I am often asked whilst I am out hiking the mountains for days on end… “How do you manage to tweet all the time, especially when you are not near a plug socket for your phone”?
Well, yes I do hike and tweet, and yes, when camping along for days I do not have the customary ability to charge from the wall. The answer? I always travel with my Powermonkey Explorer. With the solar panel attached to my rucksack and a little robust pack being charged as I hike in the daylight. Ready to charge my phone and other devices when I wish.
I was very kindly invited by Diana (@adamsconsulting) of the great bitrebels site to write an article on the gadget. If you want a detailed rundown on the Powermonkey and how I use it please read here > The Ultimate Power To Hike and Tweet.
Now then, would you like to get your hands on one for free? I have a brand new boxed Powermonkey Explorer with very kind thanks to Powertraveller.com (Twitter: @Powermonkeys) and if you want a chance to own it all you need to do is add a comment below stating where in the wilderness you would love to get out and use it The winner will be picked totally at random on random.org on Sunday 24 April 2011 at 7 pm GMT.
