OR – Powertraveller

There was lots of power storage and generation at OR. One company was outside in the sun, showing off their wares. Powertraveller’s Powermonkey-eXtreme utilizes their MPPT technology and just won the German Outdoor Red Dot Award.

Waterproof for up to 30 minutes in 1 m of water, the powermonkey-eXtreme boasts a 9000 mAh capacity Lithium Polymer battery making it 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) as well as a DC port offering 2.1 Amps max to support Apple iPads and other tablet computers. It can be recharged in three ways; via the universal mains charger, via the solar panel, or via USB. It holds a charge for a long time meaning you can leave it for up to 1 year and it will still hold 75% of its charge.

Powertraveller CEO Jerry Ranger is a former Royal Marine Commando who served in the SBS so it was great to hear that
lots of military personnel were checking the Powermonkey-eXtreme out. Granite Gear is coming up with a dedicated mobile tactical carrying solution!
