Ric Potter and the Powermonkey Extreme

Ric Potter is a British Mountain Guide based in Chamonix, France and North Wales, UK. Five years in development, the powermonkey extreme is the culmination of feedback from real power users in some of the most remote locations on the planet and embodies Powertraveller's understanding of customer requirements in the outdoor and adventure travel market.

Absolutely works!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

My most recent use of the Powermonkey Extreme was on a 7 day backpacking trip into the Weminuche Wilderness near Durango, CO. I know that many go backpacking to leave stuff that represents work, especially their phone, behind. I get it. But when I explain why I take it, that I turn off the phone feature on my iPhone 5s, it stops being a 'phone' and turns into my music player (love music on the trail and in my tent at night), my star chart, my books (I can put 1000 books on my phone...why choose?), gps with satellite images and topo mapping, video camera, fitness tracker, games (guilty pleasure especially during a 4 hour downpour), alarm clock for early morning summit attempts, and so on. You get the picture...

I also love my Suunto watch that helps track my mileage and where my next campsite is. I have a set of bluetooth headphones that I take to keep the wires at bay. In the past, my headphone wires always got tangled in the straps of my pack. Frustrating.

All these need power! The best unit I've found for backcountry power is the Powermonkey Extreme. It is super rugged, waterproof (is rated for submersion in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes), is super efficient in creating power from sunlight and transferring that power to the battery, and uses the latest in battery technology. I think the best part is it's ruggedness. I consider this as essential a piece of gear as my stove, mattress, and trekking poles. It is designed for the backcountry!

I've used many solar and battery products, and none have been as reliable and dependable nor as easy to use as the Powermonkey Extreme. If you need power, I wouldn't look anywhere else! Now if I could only plug it into my legs...

Absolutely works!

Great for charging all my electronics

I absolutely love this solar charger. I am carrying my iPhone, Go Pro, & speakers in the backcountry. I just strap the solar panel to my pack and stick the battery in my lid and let it charge all day while I am on the move. The panel can handle rain and the battery is waterproof. The battery has a large capacity in a small packaging which is unusually in the solar charging world. I usually get about 4-6 iPhone charges out of a full battery. You can also charge 2 devices at the same time. I usually plug in my phone and what ever else I want to charge when I go to bed and when I wake up everything is charged up for the day. I absolutely love this piece of gear. I take it with me everywhere I go.
