Solar Gorilla has the same shape and technology with PowerMonkey Solar Power Portable Charger which we covered weeks ago. It’s only the size that makes Solar Gorilla capable to charge laptop and other same size devices (up to 24 volts).
Now something has make sense to me. I’m always asking what the different between Power Gorilla and Solar Gorilla is. Now I’ve found the puzzle pieces and going to show you what are them:
I always thought that both of them is called Solar Gorilla, just like the perception when first covering the PowerMonkey Solar Charger. Well, I was wrong…
Solar Gorilla can charger everything from 0 – 24 volts electronic with sun power. From a large laptop to the smallest cellphone. Practically easy to use, just plugin the cable and it’s done. Very light weight, but a little bit huge to bring around. Not like the PowerMonkey which is pretty small to fit in a pocket.
Solar Gorilla will be launch at this Q4 2008. So if you are interested for saving some more electricity bill, prepare some spare of your money (price still undisclosed) to buy Solar Gorilla on this end of 2008.
(while powermonkey’s price is around $130, Solar Gorilla will cost you around $500-$800. I guess… )
My guessing is wrong again! Well, the price is not around $500-$800. It’s only about $224 (£140) and you can have it now! Just check out our PowerTraveler Monkey Family post for more detail.

You might feel that price is too high for you. No problem, here is a good alternative for solar charging your laptop. It’s called High-Capacity Solar Charger! (only $150 flat!)
