Voltmaker: Spin For Power

bill-swift - June 4, 2013

So you're in the middle of nowhere and your phone is dead. You can either wait for the bears to come eat you or...give the Voltmaker a few spins to recharge your phone battery. That's right, folks: this nifty little gadget might just save your life by keeping you connected to humanity by giving your mobile some much-needed juice when you need it the most.

The Voltmaker is basically a handheld, portable generator that charges up your phone when you spin the attached metal rod round and round. It deviates from other hand-cranked generators since you're not turning the crank to generator power; you're just making a spinning motion while gripping the device to generate energy instead.

Spinning for two minutes will power up your device enough to make an emergency call. And by spin, we mean as described above, and not the other kind of spin that's more fun and commonly done during sexy smexy time...

The Voltmaker is currently up for funding on Indiegogo.

Get It: $69
