The Expedition is also a scalable portable charging device, meaning further accessories will become available allowing you to charge via wind, water and butane gas!
What sort of charge can I expect?
Crank Arms Charging
10 minutes of cranking charges the Expedition internal battery by 1%, which may not sound like much but that is about 7% charge of an iPhone 5s - 40 minutes talk time. So you can crank as much or as little power as you need and then fold the crank away when not required.
Use the sun to charge the Powermonkey Expedition via a solar panel housed in a very strong, lightweight, aluminum case, which has been designed specifically to work seamlessly with the Expedition. The Expedition outputs 5 watts (5V 1Amp) and is capable of recharging the Expedition in around 12-15 hours in good sunlight. The use of aluminum isn’t just for its looks, rather the aluminium acts as a heat-sync and makes solar panel charging not only more efficient, but also more durable. Thanks to MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker) technology the panel can charge devices in low light too.
AC Mains Charging
The Expedition can be fully charged, via AC mains, in 12 hours so plug it in the night before and you’ll be well placed for your adventure ahead.
What it will charge?
The Expedition features 12V DC and 5V USB outputs so will charge everything from iPads/tablets, two-way radios, satellite phones and smartphones, to GPS, head lamps and SLR cameras, plus many other devices.
