I've recently bought the Power Monkey Explorer.
I paid a bit more than the web-sites listed price as I did not shop around at all.
I've been using it to charge my phone as it basically acts as my PC to access net, read, Music and films. I needed a solar charger so I could run my
phone in the event of the bridge going down. I can live with not making calls but if I had no music, films or books I probably wont stay sane for
Plus with the downloaded books/files on survival etc I would loose access to this information.
So, I've departed with my £65.00 in exchange for this device. It has a small solar charger which is 13m x 9cm when closed and fold out to collect a
charge. I can charge my phone directly or opt to charge the powermonkey which comes with the kit. This is like a battery which can hold a charge so
you can power/charge your phone at night/in a cave/hiding down the sewers etc. The weight is about 100grams.
It comes with a lot of adapters to.
Ill also probably look at the cheaper chargers I seen that are about £15.00 to £20.00 as a means of backup as people like me who are "too" reliant
on "How To books/guides" need to be able to access this info in the event of things going bad. Hopefully it wont be a case of solarflares etc...
There's only so many actual/ Physical books you can carry.
