Product Description

Product Description

Powertraveller minigorilla portable charger:
Developed by an award-winning manufacturer, the minigorilla portable netbook charger will give you up to an extra 6 hours of power, depending on your netbook's specification, and over 10 hours on various other electronic devices.

Multi-voltage functionality from 5V to 19V:
The minigorilla will work with devices up to 19Volts - so from your netbook or tablet, right down to your smartphone, iPod, GPS or headlamp. For devices over 5V, just select which voltage you require; 8.4V, 9.5V, 10.5V, 12V, 16V or 19V and the LCD screen will indicate which setting has been chosen, then connect your device and start charging. Charge 5V devices via the standard USB socket.

To Work Out The Voltage Of Your Device:
If your device is charged via a USB socket - the maximum voltage of your device will be 5 Volts. For other products, the voltage your device requires can be found in either the user manual supplied with the device or on the AC mains charger.

Works With:
The minigorilla will work with most major netbook and tablet brands including Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Lenovo and virtually any 5V electronic device such as smartphones, iPods, GPS, handheld action cameras, Sat Navs, headlamps, torches, e-readers and more. You can even charge your netbook and your mobile phone simultaneously - a term known as "daisy-chaining". Please note, to charge Apple 5V devices you will require your white sync / charge cable.

Battery Capacity and Charge Times:
The minigorilla outputs power at the same rate as if your device was plugged into AC mains power so will take roughly the same time to charge from the minigorilla as it would if it were charging from AC mains. The minigorilla houses a massive 9000mAh lithium polymer battery - capable of charging an iPhone up to 6 times or a netbook once.

Stylish and Compact Design:
One-touch button technology means the minigorilla charger for netbooks is easy to use and its sleek, aluminium casing with shock resistant rubber protection strips makes it a stylish accessory for your netbook and other portable devices. Weighing just 265g and measuring 150 x 83 x 14mm, the minigorilla is the perfect size to slip into your bag, briefcase or backpack.

Recharging the minigorilla:
The minigorilla can be recharged by the included universal AC mains charger which works in over 150 countries, or you can purchase a solargorilla solar charger for a totally portable power station - perfect for when you're off the beaten track.

Who's It Suitable For?
The minigorilla is ideally suited for those needing to keep their must-have portable electronics powered up or those that are often away from AC mains power but rely on their netbooks, tablets and other portable electronic devices to keep essential lines of communication open.

    Just got mine, and the manual implies in both the diagrams and the text that you can connect the device to the mains and also to the laptop, using it as a replacement for the laptop PSU, but so far that's not happening, once the minigorilla is connected to the mains it then just shows a charging screen and won't react to any button presses and won't supply power to the laptop, it will charge a device like a phone via the USB port on the minigorilla though. So basically if you are travelling and want to use a netbook/small laptop a lot, you will have to carry the netbook PSU as well as the minigorilla, which is a missed trick for sure.

    (later update) I spoke to Powertraveller about this and was told that the manual is misleading but you can do what I wanted by speaking to them to get a tip that will allow you to plug your *laptop* charger into the minigorilla, and as long as you select the right voltage beforehand, the minigorilla will charge from the laptop adapter (it doesn't need to be 9v) and will pass power through to the laptop. I've just got the tip and have set it up and both the minigorilla and the laptop are charging from the same 19v laptop PSU, and indeed, once the minigorilla is charged, it still passes power through, I was able to charge the minigorilla, a laptop and a mobile phone all at the same time.

    This is probably more convenient than the manual's suggested method as it allows you to take the laptop charger, laptop and minigorilla leads and connect them all up to charge the minigorilla and laptop, and once done you can then use the laptop charger straight into the laptop. If it worked the way the manual suggests you'd have to have the minigorilla and charger with you if you wanted to run the laptop off the mains. Upgraded review to 5 stars as a result.

    I bought this specifically to pair it with a PowerTraveller Solar Gorilla Power Device for when out hiking and camping in "the wild". This really is a versatile device. The company, PowerTraveller also sell a Canon LP-E6 battery charger that you can plug into it (which I ordered from their website). For my needs here's what I need it to do when I'm out hiking / camping:

    - Charge my Canon LP-E6 camera batteries
    - Charge my iPhone
    - Charge my 11" MacBook Air

    All of which it can do with no problem. For the MacBook Air bit you'll either need to buy a Apple MagSafe Airline Adapter and a 12v socket to plug into the MiniGorilla, or do what I did and chop up an old MagSafe lead and stick a plug on the end which you can buy from Maplin. That way you can plug it straight into the MiniGorilla.

    IMPORTANT: Don't RUN your MacBook Air directly from the MiniGorilla, instead turn it off and charge it instead. What I do is charge it overnight when I'm not using it so that my MBA is ready for the day / evening then charge the MiniGorilla in the day time with the SolarGorilla. Once you're in that cycle you'll never get a flat battery as you can even charge the MiniGorilla when walking by strapping the SolarGorilla to the back of your backpack via the top strap slot. Then once you make camp, point the SolarGorilla to the best angle towards the sun for maximum effect. You can charge a flat MiniGorilla in a day with the SolarGorilla.

    I bought the Mini Gorilla for charging my many electical devices.As I travel to remote regions with unreliable power supplies,I can now recharge tablets and phones
    several times.One major benifit is that you only have to carry on charger for the Gorilla,and the charge eveything off it,this saves a lot of weight.This is also one of the very few electrical products for which the after sales service is excellent.When I bought it,I found there was no attachment for my Motorola Xoom.One Email,and a newly made attachment was posted to me,free of charge.

    Having used and been very happy with my Power Monkey for charging my mobile phone, I decided to invest in a minigorilla on buying a netbook. The minigorilla unit is very robust and portable, and fairly easy to use (just remember to ensure you've set it to the correct voltage for your netbook!). It has been really useful on long journeys when mains power isn't to hand providing around 3 hours' additional life for my 19v Acer Aspire netbook. It provides around 4 hours' additional life for my 12v eeePC. I find it does take quite a while to recharge the unit - around 5-6 hours from completely drained to fully charged. The big drawback with the unit is that it auto shuts down after between 2-20 minutes when charging my HTC HD2 from the USB socket. I've tried different cables but to no avail. It does seem to happily fully charge a Nokia N86 but the same glitch occurred with an HTC Wildfire - auto shut down after 5 minutes. This suggests it is useless for charging some mobile phones and unfortunately no guidance is given on the problem on the Power Traveller website or in the Minigorilla handbook. So it seems my Power Monkey won't be retired just yet! ...
