nPowerPEG Converts Kinetic Energy to Power for your Gadgets

by Paul Strauss

The more gadgets I have, the more frequently I have at least one of them run out of power on me. Sure, there are external battery and solar charger accessories, but when you’re schlepping around somewhere when there’s no sun, it can be a drag.

This new device lets you charge your gadgets with your own energy. The nPowerPEG gathers up kinetic energy as you walk, jog, run or bike, and stores up power for recharging your gadgets on the go. It may look a little weird (to me it looks like a hair curler or something), but the nPowerPEG will give you about 1 minute of talk time on an iPhone 3G or iPhone 4 for every 26 minutes you walk. Sure, that may not seem like a lot, but you can always prime the battery by charging it with the induced USB cable. Then, it’ll just always keep topped up from your exercise.

The nPowerPEG retails for $159.99 (USD), and includes one charger tip for a device of your choice. Additional charger tips are available for over 3,000 gadgets. Their first production run is already sold out, but you can get on their reservation list at their website now.
