Wind-Up iPhone Chargers Make Awesome Holiday Gifts

Lately I’ve been searching for the perfect holiday gifts for my tech loving friends and family. I’ve been researching  wind-up chargers and renewable gadgets. Shown here is the Wind Up Mobile Phone Charger / Torch, which is one of the few I’ve found that’s compatible with the iPhone:

“This wind-up phone charger and torch is the end result of an extensive search for the best mini emergency phone charging gadget that we could find. A twist of the wrist means you’ll always be able to charge your mobile in an emergency and there’s a handy light whenever you need it to!”

It is promoted as being small enough to keep in your glovebox, handbag or jacket pocket. So if you’re out hiking or camping or partying you’ll “never be caught in a sticky situation with a flat mobile phone battery” again! The benefit to this model is that it includes adapters for virtually all modern mobile phones, plus it works for iPods too. “Environmentally friendly and money saving, it’s both compact and tough. A solid ergonomic design and powerful internal dynamo make this is an essential gadget for anyone traveling, camping or heading to festivals.

Wind Up Mobile Phone and iPod Charger shown above features:

  • Small, portable design.
  • Built-in torch.
  • Includes connectors for Nokia, Sony Ericsson, BlackBerry / MiniUSB, Motorola, LG and iPod.

Also check out the stock list of wind-up chargers over at Wind-up, which features every type of wind-up technology out there. Will wind-up power be the next big thing in clean technology? Hopefully, these gadgets will start being manufactured with the C2C Philosophy.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
