Answer:
When mounted on my home made clockwork solar tracking tripod (so that the solar gorilla is always facing the sun) it will charge the power gorilla in two to three full days of (UK) sunshine. Output at best is 300 mA at 24V.

Answer:
I have no idea, but it proved pretty ineffective in charging my small netbook in West African conditions (i.e. strong sunlight but also fairly frequent, if fairly high, cloud cover). I had bought it as I was working in an area with no main electric supply or generator.

I had bought it as I was working in an area with no main electric supply or generator. I replaced it with a plug-in charger for a vehicle cigarette lighter, and this proved much more efficient and speedy, at a fraction of the cost. Had it been more effective there would still have been a problem of where to install it securely (the advert showed it sitting on a car bonnet, which seems doubtful, on two fronts - .e. moving the car/why not use a plug-in charger to the car?). In summary, I was extremely disappointed with this expensive device and relieved that Amazon refunded my costs without question. see less

Answer:
Thanks for your enquiry. I did not find the Solargorilla at all practical for charging my Samsung netbook, and returned it for a refund. It took many hours to only half charge it, even in seemingly strong tropical light. However, I should make clear that this was more than 3 years ago - perhaps they have improved the… see more Thanks for your enquiry. I did not find the Solargorilla at all practical for charging my Samsung netbook, and returned it for a refund. It took many hours to only half charge it, even in seemingly strong tropical light. However, I should make clear that this was more than 3 years ago - perhaps they have improved the brand? Judging from my experience, the best bet is to use a cigarette lighter plug charger in a vehicle, if one doesn't have access to 220v, although I subsequently found that petrol generators are easier to find in remote parts of Africa than I had anticipated. see less

Answer:
I doubt the company can give you an answer to that on any given day due to weather and time of year. It depends on how sunny or overcast it is. On a bright April day here in the tropics (our summer) it will recharge my iPhone 6's flat battery in a little over four hours.

Answer:
Yes it will, it will charge in indirect diffused light also, however the strength of the light however will alter the amount of the charge, so bright direct sunlight will charge much quicker than poor diffused light. This in turn can mean that items get an incomplete charge and you could certainly not power anything di… see more Yes it will, it will charge in indirect diffused light also, however the strength of the light however will alter the amount of the charge, so bright direct sunlight will charge much quicker than poor diffused light. This in turn can mean that items get an incomplete charge and you could certainly not power anything directly in poor light. The best option is to use the solar to charge a power cell (does not need to be a Power Traveller product) and then use that to power/recharge your technology items. Also remember that certain car windscreens prevent it from working completely in case you planned to leave it on the dashboard. All other solar restrictions also apply so the hotter the unit gets the worse it charges up. All of that said (and I mean it to be informative not negative) I would ot be without mine as used correctly it works well. see less

Answer:
Sorry but I don't know I gave up with this ages ago as try as I might I couldn't get it to work with the HP laptop that I had at the time. I emailed for help but never received a reply. Finally I gave it to a charity shop so hopefully someone somewhere has found a use for it.
