Tweeting and Adventuring – Powermonkey Explorer Giveaway

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”?

PowerMonkey5 Tweeting and Adventuring - Powermonkey Explorer GiveawayWell, 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 (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 on Sunday 24 April 2011 at 7 pm GMT.

  1. Hi paul, this would be good for those tweets or updates when kayaking or hiking around sunny Guernsey #LoveGuernsey

  2. Powermonkey? I never heard of it but since you're putting in on your blog heck I would love to use it everywhere I go. This tool could be very useful for traveler, researcher, and also field worker like me. I would love to use it around my country Indonesia which electricity distribution for several island still bad. Some areas and teritory need to be explore but it could be a problem if your GPS and other device running out of power. Thanks!

  3. I do a lot of events for Charity. All my training is outdoors, and often away from powersockets. This would be vital for me staying safe & in touch with all using my android phone. Plus giving live updates/tracking whilst doings an event. perfect piece of kit!

  4. I would LOVE to get out and use the AWESOME powermonkey from the top of MT Lafayette where I could share its invigorating beauty with the world! Please pick me, it will be put to good use!
