I bought the extreme to upgrade from my previous Power Monkey as I had a 9 day trek in the Nepalese mountains planned and am so glad I did! The other trekkers laughed when I told them I had a Power Monkey with me but they soon changed their tune!! Two days in and the Extreme had lept to the rescue of many a camera and phone with people sheepishly asking if it could help in their hour of need. The power it holds is quite amazing, charging so many different bits of kit and so easy to recharge even using the solar panel in the glorious Nepal sun!! The great improvement over my previous model being the USB socket allowing so many more items to be charged than before and cutting out the need for the special "tips".

Am I happy that I bought this? Yes
Is it good value for money? Yes if you're a tech addict.
Would I recommend it? Yes I have and others have bought it!

All in all a great bit of kit, the only downside is turning the thing on can be a bit fiddley at times using the swipe pad but that is more a getting used to it issue than anything else.

I am very pleased with this charger, as it does what it says on the tin. I was away camping for just over six weeks and this charger kept both mine & my wife's mobile phone and ipad fully charged and usable for the whole period. Very robust and well made.

The battery capacity is huge compared to previous models and I've charged my toshiba at300 tablet with this unit. The unit is light weight waterproof with an accessory from power monkey. I almost emptied the battery of battery of power and it took two days of good sunlight to recharge it. If your looking for a high capacity mobile battery charging whilst on the move/backpacking then consider the power monkey extreme.

I bought one of these direct from Powertaveller in 2014, figuring that it would have the most up to date circuitry inside.

Only got around to using it properly in early April 2015 when it kept my phone fully charged up during Berwick upon Tweed to Dundee coastal walk. I wanted to record the trip with one of those walking apps you put on your phone so gps was running constantly during walk time.

On cloudier mornings there was a net loss of 5% to 6% (except the morning where the cloud was exceptionally low and dark) until the clouds thinned, compared to 10% per hour loss with phone unplugged and running under the same conditions. I found this was the case for usually the first four hours (on the trail at 7am) but once 11am came around battery % increased and would be holding full capacity in under 2 hours. Something else I worked out, it was well worth spending 5 minutes before setting off to get it properly attached on the backpack - I had tied it a bit loose on one occasion and the panel slipped to face directly behind me therefore was poorly angled toward the sun.

During testing around the house I found the panel would charge the phone much faster than when plugged into USB port on pc.

Otherwise, the box contains all the tips and wall socket combinations you could ever require.

So to sum it up: Yes, in Scotland, during the first two weeks of April, it did the job.

Did a 5 week cycle tour this year and I'm so pleased I bought this before leaving. I met a couple of cyclists last year who were using one and I was quite envious. It is a professional bit of kit. I carried a lot of AA rechargeable batteries, I bought a small USB charger which would charge 1, 2, 3 or 4 AA/AAA batteries fast. Charging these and my LG smartphone (and spare phone battery) covered all my needs. Had the Powermonkey in my Ortlieb RackPack bag and the solar panels strapped to the top, worked perfectly.

This product is rubbish. Don't buy one.
The display got stuck showing a read out of 46% battery life. Now it doesn't show anything, just a blank screen.
The power out port is stated to be highly water resistant but the rubber cover flap doesn't even clip shut tight over the exposed USB port.
I purchased it in May 2015. Ive used it twice, recharged it twice. I want to return it but Amazon states that it is not eligible for return after only 4 weeks after buying it. If I had bought it from a high street store it would have an automatic one year warrantee.

Tremenous power availability during 12 day trek to Everest Base Camp. Charged my and friends' iPhones, cameras etc. topped up with solar panel during the day, think my connecting wire took a bash, which may have affected solar charging. Another friend had one too, and got a better solar charge than I did.
