Ifan Looks Ridiculous but Will Charge Your iPhone With Wind-Power

by Range

This has to be one of the  strangest ways of recharging your iPhone I’ve seen. The iFan claims to recharge your iPhone using only wind power, even it it does look slightly ridiculous. I’d probably prefer a crank of some sort to charge my iPhone.

The iFan has a large computer fan at the top and it was built by Tjeerd Veenhoven. Incredibly, this isn’t a concept. Tjeerd actually built this thing. He says that it takes him 6 hours to recharge his iPhone. While this seems pretty long, if you’ve haven’t got access to an outlet – and you’ve got some wind –  it’s a clean and green way of getting a recharge.

Charging times could be reduced by redesigning the fan blade to be more efficient. It might work well in places where there isn’t much electricity, like a desert island of some sort.
