New for 2015, the upgraded award-wining solarmonkey adventurer. When size and weight is at a premium, this product is the perfect solution.
Incorporating a 3500mAh internal lithium polymer battery, the 2015 solarmonkey adventurer features a 4-colour LED light to show level of charge left in the internal battery and a 5V 2 Amp output which enables efficient charging of mobile devices.
This charger is compatible with a whole host of 5V devices and can charge an iPhone / smartphone 1-2 times, a GPS 1-3 times or an iPad by up to 25%. It is also compatible with head lamps, e-readers, hand-held action cameras and much more.
The slim, compact design offers optimum weight-to-efficiency at just 265g and the 2 solar panels output 3 watt max. The adventurer features auto-load, self sensing switching technology, meaning when a device is connected, the adventurer will automatically start to charge your device and will optimise the charging parameters required.
The solarmonkey adventurer includes a "daisy-chain" feature which means you can charge your device whilst the internal battery is being charged via the solar panels. 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 keep your devices powered through the night.
The bespoke travel case has been developed using toughened materials and includes integral fixings, straps and a carabiner so that the solarmonkey adventurer is well protected and can be firmly secured to a backpack to make the most of the day’s sunlight to recharge the internal battery unit while on the go. There are also pockets within the case to hold your cables and tips.
Packed full with protection features including short-circuit protection, overload protection and low voltage protection and importantly, thermal insulation battery protection giving an operating temperature range of -10 to 90 degrees C, the original solarmonkey adventurer won the hearts of those looking to charge from both battery and solar from a compact unit and the 2015 model looks set to win even more.
