The latter is powerful enough to charge even a tablet such as an iPad, while the former is good for use with less power intensive devices.

It's outer shell is tough enough to resist scratches and most drops, which makes it a perfect companion to take into the backcountry. It also happens to be water resistant with an IP-67 rating. That means it can be submerged for up to 30 minutes without fear of damage, which will come in handy on paddling expeditions or visits to damp climates.
Best of all, the PowerPak is very affordable. The device runs just $69.95 and his available directly from New Trent or Amazon.
