The full iPad experience

Everything you love about iPad — the beautiful screen, fast and fluid performance, FaceTime and iSight cameras, thousands of amazing apps, 10-hour battery life2 —

is everything you’ll love about iPad mini, too. And you can hold it in one hand.

Beautiful 7.9-inch display

Colors are vivid and text is sharp on the iPad mini display. But what really makes it stand out is its size. At 7.9 inches, it’s perfectly sized to deliver an experience every bit as big as iPad.

  • Each team member in 3rd Place will receive a USB Solar-Powered Charger!

  • The Device that started a movement

    Choose the CLASSIC2 for its large battery size to provide power to multiple devices while on the go. Powers phones, e-readers, tablets and even bike lights, water purifiers, GPS watches, headlamps and more USB-powered electronics

    A day of direct sunlight on the CLASSIC2 captures enough energy for three charges for most smartphones or tops-off most tablets from half-depleted to a full battery. The CLASSIC2 features a full-sized USB port allowing thousands of devices to easily connect just as they do to a USB wall charger.

    The iconic Solio design has been updated with more battery capacity while larger solar panels allow for more energy capture than ever before.

    Anything: Simply connect to the CLASSIC2 using your device’s own USB charging cable.

    Anytime:  Holds charge for up to a year. The CLASSIC2 will give most smartphones 3 complete charges.

    Anywhere: Charge the CLASSIC2 from the Sun, USB port, or the wall.

    “Sundial” for energy capture

    The ingenious design of the Solio CLASSIC2 allows a pencil to be inserted into a central pivot point to make it possible to track the sun like a sundial. Simply point the CLASSIC2 towards the sun and rotate it until the pencil no longer casts a shadow. Adjust the position of the CLASSIC2 each time the pencil casts a shadow for maximum solar capture efficiency. A full day in full-sun completely charges the battery.
