TGO Magazine - extreme 2016 model

Gear Editor for TGO Magazine, Chris Townsend is on a month-long wilderness trek in the High Sierra - he tested the new extreme for us:

"With the number of rechargeable gadgets likely to find their way into your rucksack these days – phone, GPS, camera, head lamp, watch – a backup power source is essential. Battery packs are a good answer but powerful ones are quite weighty and on a long trip you might need several unless you also have a means of backing one up. For this a solar panel sounds ideal. However the ones I’ve tried over the years have been either ineffective or too big and heavy to want to add to the load for a long backpacking trip.

Until now that is."

"It’s been superb and I am delighted with it and it fully justifies the weight of 550 grams."

Country Walking April 2015

Country Walking magazine takes a look at the powermonkey explorer 2:

"Another vital need on a multi-day wild walk is juice, whether it's for your phone, GPS, camera, smartphone or tablet.  This super charger is billed as the toughest on the market; wind, rain and intense cold have no effect on its juicing power.  On one charge it will reanimate the average iPhone 5 five times."
