    Off-grid power to keep your essential devices going
    Powertraveller Powergorilla Multi-Voltage Portable Charger

    Developed by a multi-award winning manufacturer, this high tech portable Powergorilla battery allows you to charge your laptop, tablet, smartphones and other electronic devices on the move. The rechargeable and rugged battery offers up to 24V of charge to your power hungry devices. As a laptop charger Powergorilla will give you an extra 2-6 hours of power depending on your laptops specification, and over 20 hours on various other electronic devices. Powertraveller’s Powergorilla really is the king of the battery jungle.

    Powerful Voltage

    Powergorilla offers a multi-voltage functionality of 5v, 8.4v, 9.5v, 12v, 16v, 19v or 24v from its high density lithium polymer battery. The higher voltages of 16V, 19V and 24V are suitable for charging laptops, netbooks and tablets. Whereas the lower voltage settings will charge Smartphones, iPods, GPS systems and much more. To identify the voltage of your device requires you to check either the supplied user manual or on the AC mains charger. If your device is normally charged using a USB socket, its maximum voltage will be 5 Volts.

    Portable and Rugged Design

    Leave all other chargers behind and, from a single Powergorilla, charge all your gadgets while on the move. Powergorilla is built for almost any environment, thanks to key features such as shock resistant protection grips and a lightweight aluminium casing. A sleek and stylish design with a width of just 17mm and weighing just 700g, makes the device very portable when considering its incredible output. The Powergorilla has been field tested in Afghanistan, Madagascar and Antarctica. Being subjected to extremely hot and very cold temperatures, the Powergorilla has performed successfully thanks to its rugged and agile design.

    Extensively tested in extreme environments
    Battery Capacity and Charge Times

    Powergorilla is powered by a massive 21000 mAh HD Lithium Polymer Rechargeable Battery. The battery is so powerful that it will output at the same rate as an AC mains wall socket. The amount of charge you get depends on how power hungry your device is. As a laptop charger the Powergorilla will give you an extra 2-6 hours of juice, depending on your laptop’s specification. Lower powered devices such as smartphones can get up to 10 full charges. With a DC and USB output, the Powergorilla allows you to charge two devices simultaneously.

    Charge your high powered deivces
    Works With:

    The Powergorilla will work with most major laptop and netbook brands for example Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Lenovo. It is also compatible with virtually any 5V electronic device such as smartphones, iPods, GPS, handheld action cameras, e-readers and much, much more. Please note: To use with Macbook Pro, Macbook Air and Macbook you will need an Apple MagSafe Airline Adaptor or an alternate connection solution. The MagSafe cable is only suitable for Apple Macs incorporating the MagSafe style of connector. To charge the latest iPads you will have to purchase the gorillapad connector.

    Combine with a Solargorilla for an independent power station
    Recharging the Powergorilla

    Simply recharge using the included AC mains charger which works in 150 countries (using the included adapters). Whilst the Powergorilla is plugged into the mains you can still connect other devices to charge in tandem. Alternatively you can use solar power to charge the Powergorilla, via the Solargorilla (sold separately).

    Clear backlit LCD display & single button
    Simple One Button Interface

    One-touch button technology means the Powergorilla is easy to operate. The single button allows you to select the voltage required, turn the device off and on and select various other features. The blue backlit LCD display allows you to monitor how much charge is left, the voltage selected and displays a warning when there is 10% power remaining.

    Included accessories to connect your devices
    Included Accessories

    The Powergorilla comes packed with accessories to help you recharge your devices. Included are 9 mobile tips, 15 netbook and laptop tips, a bespoke neoprene case, international AC mains charger and an In-car female socket adapter. Using the 5V USB port you can plug in your own USB cable to charge devices such as the iPhone. Please see the accessories image for specific types of tips.

    Essential power for adventure, business or travel
    Who’s It Suitable For?

    If you can’t live without your laptop, tablet or electronic gadgets in general, you’ll want a Powergorilla. Ideally suited for those who are regularly off-grid but rely heavily on their portable electronic devices. Equally, the Powergorilla serves a purpose as a must have travel accessory for any business person. When batteries run out or you find yourself away from the mains, Powergorilla can give your devices the juice to keep on going.

