Frequently asked questions

Does the battery pack of the powermonkey extreme need to be turned on whilst you are charging the battery pack?

No, the battery pack should charge from the solar panel, regardless of whether the battery is turned on or off.  To show it is charging, a moving cursor will show on the LCD screen when the battery is switched on.  If the extreme battery pack is not turned on, the cursor will move around the LCD screen for a few seconds and then disappear, leaving just a red glow from the LCD (this can sometimes be hard to see in bright sunlight).

What is the operating temperature range for the powermonkey extreme and powermonkey explorer?

Both the powermonkey extreme and the powermonkey explorer will charge devices in temperatures of -20 to 60 degrees Centigrade.  You can charge the extreme and the explorer in temperatures on 0 - 45 degrees Centigrade.

When the powermonkey extreme battery only has 25% charge left and I connect it to the solar panel, the on/off switch will not work?

The extreme battery unit will take a 30% charge for itself before it will charge another device whilst it is attached to the solar panel or AC mains charger.

Can I use the aquastrap when my powermonkey extreme is already wet?

Please ensure you only attach the aquastrap to a dry powermonkey extreme.  If the powermonkey extreme is already wet, the aquastrap may not secure properly.

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?

Yes.  If you plan to store your gorilla or monkey portable charger for a long period of time without use, it should be stored with at least 60% charge remaining.  This helps keeps the internal battery in good condition.

How long will the aquastrap keep the powermonkey extreme waterproof?

The aquastrap has an IP65 rating which is tested as standard for an hour.  We do not recommend using the aquastrap with the powermonkey extreme for any longer than this.
