Check out this green gadget, the HYmini portable power generator.
The potential for power is pervasive – perpetually permeating the planet from pole to pole. The sun, that massive orb of glowing plasma fires down countless quintillions of photons which we can directly capture. Those we don’t cause temperature gradients that, when coupled with gravitational tidal effects, cause that heat to be transformed into kinetic energy in the atmosphere. The wind blows in lazy vortices around our big blue marble.
All this power floating around us is there for the taking, so why not make use of it? What we’ve got now is a simple battery pack that can absorb and store 1200mAh of electricity, rechargeable by wind or solar power. The wind mini-generator is the core of the system, housing the battery and the simple windmill. Strap it to your handlebars or your own body via the optional attachments. Supplement your power-generating ability by adding a solar-panel. You can even attach up to four panels and daisy-chain them together for additional oomph!
Green-power is great, but sometimes you need to juice-up when you’re in the dark on a windless day. Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered there, too! Plug the mini-generator into the wall using the supplied power plug, and charge off the wall.
This green gadget is available to buy online for $49.99 from ThinkGeek.
