I bought this to take on a camping trip and have to say it is a fantastic piece of kit. There are a lot of adaptors in the box allowign you to plug in almost every device imaginable and its very easy to use - so easy I almost wondered if I was missing something. From a single charge on the Power Monkey I was able to charge my Blackberry twice and boosted iPod power before needing to charge it again.

If I was just reviewing the Power Monkey alone this would be a 5 star product.

What really let this down for me was the solar panel charger - the Explorer option. The solar panels are a good pocket sized device and in strong sunlight did help to keep the Power Monkey charged up. What really disappointed me was its construction - for a device to be used outdoors rather than an office environment it certainly has a rugged design and appearance, with ridged grips and rubberised feel. This is unfortunately deceptive however. The hinge joining the two parts of the solar panel is incredibly flimsy and where the hinge connects to one of the panels is two small strips of plastic. Despite being careful in using it, while moving it into sunlight I managed to snag the panels on my backpack and break the hinge with disappointing ease. My fault I realise but for a outdoor device you would expect it to take a little bit of a knock without breaking. Based on my experience I certainly wouldn't expect the panels to survive a fall onto a floor from a few feet if the panel was open.

For such an otherwise great product in which a lot of excellent design thought has gone into, this was a real let down.

I took this gadget on a three week cycle tour to keep my iphone charged. For two weeks it worked brilliantly, even the solar charging worked well. Then one day it just stopped delivering charge to the phone. It hadn't got wet, may have got over-heated, but it was about as well protected as it could have been inside a pannier, so I was left really frustrated with a flat battery.

Additionally, while the assortment of device adapters is excellent, to build-quality is not totally robust. I plugged the Sony Ericsson adapter in to a friend's phone, and when we tried to unplug it pulled apart, rendering it useless.

I will note that I'm about to contact the manufacturer about these failings, so let's see how helpful they are...

I did a bit of research online before buying a solar charger and I am happy that I got a PowerMonkey. I used it while camping and it worked brilliantly. The different adaptor/connections all worked. The only disappointment was not having an adaptor for my Nintendo DS (which was listed as included - but wasn't). However this wasnt a big issue as the device itself worked really well. I would recommend it. It seems crazy to not have one - FREE power from the sun!!!

I bought a Free Loader solar power charger a few years ago then bought a PowerMonkey as a christmas present for my son. I was so impressed with the PowerMonkey I bought one myself. The build quality is excellent (far better than the Free Loader)and the choice of adaptors is extensive. I recently took it on holiday to Turkey and used it to recharge my ipod and PDA. The easiest way of charging the PowerMonkey is via the mains adaptor (again worldwide mains adaptors included)however it can be topped up using the solar panels which plug into the PowerMonkey although to fully charge the unit by this method would take considerable time. Having said that the solar panels can be attached to a rucksac or outer clothing whilst walking and would recharge the PowerMonkey sufficiently to power a dead GPS or mobile phone to enable you to get out of a sticky situation. All in all I'm very pleased with the device.

Takes a long while to charge using solar only, faster otherwise, but then holds its large charge well thereafter.

The battery pack charged up fine from the solar panels, but unfortunately doesnt seem to be compatible with my phone (an oldish Nokia!) so wasnt much use in the end.. emailed the company twice to find out if they were aware of compatibility issues but had no response which is dissapointing. Still, if it works with your phone im sure itd be great!

It did seem like a good idea, nifty looking, compact, environmentally friendly. Only it worked once and then didn't work again. After powering it up from the wall socket and charging a mobile once, the battery/solar panel failed to charge and seemed in fact to further drain my devices. I'm had a refund and not sure that I'm prepared to try again based on some other poor reviews (of the other colours available).
