Solar and Wind Powered Portable Charger Debuts at CES
January 10th, 2009 by Jerry James Stone
It can power a typical cell phone 5-times over on a full charge! Um, where do I sign up?
And while it’s designed to harvest the power of nature, it’s also quite practical. It also includes an AC adapter for when Mother Nature isn’t cooperating.
You can stand the device up or hang it from your bike. I like that idea since I sit next to a big sunny window at work – though I wish the wind turbine would also operate as a fan.
The device is expected to run for about $100. Engadget has a nice video of the device from CES here. LED indicators let you know how much juice the device has, and it has internal storage for multiple adapter tips.
