialized tips to work with the Laptop Port on the Sherpa rechargers. This flexible setup allows you to use the same adapter for charging from a wall outlet and the Sherpa rechargers.

Apple MagSafe Power Adapters are available in 45W or 85W, depending on what version of MacBook you have. Apple has a handy page dedicated to helping you choose the right adapter. See Here.

Please note, if you have a MacBook from late 2012 and on, you might need to purchase a MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converter.
