9000mAh Lithium Polymer Battery
The Powermonkey Extreme houses a massive 9000mAh lithium polymer battery and is capable of recharging an iPhone/smartphone up to 6 times, an iPad/Tablet up to 2 times or charging most SLR camera batteries twice. It will work with virtually any 5V or 12V devices including head lamps, handheld action cameras and more.
The included solar panel will charge the Powermonkey Extreme battery unit in 18-22 hours in optimum light conditions and is also capable of charging 5V devices directly. The solar panel’s folding, clam-shell design takes up little space and it can be attached to backpacks, tents, etc via the included Velcro strap.
5V USB and 12V DC Output Sockets
The Powermonkey Extreme has two output ports – a 5V USB socket and a 12V DC socket. From the 5V USB socket you can charge your smaller devices such as smartphones, iPods, GPS, head lamps, etc., whilst the 12V DC socket can be used to charge SLR camera batteries (when used in conjunction with the included female in-car socket), portable DVD players and much more. You can even charge 5V and 12V devices simultaneously thus saving time.
Working Out Your Device's Charge
If your device is charged via a USB socket, the maximum voltage of your device will be 5 Volts.For other products, the voltage your device requires can be found either in the user manual supplied with the device or on the AC mains charger.
The Powermonkey Extreme is compatible with virtually any 5V electronic device such as smartphones, iPods, GPS, handheld action video cameras (e.g. GoPro), Sat Navs, headlamps, e-readers and more, as well as devices requiring 12V to charge such as SLR cameras, heavy duty torches, two-way radios, etc. Please note, to charge Apple devices you will require your white sync/charge USB cable supplied with your Apple product – this can then be directly plugged into the battery unit via USB.
Perfect for Outdoor Use
The Powermonkey Extreme has an IP67 rating meaning it is waterproof for 30 minutes up to 1 meter and its shock-resistant design can take the knocks and spills of any expedition. The included Velcro strap attaches the solar panel to backpacks and tents, allowing the powermonkey battery unit to be charged throughout the day. The friction swipe on/off switch can be used whilst wearing gloves, perfect if you’re outdoors.
Lightweight and Compact Design
The Powermonkey Extreme (battery unit and solar panel combined) weighs just 1 lb and everything fits into the included travel case which measures just 7 x 4 x 2.2 inches. When the solar panel is folded it measures 6.7 x 3.6 x 0.7 inches and the battery unit just 6 x 2.4 x 1.10 inches - perfect for even the most space-conscious traveller.