    The specs on this battery are great. A Lithium Polymer type battery which is a superior type storage to normal Lithium Ion. 21000mAh of storage charge (though specs dont say what voltage this applies to so assume at its lowest output 5V), weighing just 680g. Operates at high voltage for devices such as laptops and other 12-24V devices. Comes with a plethora of adapters including a very welcome cigarette lighter adapter for many camping 12V devices. Has a rugged tough construction. Comes in quite a nice premium packaging.

    Well dont be FOOLED. The Powergorilla sadly, turns out to be an underperformer for its high price as I will prove and demonstrate its real world performance and value by pitting it against two other Polymer Lithium batteries that I own under exact same conditions in real world use. Furthermore, you can purchase similar polymer lithium batteries here, on Amazon, that outperforms this Gorilla and costs less than half the price. So why, you might ask, do so many reviewers give this 4 or 5 stars? Now I am not a cynical person and I will assume all reviewers are genuinely sincere users and NOT employed by Powertraveller. The reason I think for the 4/5 star ratings is this...most of them believe in the battery remaining level indicator...and that is so understandable yet most times very misleading because most people expect this to be calibrated out of the box. Powergorilla has a lovely large battery level LCD with a 6 bar indicator...very nice...and very off in a very deceptive way as you'll see shortly.

    I know some expert reviews will use voltmeters and stats to make their judgement (which are useful). Well, I did the same initially and all looked good. But that kind of testing never gives the whole story.

    I am a Student and you know what it's like trying to find a Chair in the Lecture Theatre next to a (Cleaners Only...) Power Socket. As I have a MacBook Pro, I have to say that normally the internal battery is more than enough for a good couple of lectures....but for an extended day in the cafe...doing group work etc....this gives me hours more...

    It also charges my phone at the same time...no need for two chargers now...

    My one niggle was that it would charge my iPod Touch (2nd Gen). I spoke to Power Traveller and they sent me different tips for the iPod free of charge for the next morning...These sadly didn't work, but I have spoken to Apple and they think it might be a fault with my iPod Touch...so not the Gorilla's fault!! And it demonstrated that Power Traveller have first rate Customer Service support...

    FURTHER NOTE on iPod Touch 2nd Generation...I have been to visit Power Traveller as they are nearby and I was invited to sort out my charging issue in person. The Service was incredible...The new Power Gorilla has been updated to allow charging on the iPod Touch (Apple have tweaked the charging voltage on some of them). It now charges like a dream....If only all Customer Service were this good!!

    So in summary, if you're looking for a really handy boost to your power for all sorts of gadgets, this product and the manufacturer come A1 recommended by me...

    I wanted a way of extending the battery life of my aged laptop whilst buying a charger that can be used on my next computer as well as the mobile phones and mp3 players I have. It solved my problem with style.

    The Power Gorilla comes with all the connectors I need and many more. The design is compact, stylish, robust and lightweight - even the packaging oozes quality. It is easy to use and extends my laptop's useful battery life by 100% - enough to get me to the next electrical socket or back to the car (it includes a car charger in the kit).

    My next purchase will be the solar attachmentSolar Gorilla Power Device. I will leave the new laptop for a while - at least until windows 7 has been reviewed by users like us.

    OK, so I'm a photographer who was looking for a good power source to take away on trips and use where limited power supply was available.
    I use a Macbook PRO Retina 15" and found it extremely difficult to find a review or any post confirming if this actually worked with the later retina screen MacBooks from apple because it requires an adapter rated 85W ... NOTE most adaptors stating they work fine with the powergorilla are rated at 60W or 65W, even the Lavolta 85W wasn't compatible because the max output was 16V and the mac require 19V minimum, even though it stated it was! I suggest these are fine for earlier models but not the later ones as I found out!

    However with a little bit more searching and I found an XTPower cable with a magsafe 2 adaptor that fits and does the job perfectly, connect it all up, set the powergorilla to 19V and Result!

    The first powergorilla I received was faulty (It would't turn on) and to be honest I'd read a few reviews of customers saying the same thing, so was quite annoyed by this to start with. Thankfully I am not far from their head quarters in Hampshire and after speaking to them, they simply replaced the item the same day, tested and all was good. All in all a pretty good service.

    I've only tested this on a few occasions and thus far it been very good, charging my phone and laptop etc.
    With my laptop fully charged and the powergorilla plugged in I had it running a slideshow for 6.5hrs continuous with the screen on max brightness and I still had approximately 30% power left in the laptop at the end of the day. So I'd estimate the powergorilla gave me an additional 3+ hours of running time, which I am very happy with.
