PowerTraveller Solargorilla Solar Panel
In the desert, on safari, up a mountain or simply on the move, the solargorilla gives you power anywhere under the sun. Solargorilla's 24 volt and 5 volt USB socket make it the ultimate renewable power station for your laptop, mobile phone, iPod and many more devices.
Solargorilla works via two PV (photovoltaic) solar panels, which generate electric current when they are exposed to light. The green LED on the solargorilla indicates the strength of charge - the more UV intensity - the better it will work! The technically advanced solar panels ensure superb power and reliable performance, all housed in a tough outer casing.
The Solargorilla is compatible with most laptops, mobile phones, iPods, PDAs, handhelds games consoles and Sat Navs. You can even use the solargorilla to recharge the Powergorilla - simply attach it using the 2m extension cable and the L52D tip. A total portable power station!
Solargorilla is a charging option and it relies on the UV intensity of the sun. Therefore, in Winter time it may need to be left in the sun for longer periods and it is recommeneded to be combined with the Powergorilla. The Solargorilla has been trialled successfully by aid agencies, emergency services, the military and adventure travellers, where power is a crucial element of their communications strategy. The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation suffered communications problems in the past and the products have been hugely acclaimed as being a long overdue solution to power issues. The solargorilla was extensively field-tested in South Africa where it powered a number of laptops for a week at a time.
