Q:

What do you mean can charge 1.5 times??? I have iPad...how many times can't change it from this device before recharging the device?

Beth N.  asked on  Jul 24, 2013

A:

The amount of times backup battery can charge an item depends on the mAh your item (needing charged) has. The fourth generation iPad for example has a battery that is 11,560 mAh, so the 2,600mAh Portable Backup would charge it roughly 1/4 of the way full and the 5,200mAh Portable Backup will charge the item roughly half the way.
