    The Helios Smart External Battery Pack for iPhone, iPad and iPod harnesses the power of the sun to keep your calls coming and music playing. With the trifold solar array you can fully charge the internal battery in record time. And if there's no sun, simply charge via the Micro-USB port.

    Charge smart

    The patent-pending Smart Charge technology allows pass-through charging and charge prioritisation, as well as recognition of small batteries in wearables such as wireless headphones and fitness trackers.

    Keep it green

      Good quality and nice design

      I bought two of these for a bug-out bag and hiking. Both were at least 3/4 charged when received, and seem to work as advertised.

      Exactly as described.

      I ordered one of these to compliment my smaller battery packs. What I really like about this pack is the size. It's small and mighty. It charges my devices I ordered one of these to compliment my smaller battery packs. What I really like about this pack is the size. It's small and mighty. It charges my devices quickly and recharges really well even in indirect sunlight. It exceeded my expectations. It's also got a good feel to it. It doesn't feel brittle or fragile. It's held up to some really good use over the last month.

      Fantastic service from Solpro

      I bought this battery from Apple online. I had some issues with it. After Solpro tried to troubleshoot the problems with me in an extremely timely manner, they I bought this battery from Apple online. I had some issues with it. After Solpro tried to troubleshoot the problems with me in an extremely timely manner, they decided that they would just replace it. They couriered a new one to me in 2 days. I'm extremely happy with the great service.

      Nice but doesn't come with necessary cable.

      Nice piece of equipment. However the only cable that comes in the box is the cable that can be used to charge this device from an electric power source or from Nice piece of equipment. However the only cable that comes in the box is the cable that can be used to charge this device from an electric power source or from the sun. It does not include a cable that can be used with an iPhone 6 Plus, which is what I own, and which is one of the Devices listed as compatible with the charger. You have to buy that cable separately, a USB to lightning cable. None of the information on the website or the instruction manual contains this information. I had to call Apple to find out that I needed to buy another cable. I don't necessarily mind doing this, but the instructions should be clearer.

Then it would not rechar Bought this for recharging iPhone 5 while camping. Worked great for 5 months. Switched to iPhone 7+ and it would not charge the phone.
