Frequently asked questions

My powergorilla will not charge my laptop

Please ensure you are using the correct tip for your laptop.  Once you've confirmed the tip is correct, read the instruction guide that came with the powergorilla and make sure you have selected the correct voltage.  If the powergorilla still does not charge your laptop, please remove the laptop's internal battery - details on how to do this will be in your laptop's documentation.

Still having problems?  Please email support@powertraveller.com

Where can I buy additional parts for my powergorilla?

We have an accessories section on our website where you can purchase replacements and extras for your powergorilla.

What performance can I expect from my powergorilla?

In most cases, the powergorilla will run your laptop (similar to an external battery). If your laptop is switched off, the powergorilla will begin charging it.  With lower consumption laptops, the powergorilla can charge and power your laptop at the same time.

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

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

How can I connect my powergorilla to my Macbook, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air?

The powergorilla is compatible with Apple Mac laptops using the MagSafe type connector.  You will need an Apple MagSafe Airline Adaptor, which you can purchase either from Apple directly or from our website.  This plugs in to the 12v car charger socket that comes with the powergorilla.

Please note, the MagSafe cable is only suitable for Apple Macs incorporating the MagSafe style of connector. If you are unsure if your Mac uses Magsafe, please email support@powertraveller.com - you may require the L77D tip for the older Mac laptops (such as powerbook.) The MagSafe adaptor will only POWER you Mac laptop, it will not charge it.

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

You will need to look at the sticker printed on your laptop's AC Adaptor / Mains charger.  Match the output voltage as closely as you can with the option on the powergorilla e.g. 19.5v laptop will require 19v from the powergorilla.
