- Bought this a little before I set off on a Kayak expedition around the south of Greenland and I'm glad i did. Blessed with blue sky and sunshine (less for Tuesday when it rained al day) I had the opportunity to charge the battery each evening, even with only a few hours charging the battery was enough to charge phones and mp3's I did find however, GoPro batteries drink the power like they have an addiction, so beware! A full charge at home before I travelled gave enough power to last two days before I used the solar charger. The ability to charge a device and charge the PowerMonkey is really simple as it comes with lots of different adaptors. Overall I'm glad I bought it as it was one the most helpful bits of kit within the group!
- Owning one of these makes you the most popular 'go to person' as everyone wants something to be charged. If you buy one, put yourself first, its yours, you use it before others........its their fault for not prepping correctly!! Just saying!
Also try to avoid water on the Solar Monkey, it isn't as waterproof as the battery and it certainly doesn't like salt water, even small splashes.
