Powermonkey Explorer 2 – ULTRA-TOUGH WATERPROOF MOBILE CHARGER
A single day’s trip easily outstrips my smartphone battery capacity (Galaxy Edge), modern smartphones eat power!
Consequently, I (Lyle) carry loads of spare batteries for my essential additional power:
- 1 x Samsung flat lithium
- 6 x AA batteries, in a caddy, for my satnav(GPS) and head-torch
- Waterproof box
This system’s BIG weakness, other than the bulk and the faff, is that whilst all of my equipment is waterproof, as soon as I take the backs of this kit to change the batteries it’s exposed to the wet!
Scott’s been testing loads of alternative power supplies, as always in the most arduous of situations – mountain rescue. So when he said that the winner was head and shoulders above the rest I couldn’t wait to give it a shot. It’s become one of those pieces of kit I now wonder how I managed without before; fully charged it has enough power to fully recharge my smartphone, satnav plus my head-torch!
