Originally launched in 2011 after five years of development, the Powermonkey extreme is the culmination of feedback from real power users in some of the most remote locations on the planet. It completely embodies our understanding of the operator’s power and is capable of charging SLR camera batteries, portable DVD players, and much more directly from the unit. This upgrade alone pushes the Powermonkey extreme out ahead of its nearest competitors in terms of charging capabilities, remaining lightweight and compact enough for those counting ounces in their load out. The Powermonkey extreme houses a massive 9000mAh capacity Lithium Polymer battery and offers users real power in a compact, durable shell. The unit is capable of recharging most 5V devices, (including an iPhone/smartphones up to 4 times, a Garmin Edge 800 up to 6 times, standard mobiles up to 8 times, and iPad up to 2 times depending on the model).
