We have become aware of a potential problem with a specific batch of minigorillas with the batch serial number: - MG39731111029F22.   

If you are the owner of a minigorilla with this batch number,  which is shown on the reverse of the product, please could you contact our customer service team:  support@powertraveller.com or telephone: 01420 542976 

 

Originally designed specifically as a portable charger for the latest netbooks, the minigorilla is also able to charge the Apple iPad (via the Apple cable supplied with the iPad) or the Samsung Galaxy Tab using our specially designed tip (available separately from the tips section). It can also be used with e-readers, camcorders, mobile phones and many more electronic products that require a 19V DC input or less.


Featuring a range of voltage settings (8.4V, 9.5V, 10.5V, 12V, 16V & 19V), the minigorilla has a 5V USB output, meaning you can also recharge your mobile, iPod, iPhone, PDA, PSP and more. Incorporating the latest HDLP (High Density Lithium Polymer) battery technology, the minigorilla will have maximum power efficiency to size and weight.

The minigorilla will give up to 5-6 hours on a Sony Vaio P-series netbook at 10.5Volt setting. minigorilla will give up to 2 hours on other netbooks set at 19Volts. However, the minigorilla may discharge its power in 30 minutes as it's recharging the internal battery of the netbook. The combined recharge of the internal battery and the power used during initial connection gives up to an additional 2 hours of extra power.

The minigorilla portable charger has the same finish as our brilliant powermonkey explorer charger for phones and 5V devices, with a laser-etched rubber coating, meaning it's tough and durable. Supplied with a universal AC mains charger that works in over 150 countries around the world, a protective neoprene carry case and a whole host of monkeynuts to allow connectivity to the most popular of electronic products.

minigorilla has many safety features including short-circuit and over-charging protection. If a previously used output voltage saved in the minigorilla's memory is higher than the voltage a new device to be charged requires, the minigorilla will automatically shut off. If the USB and DC output ports are empty, minigorilla will automatically shut off after 2 minutes and if devices attached via USB and DC output port are fully charged, minigorilla will also shut off. The minigorilla has a long storage life, if it hasn't been used for a year, the battery capacity lost is less than 10%.

minigorilla features an LCD screen which indicates battery capacity status and level of charge left in minigorilla, and the blue backlight will automatically turn off after 5 seconds to save power.

The minigorilla can be recharged via the included mains charger in 5.5 hours or via our fabulous solargorilla solar charger within 6-9 hours.

First review of minigorilla in BBC Focus magazine!

Portable charging devices offer a solution to that 21st-century pandemic: low battery.  They store power to charge the device when you're stranded out of reach from a mains socket.  The new minigorilla charger from Powertraveller is designed specifically for netbooks (although it'll also work with phones, camcorders and other devices too).  For £99.95, it'll give your netbook an extra six hours' juice.

Can I use my netbook mains charger to charge the minigorilla?

The minigorilla will give you between 4-6 hours extra power

How many times can my minigorilla be recharged?

You can recharge the minigorilla over 1,000 times without any significant decrease in battery performance

How long will my minigorilla store the power for?

Your minigorilla will still have at least 60% of its power after one year.

How do I charge my iPhone/iPod from the minigorilla?

Connect your white sync/charge cable that came with your iPhone / iPod to the USB port on the minigorilla

I cannot find the correct tip for my netbook?

Please email support@powertraveller.com with the make and model of your netbook

How do I work out which voltage setting to use with my netbook?

You will need to look at the sticker printed on the AC mains charger supplied with your netbook.  Match the output voltage on the netbook mains charger as closely as you can with the voltage option on the minigorilla e.g. 19.5v netbook will require 19v from the minigorilla

Can my minigorilla charge my laptop as well as my netbook or iPad?

The minigorilla is only suitable for netbooks.  In some cases it can provide extra power for certain laptops, but we would recommend the powergorilla for laptops in all instances.

How can I get my minigorilla to offer maximum extra power to my Netbook/laptop?

You should either ensure that your netbook/laptop is fully charged before connecting minigorilla, this will enable minigorilla to power your device rather than having to increase its workload to charge it too. If it is convenient, you can also create the same effect and prolong the extra power available by removing your internal battery

Will the powermonkey charge my Iridium 9500 Sat Phone?

Unfortunately, the powermonkey will not be a suitable accessory for the Iridium 9500. This phone is only rechargeable via a cigarette lighter socket. The solution would be to buy either a minigorilla plus female lighter socket or a powergorilla (female socket included). Both gorilla products would need to be set at 12V to recharge the Iridium phone.

The newer Iridium phones - 9505a and the 9555 - do have a DC in port and are therefore compatible with the powermonkey.

Will the powermonkey classic, explorer or extreme charge my Iridium 9500 Sat Phone?

Unfortunately, the powermonkey classic and powermonkey explorer will not be a suitable accessory for the Iridium 9500. This phone is only rechargeable via a cigarette lighter socket. The solution would be to buy either a powermonkey extreme which now has a 12V output, a minigorilla plus female lighter socket or a powergorilla (female socket included). Both gorilla products would need to be set at 12V to recharge the Iridium phone.

The newer Iridium phones - 9505a and the 9555 - do have a DC in port and are therefore compatible with the powermonkey.

If I am not going to use my monkey or gorilla charger for a while, is it best to store it with a charge remaining?
