The Power Monkey eXplorer is an amazing gadget we were sent to try. It is so needed for travelers like us that I decided to make an entire article devoted to it. How many times we have been camping or in a foreign country or in our car and suddenly our camera or computer “died.” And as travel writers, we definitely are lost when that happens. Several times we have brought the wrong connector to use the power available in another country and late at night could not find one to purchase. This little Power Monkey eXplorer will solve almost any traveler’s power problems because it is solar powered and IT ACTUALLY WORKS!!!
Everyone has had the irritating experience of a cell phone cutting off and you discover you forgot your car charger. Power Monkey eXplorer is small enough to keep in your glove compartment, back pack, carry-on, or even your pocket or purse. And by placing it in the sun you can gain a portable additional 96 hours of standby time on mobile phones, 40 hours of playtime for iPods, 5 hours on games console, 48 usage hours on PDAs and 6 hours on MP3 or MP4 players. The smart design keeps the Power Monkey eXplorer lightweight, and it is encased in a durable, shock and water resistant rubber casing and has a velcro strap so you can attach it to your belt loop or backpack to collect the power you need from the sun as you hike or work. Therefore, you have an almost everlasting, free source of portable power for any situation. You can even use it to power your devices directly from the sun. Power Monkey eXplorer displays the battery capacity and level of charge on an LCD screen. The inventers have thought of everything: it has short-circuit protection and over-charging protection and also anti-discharging protection.
