The Sherpa 50 powers your device in 3 ways:

  1. USB: The USB port best charges all your medium USB powered devices.
  2. Laptop Port: Use the included laptop tips to power your laptop without the need of the laptop wall charger. For Apple Laptop products, we strongly recommend using the Sherpa 100 Power Pack for the best performance.
  3. AC Inverter: Plug in your device just as you would to the wall with the removable inverter. (sold separately)

It takes the same amount of time to charge your device from a Goal Zero power pack as it does from the wall.
