The Powermonkey Extreme houses a massive 9000mAh capacity Lithium Polymer battery and offers users real power in a compact, durable shell. The unit is capable of recharging most 5V devices, including an iPhone up to 6 times, a Garmin Edge 800 up to 6 times and standard mobiles up to 12 times.
The Powermonkey Extreme has two output channels; one channel outputs 700mAh max (standard USB) whilst the DC port outputs 2.1Amps max to support the Apple iPad (iPad compatible cable included) and other tablet computers. It's worth noting that the iPad can be charged directly from the standard USB socket but will charge faster when using the supplied cable via the DC out port. It is IP67 rated, meaning it is waterproof for 30 minutes up to 1 metre - and shock resistant, the Powermonkey Extreme is perfect for the outdoor, marine & adventure enthusiast, as well as military & aid agencies.
Featuring an LCD screen which displays battery capacity level and working status (on/off), its unique one touch friction swipe on/off control is designed so the unit can only be turned on once connected to a device and cannot be accidentally switched on when not in use.
When the 5V device or tablet computer is fully charged, the auto shut-off function means the Powermonkey Extreme will turn itself off after 2 minutes, so the user does not have to monitor the charge state of the device being charged - thus saving power. The unit can be recharged in three ways; via the universal mains charger, via the solar panel or via USB. Whilst it is recharging, the LCD screen will be red, once fully charged, the screen will turn green, when it is in use, the screen will be blue.
