The nPower PEG personal energy generator – free electricity and personal workout
It’s a bit like a bicycle pump that makes electricity.
Or, if you’ve ever busted your hand and wrist using one, the nPower PEG is more like the battery-less torches that charge themselves up via kinetic energy – kinetic energy you provide by shaking the thing up and down, relying on a weight inside the unit to generate power through friction.
The PEG outputs enough electric juice to charge-up 90% of portable devices, including iPhones and most Nokias, although there’s no battery in the PEG – so if your phone takes an hour to charge, you’ll have to have the PEG jiggling about for an hour.
I can’t possibly imagine any sort of activity that would involve jiggling about for an hour.

To me this sounds like great idea. Seems to be quite big but for great for hikers going out there for week or longer.
Perfect for trekkers. And that’s not nonsense!
Shaking something for an hour for a GSM power? What is wrong with these R&D guys? Or are they releasing preliminary green products that are preparing us for a fart powered charger future? Totally nonsense.
