iPad Connector for Power Gorilla, Solar Gorilla and Mini Gorilla
Powertraveller tip to charge Apple iPad with the minigorilla, powergorilla or solargorilla portable chargers.
The gorilla-pad connector features a resistor ID which converts the standard 5volts at 1amp USB into the 5volts at 2.1amps required by the iPad. This compact yet highly efficient little connector weighs only 65grams and measures 50 x 35 x 16mm.
We recommend that you select the 8.4volt setting on the minigorilla or powergorilla as the lower voltage has a better DC/DC converting efficiency which significantly improves the charging efficiency. However, this connector is so clever that if a higher voltage is selected, the gorilla-pad auto-senses the voltage and reduces the parameters to the correct setting!
Note: You should never use our retractable USB cable with the Gorilla-pad accessory – the cable is not rated to take 2.1 amps and may be damaged, especially if used when not retracted. The device’s genuine USB cable must ALWAYS be used.
