We're working out what we think - we'll add our view here!
Power Traveller says:
The revolutionary motormonkey in-car charger has self-sensing technology that can recognise when an Apple iPad has been connected and changes the power settings accordingly. Lightweight and compact as the original, the motormonkey provides a complete charging solution for most 5V devices.
The slim line design means that the motormonkey in-car charger is unobtrusive and you can leave it plugged into your cigarette lighter when you're not using it, without worrying about draining your car's battery. The motormonkey is designed to be permanently located in the car's socket, sitting passively until you need it. Only when your mobile or other electronic device is connected does the internal intelligent circuit activate the supply of power to the unit. When your device is fully charged, motormonkey will automatically shut down - ready for when you need it next.
You can also charge your 5V Powertraveller portable chargers such as the powermonkey range and the solarmonkey adventurer via the motormonkey.
The motormonkey in-car charger will fully support Apple iPods & iPhones via the motormonkey's USB socket by using your white sync / charge cable supplied with your Apple product.
Please Note: The barrel of the motormonkey V3 will read "MM V2". Please ignore this, you have the latest product which you can determine by the fact that the motormonkey is supplied without any adaptor tips. We will be changing the engraving on the barrel of the new motormonkey shortly.
