Australians heading off the beaten track, or even just outside the office, can now venture forth without having to worry about the limited battery life of their laptop, mobile phone, camera, MP3 player or other portable device, thanks to the arrival of the Powertraveller range of charging devices.

Whether you’re sailing on Sydney Harbour, trekking through the Warrumbungles or camping out beyond the Black Stump, Powertraveller has a solution to keep all your mobile gadgets powering on.

Designed for life on the move, Powertraveller products have the names to match, ranging from motormonkey and powermonkey to powerchimp and solargorilla.

Powertraveller’s chargers operate in 150 different countries around the globe, with existing customers ranging from wildlife photographers and mountain climbers through to professional athletes and naval officers working in submarines.

Powertraveller CEO, Jerry Ranger, said their charging devices set people free to go wherever they want without having to compromise on the technology they choose to take with them.

“There is no environment in which Powertraveller cannot deliver results. The fact that two of our chargers are solar-powered means they can generate and store power anytime the sun is shining, which also makes them an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional mains or battery power sources,” he said.

Free Power from the Sun
Power is literally as free as sunlight with Powertraveller’s solarmonkey, a lightweight and portable solar charging kit which also includes the solarnut storage unit to reserve redundant energy for use at night or when the clouds roll in. And Powertraveller has incorporated its award-winning solar technology into powermonkey-eXplorer and solargorilla so you never need run out of power again when you’re away from the office.

Powertraveller’s solar products are especially well suited to the Australian market, and have the potential to save people money as they can use these products to recharge their mobile devices instead of plugging into a power outlet. With the sheer number of mobile gadgets people now own, this could amount to a considerable saving.

If you’re on the move and need your mobile gadgets to go the distance, Powertraveller has the answer with its portable power solutions that offer mains, battery, USB and solar power to recharge most popular mobile phones, cameras, GPS units, games consoles and iPods/MP3/MP4 players, and two products will also charge laptops/netbooks, so you only need to carry one recharger for all your mobile equipment.

For example, harnessing the power of the sun the solargorilla features a 20 volt and 5 volt USB socket, making it the ultimate renewable power station for your laptop, netbook, mobile phone, iPod, handheld games consoles and many more devices.

“Powertraveller has it all – quality, reliable technology that’s been ruggedised for life on the move with outstanding energy capture and management capabilities to deliver power where and when you need it – no exceptions,” Mr Ranger said.

“We’re delighted to bring this outstanding range to Australian customers and introduce a new dimension of experience to mobile technology users.”
