My Gear – PowerMonkey Mobile Charger

[26 March] My iPod been running out of juice a lot lately as I’ve been watching quite a bit of video podcast on it and it really drains the battery fast. That was pretty frustrating until my sister got me the PowerMonkey mobile charger from PowerTraveller on her way back from San Francisco (at the airport). This charger comes with -

1 x PowerMonkey Unit
1 x Universal Mains adaptor
Adaptor for Nokia and Mini Nokia, Motorola V66, Samsung E900, Siemens C25 and Sony Ericsson wide connector
1 x Mini USB for Motorola Razr V series, Blackberry and Bluetooth headsets
1 x Direct iPod adaptor
1 x USB smart phones, PDA and other devices
1 x Connector for Sony PSP and most digital cameras
1 x Black travel pouch

The capacity of the PowerMonkey is 2200mAh, although less than the Tekkeon myPower Go MP1500 I have, the included iPod connector sure comes in handy (never order the iPod connector from Tekkeon). Another great thing about the charger is that it could hold its charge without leakage for up to 6 months. The PowerMonkey is available on ExpanSys, link here.

[Updated: 3 April] Turned out that the iPhone/iPod charger that came with the PowerMonkey did not work with my iPod Touch. Sent a email to the manufacturer (info@powertraveller.com) last week and they replied that Apple had recently changed their charging connections and because of that, a new connector tip with a new chip was developed and they promised to send me one for free.

Finally got the new tip today and Voila, it works. Just in time for my Singapore trip in 2 weeks.

  2. Please refer to the update part of the post. You have to contact the manufacturer to get the latest iPod connector tip. The one that came with it only works for oler iPods (Nano etc).
