Portable power and solar charger manufacturer Powertraveller Ltd put their powermonkey extreme through its paces on their Chinese distributor Beijing Walkmai’s stand at ISPO Beijing earlier this month.
A powermonkey extreme with its aquastrap accessory was submerged in a fish tank (complete with live fish!) for five whole days and charged an iPad whilst simultaneously being charged itself via AC mains. The aquastrap ensures that the powermonkey extreme remains watertight (to IP65) whilst it charges 5V devices.
This neat trick was a real show-stopper and demonstrates perfectly the leading-edge technology that puts Powertraveller ahead of the curve in portable power manufacturing.
