We may as well face facts: we need gadgets. In the olden days we didn’t need them but now we do and that’s that. Even those of us who take to the countryside to ‘get away from it all’ need gadgets to feel truly at ease- however it might pain us to admit it.
Gadgets are great; they allow you to communicate, navigate or listen to our favourite music in places where such activity might previously have been impossible. But since the invention of gadgets many things that might previously have been impossible are now quite the opposite: possible. You can listen to Chris De Burgh whilst stood at the summit of Scafell Pike. You can, depending on your mobile phone provider, call your best friend whilst watching trout swim by on the river Dee. With the aid of GPS you can navigate through thick fog with relative ease…
But then your battery runs out. Chris De Burgh is stopped in his tracks. You find yourself talking to trout. Fog engulfs and disorientates you. You try turning your gadget back on (’just a glitch, surely’) …IT WORKS! Then it dies again; for good this time- the sparkling device that had so enhanced your outdoor experience now so much dead weight. You stare into the blank screen of exhausted technology and, knowing in that moment the overwhelming solitude of permenance, tremble.
…but then you plug in your Powertraveller portable charger and everything’s fine. Your ipod, mobile phone, GPS, or whatever, is immediately reanimated and your on your way without any need for panic.
Designed to military specification, Powertraveller portable chargers can stand up to the toughest conditions to deliver dependable and long-lasting power when you go off the grid. Named after various primates, the diverse Powertraveller range will meet all your wilderness power needs….
A great emergency precaution, the Powerchimp will charge up mobile phones, ipods and will also recharge AA and AAA rechargeable batteries with enough juice to get you by.
The Powermonkey is aimed at those who don’t intend to be near a plug socket for a good few days. It’ll charge your mobile up to three times and is compatible with ipods and other devices including PSP games consoles.
Its photosynthesising cousin the Solarmonkey does the same but uses solar panel. Not only does this make it environmentally friendly but also allows you stay out for as long as you want without being bound by the plug socket (weather permitting, of course). For those who like having the benefit of both worlds there’s the Powermonkey Explorer which combines solar and battery power to make a versatile power source that’ll see you across continents.
At the larger end of the primate scale is the Powertraveller gorilla range. Designed for use with laptops these great apes can deliver hours of power to a multitude of different devices making them king of the jungle when it comes to portable power.
The Powertraveller Minigorilla, despite it diminutive title can deliver up to 6 hrs of extra power to netbooks and other devices simultaneously and it’s big brother the Powergorilla has that bit extra muscle needed to power laptop computers.
Being an environmentally aware lot at Loving Outdoors, the true pick of the bunch for us has to be the Solargorilla. Not only can this award-winning solar panel charge laptop computers (including Macbooks), it’s also compatible with Powergorilla so you’ll have no need to return to a plug socket (weather permitting, as always). As far as we’re concerned it’s the King Kong of portable power that shows exactly why the outdoor world is going bananas for Powertraveller products.
