Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Power Traveller Power Monkey - Universal Charger for all Mobile, PDA & iPod, 2200mAh (Electronics)
Agree totally with Paul Madge; can't understand why this great little product doesn't have a higher profile, because it deserves it. A seriously useful piece of kit that is well worth carrying with you. You charge it up from the mains and it has 4 interchangeable plugs to facilitate this: UK 3-pin, international 2-pin round, 2-prong straight and 2-prong angled (V shape). There are 9 output connectors/adaptors, some of which I don't recognise and can't name, but I confirm that crucially these include standard size USB male and female, and a mini USB which fits my Motorola V3i and Olympus FE230. Note that you will not be able to charge all mobiles with the included adaptors, but it is worth checking with Power Monkey suppliers for additional adaptors which they can supply for other mobiles and PDAs. At the end of June 2007 the new model will be available which includes a visible charge meter and a solar slave, meaning that you'll also be able to charge it up outdoors. My only gripe with this unit is that there is no switch lock to stop you from inadvertently switching it on, but the switch itself is quite stiff, so there is a reduced likelihood of this happening. Have mobile gadgets? - get one.
