    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Powertraveller Solarmonkey Adventurer Solar Charger is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a durable Solar Charger! I have been searching for a solar charger with the perfect balance of durability and lightweight... I think I've finally found it with the Solar Monkey Adventurer! After a month of hard, continuous use, instead of writing a full review I thought I'd just pass on the short note I sent to the company that manufactures the SolarMonkey product, "Power Traveller": Dear Powertraveller - I am an avid backpacker and I've owned a number of solar panels including Powerfilm, Goal Zero and Eton products. I have only three requirements: 1. The unit has to hang on my pack and charge an onboard battery, 2. It has to be sturdy and, 3. It has to be light weight. The products listed above have all fallen short, especially in the durability department - but I have to say that your Solar Monkey Adventurer solar charger panel is, by far, the most durable and reliable solar charging device that I have used in the backcountry. From scrambling rocky peaks in the High Sierras to backpacking in 100deg + temperatures in the Mojave, and bushwhacking in the Southern California chaparral, your device has never let me down! Keep up the great work designing durable, high quality products for REAL backcountry pursuits! �?�now, all I need is for you guys to high-tail it on developing and offering the iPhone 5 "monkey tail" cord!! (currently I am using the Apple charging cord included with the phone so it's no biggie) Thanks again! After putting this device through it's paces I can't say enough good things about this product... Highly recommended!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Solar Charger I let it sit in the windshield of my car and when i need it i have it right there. It lasts a long time after charging too. I wish it would come with a wall charger, in case I needed it for portability at night.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment! The Solarmonkey Adventurer is powerful for its small size. It charged my iPhone 4S quickly. It's also light weight. I just hang it from my bag and go. I highly recommend this product. It helps me stay off the grid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solarmonkey Adventurer is AWESOME!! This all in one solar charger rocks! You can charge it in the sun or charge it at home and be ready to be on the go. I use it on the ski slopes, hiking and mountaineering to charge my portable electronics. It's is lightweight, easy to use and reliable. Power Traveller is making the BEST solar equipment out there.
