powergorilla and solargorilla in Active magazine

Mobile phones, laptops, games and portable dvds all have one thing in common - they all run out of power at the wrong time, writes Graeme Gourlay.  But with a powergorilla, you can keep your children happy and perserve your sanity. 

Just plug it in and you can keep your laptop going for another couple of hours, and phones and small things for ages.  Add the solargorilla and you can keep connected anywhere - well, as long as the sun is shining.  Perfect for the beach or campsite. 

It is extremely easy to use, comes with a stack of adaptors and is fairly robust, with rubber protection strips on its aluminium case.  It only weighs 631g.  The British design is slick and well thought through.  The safety features, such as automatically switching off if it over-heats, and voltage limitations to stop you burning out low voltage products, are reassuring.

I've been travelling with its little brother, the powermonkey, for more than a year to give my mobile phone an often needed energy boost and I've lost count of the number of times I wished for the same resource for my laptop.  Now it's arrived, the only problem is fighting off my children, who want to keep their game consoles going.  No solution is perfect!

"If you're a technophile who always ends up needing a separate bag for all your chargers then this will be worthy investment - even if you do have to invest a little extra cash to make your MacBook work harder."

Powergorilla in Empire Magazine

"powergorilla and solargorilla, the big daddies of Powertraveller's powersimian family, may be the size of a toasted-sandwich maker, but can power your laptop for two to five hours.  Now, if they could only make one that powers a sandwich toaster...."
