Whether you are backpacking in a remote location or just forgot your charger, nothing is more frustrating than seeing your mobile device shut down by a dead battery. Now your phone, camera, iPod, MP3, MP4, PDA or other device can be powered by the solar Powermonkey-eXplorer.

It is capable of holding enough juice to provide 96 hours of standby time on mobile phones, 40 hours of playtime for iPods, 5 hours on games console, 48 usage hours on PDAs and 6 hours on MP3 or MP4 players. Its solar panels can also be used to charge your devices directly from the sun.

It features an LCD screen that displays battery capacity and the level of charge and has short-circuit protection, over-charging protection and anti-discharging protection. The exterior shell of the Powermonkey-eXplorer is made of rubberized casing to protect it from nicks and dings even in the roughest situations. It is water resistant and comes with an included Velcro strap so it can be attached for sun exposure on a backpack to charge devices while you are on the go.
