Product description

As the need for off-grid power continues to grow, travellers, adventurers and outdoor professionals alike are looking for more efficient, space-conscious ways in which to charge their devices. With the powermonkey explorer 2, Powertraveller gives users the ability to generate their own power from a small, compact unit, whatever situation they find themselves in.

Drawing upon design elements from the award-winning powermonkey expedition, the new powermonkey explorer 2 is the toughest portable charger available on the market today and paves the way for the addition of future power generation options.

The unit houses a powerful, dual-core, 6000mAh lithium-ion battery, capable of recharging an iPhone 5 up to three times, a GoPro Hero3+ four times and a Garmin Edge 1000 four times. It is also compatible with a plethora of other 5V devices such as tablets (including iPad), iPods, digital cameras, sat phones and more.

However, it is the tough, rugged design of the powermonkey explorer 2 that sets it apart from other 6000mAh chargers on the market.

With an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67, the powermonkey explorer 2 is waterproof for 30 minutes in up to 1 metre of water when used with the supplied cable. The waterproof capabilities are not compromised even when the unit is charging a device. The bespoke "bath-plug" style waterproof seal ensures all connections are watertight, giving users the confidence to go farther, faster and longer off the beaten track.

The micro USB IN and micro USB OUT charging connectors include IP65- rated weatherproof caps to keep dust and splashes of water out when not in use, whilst the durable 80cm "Y" cable and powermonkey explorer 2 unit have been tested down to -30°C, ensuring both the cable and the unit will remain strong and waterproof.

The ridged, anodised casing provides a secure grip, even if hands are cold or wet and the cylindrical design makes the unit ultra-strong - enough to support the weight of a Land Rover Defender. Tough enough to withstand heavy knocks and spills, the powermonkey explorer 2 will survive the harshest of environments without compromising on charging capabilities, supporting users in any situation.

The powermonkey explorer 2 will have a bike mount accessory (not included) which attaches to the bike frame and allows users to charge their GPS systems / smartphones whilst riding. This can also be attached to tent poles, etc ensuring the unit is secure whilst charging devices. The bike mount will be available to purchase by the end of 2014.

Designed so that additional charging options can be added at a later date, the powermonkey explorer 2 will eventually have its own hand crank and wind turbine modules. The ability to add future power generation options makes this a world-class product, set at the forefront of portable charging technology. The powermonkey explorer 2 can also be charged via Powertraveller's famous solargorilla and the forthcoming solarmonkey expedition solar panel.

The powermonkey explorer 2 is the official power product of the Red Bull X-Alps 2015 - the world's toughest adventure race and aims to become the flagship of the already award-winning Powertraveller range, further cementing the brand's reputation as charger of choice in the outdoor, adventure, aid and military markets.

Waterproof and highly protected backup power supply. The only downside is the smaller capacity. However, I recommend it for trips where you can sometimes charge.

Good battery bank for demanding use, but capacity is quite a bit relative to weight. Fully charge your smartphone battery a couple of times.

Durable, but there is some weight.

At first, small challenges to get the job done. Since then, worked flawlessly. The plugs at the ends of the pipes come off when the fasteners break ...

Works well even in severe frost. The display shows the charge status reliably. The wires are a bit flimsy but not hopelessly weak though. Now that I have owned the device for a long time, it has been found that contact interference occurs with cables relatively easily, and after that the device is quite useless.

Well made, sturdy construction. Download capacity is exactly what the spec says. A little lighter if it had been done, the grade would be 5/5.

Varustelista retkelle

Alla esimerkkilistausta, josta voi helposti tsekkailla että mitä kaikkea voi / kannattaa ottaa retkelle mukaan. Varusteiden määrä riippuu kovasti, että minkä pituista retkeä ollaan suunnittelemassa ja millaisiin olosuhteisiin, mutta laatimamme lista on sen verran kattava, että...
