Powertraveler – Powermonkey Expedition

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

While attending DSEi back in September, UK-based PowerTraveller showed me the next big thing in expeditionary power generation. Ever since then I’ve been chomping at the bit tell you about it. It goes beyond anything commercially available and allows you to collect power by Hand, Wind, Solar, Water and Shorepower means. It’s already been recognized with an ISPO Gold Award which recognizes the best new products internationally.

As a guy who spent some time on both the G-76 and G-67 hand crank generators, I was pretty impressed. The Powermonkey Expedition features 32:1 gearing which allows you to use a hand crank to produce power and 10 minutes of cranking gives you 1% charge on the Powermonkey Expedition’s internal battery. Not sure if you’re cranking at the right speed? The device has a simple LED that goes green when you’re up to snuff.

Hand Crank

Don’t want to crank and have stiff wind? Or, driving to a destination? Attach the Powermonkey Expedition to the top of your vehicle to create your own wind while you drive around. Just pull out the silicon windcups and attach them. Want more? Pull out a solar panel and attach that, even while you are using wind power generation.

Solar and Wind

Near a stream? Flip it on its side and harness the power of gravity to spin the cups with water.


This thing has a lot of base’s covered which is why I am so impressed with it.

Granted, it weighs 1.8 kg or just over 4 lbs but the versatility is phenomenal. It relies on a Lithium Polymer battery that 10500mAh with 12v and 5v 800mAh output.

Look for release worldwide May, 2014 in both outdoor (Black/Silver) and tactical (coyote) versions.

DSEi – Powertraveller

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

We have a long history of using Powertraveller products and find them both easy to use and reliable. The waterproof, solar power Powermonkey Extreme is receiving a paint job. Coming in November, it will be offered in The current Black as well as a Coyote color. Additionally, Powertraveller is bundling the Powermonkey Extreme with a Helium Whisper utility pouch from Blue Force Gear. Pouches are offered in Black, Coyote and MultiCam.


The heart of the Powermonkey Extreme is essentially a battery or mobile power source. In addition to the solar panel the device can also be charged via 12v or shore power. It provides 9000mAh and you can expect it to retain 75% of the stored power over a year of unused storage.

Powertraveller Assists Hurricane Sandy Victims

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

When natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy strike it is very important to be prepared in many ways. Oftentimes, we overlook being electronically prepared. In this high tech age of smart phones, tablets, and other portable devices, help, assistance and information can just be a quick touch or click away. “This could not be closer to the truth” said US Army Veteran Curt Brockel of Pennsylvania who has been out of power now for days. Curt has relied on his smartphone and iPad to communicate with his family throughout this unfortunate disaster. Even without normal shore power Curt has been able to rely on his Powertraveller Extreme and Powergorilla to keep himself, and his family, charged up. Not only that but he was able to visit those around his immediate area and loan the devices out to neighbors and friends so they could all keep charged up and connected during these difficult times. “It is very important to be prepared for natural disasters and emergencies, having a means of storing energy and to harness more, naturally could be the difference between life and death” Curt stated.

Powertraveller solar products utilize special MPPT technologies which allow their panels and storage devices to store energy even during low light conditions. Additionally, their battery storage devices many of which are IP65 and 67 rated utilize state of the art environmentally friendly lithium polymer technologies to store and manage the power.

Powertraveller products are used by many of today’s warfighters on the battlefield to keep their devices powered up and running. Now we see Powertraveller come to the aid of hurricane victims by dispatching devices to be handed out to victims and aid workers alike.
