In the desert, on safari, up a mountain or simply on the move, the solargorilla portable solar charger gives your powergorilla juice anywhere under the sun. solargorilla is also a viable charging option for laptops under 40 watts and it can even charge your mobile phone, iPod, handheld games consoles and many more devices from the 5V USB output.
solargorilla works via two PV (photovoltaic) solar panels, which generate electric current when they are exposed to sunlight. The solar panels are made of glass which greatly improves the performance of the solargorilla as well as making the aesthetics of the unit better. 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.
Note: solargorilla is a charging option. It is primarily designed to be used in conjunction with the powergorilla and may not work with some laptops over 40 watts directly. It relies on the UV intensity of the sun. Therefore, at certain times of the year it may not be suitable for use in the Northern Hemisphere unless combined with the powergorilla. The solargorilla solar charger has been trialled successfully in the Southern Hemisphere by aid agencies, emergency services, the military and adventure travellers, where power is a crucial element of their communications strategy.
To clean, only wipe with a water-damp clean cloth. Do not use chemical cleaning solutions.

The powergorilla laptop charger will give you an extra 2-5 hours of power, depending on your laptop's specification, and over 20 hours on various other electronic devices.
powergorilla will work with devices up to 24Volts - so from your laptop, right the way down to your mobile phone or iPod. Just select which voltage you require; 5V, 8.4V, 9.5V, 12V, 16V, 19V or 24V and the LCD screen will indicate which setting has been chosen, then connect your device and start charging. You can even daisy-chain, so whilst the powergorilla is charging your laptop, you can charge the powergorilla from the mains power supply. Or charge your laptop and your mobile phone simultaneously.
One-touch button technology means the powergorilla charger for laptops is easy to use and its sleek, aluminium casing with shock resistant rubber protection strips makes it a stylish accessory for your laptop.
The powergorilla has input voltage auto recognition which means that if you use your own AC laptop charger (between 16 - 24V only), the powergorilla will automatically detect the voltage level and set the LCD display accordingly. It also has a permanent on feature so that when the powergorilla detects it has been connected to a device, the LCD screen will flash and the user can double-click the on/off button to permanently lock the powergorilla on.
By selecting the 8.8 option on the LCD screen, the USB will be locked permanently on - this is beneficial if charging a low power consumption device from USB.
When used in conjunction with the solargorilla, you'll have a totally portable power station - perfect for when you're "off-grid". The powergorilla also features solargorilla auto recognition, which means when you connect it to the solargorilla, the powergorilla will shut off unnecessary internal circuits to improve charging time by up to 2 hours - confirmed by the solar symbol in the LCD screen.
The powergorilla has also been on field tests out in Afghanistan, Madagascar, Zambia, Antarctica and Norway. Being subjected to extremely hot and very cold temperatures, the powergorilla has successfully charged numerous laptops and other power-hungry devices and is a favourite amongst our brand ambassadors.
Please note: To use with Macbook Pro, Macbook Air and Macbook you will need an Apple MagSafe Airline Adaptor or an alternate connection solution. The MagSafe cable is only suitable for Apple Macs incorporating the MagSafe style of connector. If you are unsure if your Mac uses Magsafe, please email firstname.lastname@example.org - you may require the L77D tip for the older Mac laptops (such as Powerbook.). The MagSafe Airline adaptor cable will only POWER laptops, not charge them. For an alternative connection solution to the Apple MagSafe Airline Adaptor - please contact email@example.com. Please remember, the powergorilla is not a toy and should be treated with as much respect as you would give your laptop.
