New for 2015, the upgraded award-wining solarmonkey adventurer.
When size and weight is at a premium, this product is the perfect
Incorporating a 3500mAh internal lithium polymer battery, the 2015
solarmonkey adventurer features a 4-colour LED light to show level of
charge left in the internal battery and a 5V 2 Amp output which enables
efficient charging of mobile devices.
This charger is compatible with a whole host of 5V devices and can
charge an iPhone / smartphone 1-2 times, a GPS 1-3 times or an iPad by
up to 25%. It is also compatible with head lamps, e-readers,
hand-held action cameras and much more.
The slim, compact design offers optimum weight-to-efficiency at just
265g and the 2 solar panels output 3 watt max. The adventurer
features auto-load, self sensing switching technology, meaning when a
device is connected, the adventurer will automatically start to charge
your device and will optimise the charging parameters required.
The solarmonkey adventurer includes a "daisy-chain" feature which means
you can charge your device whilst the internal battery is being charged
via the solar panels. When adventurers finally stop after a day’s
exploring the solarmonkey adventurer can carry on charging itself and
other devices efficiently in low light conditions thanks to the maximum
power point tracker (MPPT) technology within it and, when the sun
finally sets, the internal battery can keep your devices powered
through the night.
The bespoke travel case has been developed using toughened materials
and includes integral fixings, straps and a carabiner so that the
solarmonkey adventurer is well protected and can be firmly secured to a
backpack to make the most of the day’s sunlight to recharge the
internal battery unit while on the go. There are also pockets within
the case to hold your cables and tips.
Packed full with protection features including short-circuit
protection, overload protection and low voltage protection and
importantly, thermal insulation battery protection giving an operating
temperature range of -10 to 90 degrees C, the original solarmonkey
adventurer won the hearts of those looking to charge from both battery
and solar from a compact unit and the 2015 model looks set to win even
This sleek multi charger, is an ideal accessory to take with you about

the Solar panel in 19-20 hours (depending on weather conditions). The
Solar Panel is 1.5W
As an example a standard iPhone 6 (1800 mAh), can be charged in 1.5-2
hours when the phone is switched off.

The sun is the ultimate source of energy for our planet, so
harnessing that energy is the most natural way to generate power.
The solarmonkey expedition is a strong yet lightweight solar panel
designed to charge 5V devices including smartphones, GPS, head lamps,
action cameras and more, as well as other Powertraveller
chargers. Housed in an aluminium case, the solarmonkey expedition
outputs 5 Watts, 5V 1Amp and is capable of charging an iPhone 6 in 3-4
hours, a GoPro Hero 4 in 3-4 hours and GPS systems in 2-3 hours.
It can charge virtually any 5V electronic device, making it an
incredibly useful addition to any backpack or kit bag.
The aluminium acts as a heat-sync, making the panel both efficient and
hard-wearing and it can charge devices even in low light conditions
thanks to the MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker) technology
included. The non-reflective, photovoltaic solar panels are tough
enough to take the general knocks and spills of outdoor enthusiasts and
professionals alike whilst the clamshell design perfectly protects the
panels when not in use.
The solarmonkey expedition is waterproof (IP65 rated) meaning that it
can withstand water projected from a nozzle against the unit from any
direction and is also dust-tight - perfect for when you're off the
beaten track. The clever design means it can open to a 225 degree
angle, enabling it to fit perfectly around a backpack, across bike
panniers or along the roof of a tent so you can charge, whatever you're
This tough, waterproof solar panel was primarily designed as a charging
option for the the award-winning powermonkey expedition, doing so in
just 12-15 hours in optimum sunlight conditions - perfect if you're in
the desert, up a mountain or simply on the move.
Weighing just 410g and measuring 110 x 200 x 18mm when folded, the
solarmonkey expedition is one of the most versatile and efficient solar
chargers available on the market today and comes with the backing of an
multi-award winning company.
With an ever-increasing number of people heading out to the world's most remote locations, it is evident that a growing amount of mobile devices are going with them. The need for unlimited, off-grid power has never been greater and now, we can supply it.
Powertraveller has developed a world-first in off-grid power generation. The powermonkey expedition is a revolution in portable charging technology, bringing together multiple ways in which to naturally, yet efficiently generate power - all housed in strong, aluminium, waterproof casing.
The waterproof (IP65 rated) powermonkey expedition houses a 10,500mAh lithium polymer battery which can be charged in three ways; via hand-powered crank, solar or via the international AC mains charger.
The strong, ergonomic hand crank allows you to generate power at a comfortable speed thanks to the 32:1 gearing ratio. The unit features an LED that indicates the optimum speed for hank crank charging - when the LED is green, the hank crank is producing energy at an optimum, efficient level. The anodised, aluminium casing is ridged, providing a secure grip even if your hands are cold/wet or you're wearing gloves.
10 minutes of hank crank charges the internal battery by 1% - equivalent to a 6.7% charge of an iPhone 5s. Once the battery is charged, the hand crank folds away neatly or can even be removed completely if required.
The sun is the ultimate source of energy for our planet, so harnessing that energy is the most natural way to generate power. Supplied in the launch pack is the solarmonkey expedition - a solar panel housed in a very strong, lightweight, aluminium case which has been specifically developed to work with the powermonkey expedition. The solarmonkey expedition outputs 5 watts, 5V 1Amp and is capable of recharging the powermonkey battery unit in 12-15 hours in optimum conditions, perfect if you're in the desert, up a mountain or simply on the move. The aluminium acts as a heat-sync, making the panel both efficient and hard-wearing and it can charge devices even in low light conditions thanks to the MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker) technology included.
The solarmonkey expedition is waterproof (IP65 rated) meaning that it can withstand water projected from a nozzle against the unit from any direction and is also dust-tight - perfect for when you're off the beaten track.
The powermonkey expedition is also supplied with an international AC mains charger that will work in over 150 countries around the world. The internal battery can be fully charged via AC mains in just 12 hours so you can be sure that you have power before you head off into the unknown. The international AC mains charger is a major benefit in remote areas where electricity may be limited or unpredictable.
Featuring both 12V DC and 5V USB outputs, the powermonkey expedition is capable of charging everything from iPads/tablets, two-way radios, satellite phones and smartphones, to GPS, head lamps and SLR cameras, plus a plethora of other devices. Users can also charge from both outputs simultaneously while charging the internal battery, giving you the freedom to keep working.
Both input and output cables are connected via a unique IP67-rated housing system, ensuring all connections remain waterproof, for up to 1 metre for 30 minutes.
The powermonkey expedition has been cleverly designed so that additional charging options can be added at a later date. Whilst the hand crank, solar and AC mains are currently the primary power generation option, supplementary options will include wind and water (currently in R&D), steam turbine, gas and hydrogen fuel-cell, so whatever situation you find yourself in, the powermonkey expedition ensures your essential devices will never run out of power.
This revolutionary product is the culmination of Powertraveller's expertise in portable charger manufacturing and feedback from extreme ambassadors using our products in the field; including mountaineers Squash Falconer and Kenton Cool, plus legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
