Five years in development, the powermonkey extreme is the culmination of feedback from real power users in some of the most remote locations on the planet and embodies Powertraveller’s understanding of customer requirements in the outdoor and adventure travel market.
Powermonkey Extreme is a portable solar charger with a 9000mAh capacity that will endure the most extreme environmental conditions. Waterproof for 30 minutes up to 1 metre – and shock resistant, the powermonkey extreme is perfect for the outdoor, marine & adventure enthusiast, as well as military & aid agencies. The unit is capable of recharging most 5V devices, including an iPhone up to 6 times, an iPad/Tablet 2 times and standard mobiles up to 12 times!
Featuring an LCD screen which displays battery capacity level and working status (on/off), its unique one touch friction swipe ON/OFF control is designed so the unit can only be turned on once connected to a device and cannot be accidentally switched on when not in use. To turn the powermonkey extreme on, swipe the panel from left to right with your thumb. To turn off, swipe with your thumb from right to left. When the 5V device or tablet computer is fully charged, the auto shut-off function means the powermonkey extreme will turn itself off after 2 minutes, so the user does not have to monitor the charge state of the device being charged – thus saving power.
