The next generation of portable solar charger – complete with a monkey nut!
The Solar Monkey is the successor to the highly acclaimed Power Monkey Explorer, using the same high gain solar panel system, but with the added ability to save collected energy into a smaller capacity device, the "Monkey Nut". This means that when the clouds come out you can still achieve maximum charge, and it also stores extra standby power so you’ll always be able to recharge that all-important portable device, make that crucial call and listen to your favourite iPod playlist one extra time.
This solar charger works a treat in direct sunlight, but will even charge from any non-fluorescent light for instant power on the move, at home or at work.
The Solar Monkey comes with a range of connector tips as well as a travel pouch and storage case, making it the essential travel companion that you’ll soon not be able to do without.

I'm a bit confused about the difference between the power monkey and solar monkey especially as the solar is listed as the sucessor but it cheaper. Can you help? Thanks
A: The Solarmonkey is indeed the sucessor - it uses the same high gain solar panel system, but with the capacity to store collected extra energy within the 'monkey nut' device, meaning that you can still charge your gadgets when the clouds come out. It is more compact than the Powermonkey Explorer, which is reflected in the price. It is worth noting that the Powermonkey's larger solar panel results in a faster charge; and the slave on the Powermonkey also has a display allowing you to see the level of charge stored. I hope this helps. Jo.

Q: I am planning to walk part of the SW Coatal Path and am looking for a weatherproof solar powered mobile phone charger which I can attach to my rucksack. Will the Solarmonkey do the job?I am having difficulty finding a reasonably priced solar charger for backpackers.
A: Hi, from the sound of it, the most suitable charger for your needs is the Freeloader Globetrotter. It is a very versatile piece of kit and the supercharger can clip onto a backpack and has a fully weather resistant case. I hope this helps. Marty

Q: I have an oldish motorola(w220) and an apple i-touch Will the solar-monkey charge both I'm finding it hard to make a decision on which solar charger to get. I'm already saving on my electricity bill as I have a solar radio for bathroom,kitchen an allotment so really want to get as off the grid as I can but not have to fill the window-ledges with chargers
A: Hi, the Solar Monkey comes with an Apple approved iPod connector and a Motorola tip (if it's not the right tip you may be able to use the usb/mini usb connector). As such I think this product does best fit your needs. I hope this helps, Marty.
