Powertraveller® Powermonkey Extreme
Powertraveller® Powermonkey Extreme
The powermonkey-eXtreme is the big brother to the very successful and highly regarded powermonkey-eXplorer, a charger that has quickly become the flagship product of the Powertraveller range.
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.
The 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 up to 6 times, a Garmin Edge 800 up to 6 times and standard mobiles up to 12 times.
The powermonkey-eXtreme has two output channels; one channel outputs 700mAh max (standard USB) whilst the DC port outputs 2.1Amps max to support the Apple iPad (iPad compatible cable included) and other tablet computers. It's worth noting that the iPad can be charged directly from the standard USB socket but will charge faster when using the supplied cable via the DC out port. You can also hook it up to the Samsung Galaxy Tab using one of the Powertraveller Galaxy Tab Cables and then plugging your Samsung Tab cable into that!

IP67 rated - meaning it is 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. 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.
The 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!
The rugged, clam-shell design solar panel offers 3 Watt max output, allowing full recharge of the powermonkey-eXtreme within 15 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.
The 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.
The 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 15 hours.
The 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. Available in four striking colours
