When the Batteries Run Out...Solar Powered Chargers

New at Mountain Recreation!  The PowerTraveller line of adventure solar powered chargers. Unlike simple solar chargers, these systems store the solar charge in batteries for later use. Starting at $99 for the PowerMonkey Explorer capable of charging devices like smart phones, iphones, ipods, and gps units. The PowerMonkey Extreme at $199 can charge all of that and more like ipads, tablets, and camera batteries.

Here are some interesting details from the manufacturer.

SolarMonkey Adventurer from Mountain rec

SolarMonkey Adventurer

“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 also keep your devices powered through the night.”

PowerMonkey Extreme at Mtn Rec

PowerMonkey Extreme

“The PowerMonkey Extreme houses a massive 9000mAh capacity Lithium Polymer battery and offers users real power in a compact, durable shell. The unit is capable of recharging most 5V devices, (including an iPhone/smart phones up to 4 times, a Garmin Edge 800 up to 6 times, standard mobiles up to 8 times and iPad up to 2 times depending on the model), but it is the 2013 model that really pushes the boundaries. The standard 5V USB socket remains but the DC port has been upgraded to output 12V (previously 5V), meaning that the powermonkey extreme is now capable of charging SLR camera batteries, portable DVD players and much more directly from the unit.”

A great power solution for the adventurer who spends their time off the grid. Stop by Mountain Recreation and check them out.
