A man chosen to find a way by sea to India from Portugal for trading purposes via Cape of Storms as it was then known, Could it be done? a very well written book. Why did I choose to read this book? I remember seeing a monument to him when I visited Lisbon with school many years ago and wondered a monument was erected to him.

This is a useful piece of kit, to charge tablets and some phones but not some smartphones. Possibly due to the large amount of different items it would be impossible to cater for all appliances. The best bit is probably the voltage range, 3v to 12v.
