Tech Advisor

Portable battery pack that will give your gadgets a boost

from Tech Advisor
The battery pack alone can be a major asset if you're away from the mains with power-hungry equipment but when bundled with the solar panel, the powermonkey extreme provides an extra level of convenience. Solar power will always be rather hit and miss in the British climate, so don't expect too much except in bright sunlight but, under those conditions, you'll garner a considerable charge during a day's hiking...

The design and operation is well thought out

from Pocket GPS World

It's another win from Powertraveller. For anyone who needs a large reserve of portable battery power it ticks all the boxes. The design and operation is well thought out, the hardware is rugged and waterproof and, with USB output it can support most common devices available nowadays.

The only area where it loses marks is cost. At £120.00 it's never going to be an impulse purchase. But it can do the job of 2 or three smaller battery packs and, with it's mains charger and solar panel it means you have the ability to recharge your devices anywhere, be that the outback or the Cost...

The battery is pretty heavy but it’s kitchen floortile-proof

from Gear We Are

But like the Explorer and other similar solar products, the Power Monkey Extreme suffers from the sun. Stick it out on an ordinary summer day here in the UK and you’ll be lucky to charge anything at all with it, not least the trendy new tablet devices which it is designed for. There’s just not enough sun to rely on such tech here in Blighty and even if there was I’m not convinced anyone can effectively and efficiently convert it yet. But as a power storage device this is brilliant. Plug it into your computer or the wall before you leave for your jollies and you’ll ha... Full review

The powermonkey extreme gives your devices the power to keep on going

from Craving Tech
The size may not be the smallest and the thinnest, but you want a portable battery because of its features and not the aesthetic. The Powertraveller powermonkey-eXtreme excels in the features, especially if you are the adventurous type with frequent outdoor activities. No matter where you go, you’ll always have power with you, thanks to this extreme portable battery charger... Full review

The quality of the kit and service levels from the company make it a worthwhile investment

from Richard Mackney

This is pretty serious kit that would suit people camping away from mains power. I confess I have a love for solar so the panel apeals to me more than the battery. I would love to see the Solarmonkey sold separately as I feel it is the shining star of the outfit. At over 400g both units make it a slightly eXtreme mobile power solution for backpackers and walkers while the 200g panel is worth the extra payload when combined with a lighter smaller capacity battery. If you are using a bicycle or kayak then weight may not be such a problem, and this will surely be the product to buy in 2011.Full review
