This review is from: Power Traveller Power Monkey - Universal Charger for all Mobile, PDA & iPod, 2200mAh (Electronics)
The Powertraveller customer services department is excellent. I should know, I've had so many dealings with them I know them all by name and voice. I bought my Powermonkey V1 in 2007 and I have now been through 4 failed units with the V2 being sent as the latest replacement. Device reliability is not a strong point as a quick search here and through the Net will show.

It does work, however only sporadically. And if you are willing to take the time to fiddle with it over ten minutes, you will eventually be able to charge your device. The functionality with the iPhone 3GS is fickle and I couldn't recommend the V2 if that is your primary device for charging.

Compared to V1, the V2 feels cheap and fragile with poor grade plastics and it would seem many of the rugged comments here relate to the V1, the reviews of which Amazon have pooled.

Finally, do not be tempted as I was by the solar charging option. Even in the glorious sunshine of Italy and France, I have never been able to have more than a third of a charge with a couple of days continuous full sun exposure. You will only be charging this from a mains supply.
