  1. Hey Matthew, I was just looking on the Powertraveller website and was just reading through your case studies and saw a picture of you charging a macbook pro with your minigorilla.
    I have spend ages researching how to charge a macbook with a external battery pack and your photo has been the only help. Would you be able to tell me how you are doing this and were did you buy the cable. It would be so helpful.

    Thanks, Evan

      Hi Evan – great to hear from you. There are two ways to do this. The first is the official way… buy the Apple airplane power adaptor – which you can then plug into the gorilla 12v ‘lighter’ adaptor. Which works. Or, you can get hold of Power Traveler directly and ask them very nicely where I got my cable from – because Apple don’t let people butcher their power cables and sell them… 😉
