We shall use the sun...

The solar panel can double as a cover. Just let the panel sit in the sun for a while, then use it to cover the tablet, while it charges your battery.

Crank it up

You can also go old school and crank that mess up! And by "mess" I mean the tablet's battery.

A good one-arm workout

PSA: Don't be a Quasimodo. Almost make sure to switch arms periodically when cranking.
