Product description

Product Description

Powertraveller Powermonkey Discovery 5V Portable Charger:
Housed in a stylish aluminium shell, the powermonkey discovery is a portable charger for devices up to 5V, offering users real power while they’re on the move. The powermonkey discovery is capable of charging an iPhone / smartphone up to 3 times, a GPS up to 3 times, an extra 10 hours gaming on handheld games consoles, as well as being able to charge many more 5V devices.

Works With:
The powermonkey discovery is capable of charging virtually any 5V device – these are small gadgets that can be recharged via USB i.e. smartphones / iPhones, standard mobile phones, iPods / MP3 players, e-readers, Sat Navs, portable GPS systems, handheld games consoles, head lamps and more. To use with Apple iPhone / iPod, simply connect to the powermonkey discovery unit via the Apple-supplied white sync / charge cable.

To work out the voltage of your device:
If your device is charged via a USB socket (either directly into a computer socket or via a USB AC power plug) – the maximum voltage of your device will be 5 Volts, therefore the powermonkey discovery is perfect. Please refer to the user guide of your device where the voltage will be stated.

Battery Capacity and Charge Times:
The powermonkey discovery incorporates a state-of-the-art 3500mAh lithium polymer battery and this will output power at the same rate as if you were charging your device from AC mains power.

Stylish and Compact Design:
The powermonkey discovery is made from precision-engineered aluminium and makes a stylish accessory to your electronic device. Weighing just 107g, this sleek portable charger remains small enough to fit into bags and pockets without being obtrusive.

Who’s It Suitable For?
If you can’t live without your smartphone, iPod, games consoles or other small portable device, the powermonkey discovery will ensure you never run out of power whilst you’re on the move.

    The only criticism i have is that I did not discover the on / off switch until after I was convinced it didn't work. It can be tricky to see if it is on or off.

    I am a huge Power Traveller fan! I own/have owned at least six of their products over the last few years. I quite liked the look of this one - a departure from the rugged plastic finish for what looks from the pictures to be an apple build quality product. Overall the product is great. I particularly like the fact that it recharges itself via USB and the convenient size with great power reserves keeps my iPhone nicely charged all day despite very heavy usage. My only negative is back to the build - many will like it and it is clear that Power Traveller have tried to build something that complements an Apple product; however, in that respect it misses the mark. Apple are the masters and next to an iPhone it really looks and feels quite cheep. (Which it is - can't argue fantastic value - I personally would have gladly paid an extra ten or twenty pounds for a true premium construction and build). Essentially the case is a little like a thin sardine can with a thin stainless lid containing the inards. On mine at least the finish was slightly pitted and unfinished in places with the USB port quite loosely sat behind the hole in the can. While the tolerances of construction are in fact pretty good this product just goes to show what stunning construction Apple have managed to achieve. Also given that this is most likely going to sit in a pocket or briefcase at some point and be rubbing against your iPhone the front facing edges of the can are a little harsh for my liking. Sorry - A lot of words about a minor point. I would definitely buy the product again and I would describe it as Excellent value for money. If I could have given 4.5 stars i would have.

    Ideal handy power on the move, no need to worry about your kit running out of juice again. I recommend to anyone that hasn't got a 50 mile long charge lead.

    Anybody with a smart phone knows only too well that the battery will not last all day. I have been looking for a backup battery for a while now. I chose the Powertraveller Powermonkey Discovery Portable Charger, because it has a metal casing and looks robust. This backup battery will charge your iPhone twice and which is more than enough for a days use outside the home or office. It comes very handy when you're only holiday. Sure the larger solar powered models may have more capacity, but there isn't really that much sun in the UK and it would mean carrying a large unit and would need to be charged via the mains anyway. The size of this backup battery is no bigger than your 90's candy bar phone and great if you're a believer in travelling light. It will charge up your phone at the same speed as the mains, but you would need to use the charging/USB cable that comes with your phone.

    What I don't like about it is that it is a nuisance to get charging. It doesn't always work the first time. It seems to work fine in the UK, but when you're abroad and you're fiddling with it for some time, it is a bit annoying. Also, a full charge takes several hours, so you plug it in before you go to sleep and it will be ready by the time you have breakfast. I would take a spare travel adaptor with you as you're probably going to need to charger up other devices or your camera batteries. Another thing I don't like about it is the lack of a lead for iPhones. You get a whole host of adaptors, which look a bit flimsy, but nothing for iPhones or iPods etc.
