award-winning powermonkey extreme just got even better.
launched in 2011 after 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 completely embodies Powertraveller's
understanding of customer's power requirements when they are "off-grid".
of March 2013, the powermonkey extreme has undergone some serious upgrades
to further cement the product's reputation as "charger of choice" in the
outdoor and adventure travel market.
powermonkey extreme houses a massive 9000mAh capacity Lithium Polymer
battery and offers users real power in a compact, durable shell. The unit
is capable of recharging most 5V devices, (including an iPhone/smart
phones up to 4 times, a Garmin Edge 800 up to 6 times, standard mobiles up
to 8 times and iPad up to 2 times depending on the model), but it is the
2013 model that really pushes the boundaries.
most important improvement for 2013 is the change to the powermonkey
extreme's DC output option. The standard 5V USB socket remains but the DC
port has been upgraded to output 12V (previously 5V), meaning that the
powermonkey extreme is now capable of charging SLR camera batteries,
portable DVD players and much more directly from the unit. This upgrade
alone pushes the powermonkey extreme out ahead of its nearest competitors
in terms of charging capabilities, whilst the kit remains lightweight and
compact enough for even the most space-conscious traveller.
updated model also includes a female in-car socket so if users only have
an in-car charger for their device, they can now recharge it directly from
the powermonkey extreme.
powermonkey extreme is capable of charging iPads and tablets too. iPad 1,
iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad mini can be plugged directly into the extreme's
USB socket via customer's Apple-supplied white sync / charge cable and
will recharge up to 2 times depending on the model of your iPad. The iPad
4 has slightly different charging requirements and so the 2013 powermonkey
extreme includes a gorilla-pad adaptor specifically for this model. The
gorilla-pad plugs into the 12V DC socket and is used together with
customer's Apple sync / charge cable to charge iPad 4. You can also use
the gorilla-pad for the other iPads/tablets or to give yourself another 5V
USB socket if required.
powermonkey extreme is waterproof for 30 minutes up to 1 metre and shock
resistant - perfect for the outdoor, marine & adventure enthusiast, as
well as military & aid agencies. When used in conjunction with the
aquastrap, the powermonkey extreme will be kept watertight whilst it
charges your devices.
2013, changes to the LCD screen which displays battery capacity level and
working status complete the upgrades to the powermonkey extreme. Rather
than bars indicating how much power is in the unit, the new powermonkey
extreme has a digital read out numbered from 01 (requires charging) to 99
(fully charged). When the unit requires charging, the battery icon in the
bottom corner will flash. Whilst the unit is charging, the LCD screen will
turn red and then green once charging is complete. During normal
operation, the LCD screen will be blue.
unique one touch friction swipe ON/OFF control is designed so the
friction switch can only be turned on if swiped from left to right, which
helps to reduce the risk of it being accidently turning 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.
powermonkey extreme can be recharged in three ways; via the universal
mains charger, via the solar panel or via USB. Whilst the unit is
recharging, the LCD screen will be red, once fully charged, the screen
will turn green. When the unit is in use, the screen will be blue!
rugged, clam-shell design solar panel offers 3 Watt max output, allowing
full recharge of the powermonkey extreme within 18-22 hours in optimum
light conditions. The powermonkey extreme also has a solar energy
detection feature which activates the incorporated state-of-the-art MPPT
(maximum power point tracker) technology, allowing the solar panel to
charge the powermonkey unit more efficiently in low light conditions.
Users can also simultaneously use the solar panel to charge the
powermonkey extreme whilst it is charging their device.
solar panel can be attached to tents or rucksacks via the included Velcro
strap, so is perfect for hiking and is designed to take the knocks and
spills of both the power hungry adventurer and the busy traveller.
Polysilicon solar panel offers photovoltaic efficiency up to 17% and
features a USB output, fully supporting Apple iPhone/iPod, mobile phones
and other 5V gadgets such as portable games consoles, handheld GPS
systems, etc. The solar panel can fully charge the powermonkey extreme in
approx 18-22 hours.
powermonkey extreme unit weighs 242g and measures 152 x 59.5 x 28mm,
whilst the solar panel weighs 214g, measures 171 x 90 mm and is 18mm deep
when folded. The unit has a very low static wastage (meaning you can leave
it for up to 1 year and it will still hold 75% of its charge) and includes
a whole host of safety features to give you total peace of mind. The
powermonkey extreme comes complete with a useful, durable zipped travel
may also want to consider the optional aquastrap (sold separately) - a
clever accessory designed specifically for the powermonkey extreme to keep
it watertight whilst it charges your devices!
