Kinesis K3 Charger – Emergency 3-in-1 recharger

Image

The Kinesis K3 Charger is what’s known in the biz as a “tribrid”, a hybrid with three parts. It’s a solar charger, a wind generator and a plain battery charger. If the sun’s out, lie the K3 on it’s back and the solar cells will charge the internal battery, if it’s windy stand it up and let the wind generator do all the work. If it’s sunny and windy then you’re all set and both will do the recharging. If you’ve got AC or a PC, plug it into the mains or a USB port and recharge it the old fashioned way. A row of LEDs along the side will tell you how full the battery is.

When you’re out in the field, you can recharge most things via the swappable recharging tips which stow neatly into the base of the unit. The built-in battery can put out 5 Volts at 1 Amp and the battery has a massive 4,000 mAh rating which will recharge a mobile phone 10 times (apparently). And because it’s an emergency charger it will work from -20C (-4F) to 55C (131F). You can pick one up from here for US$99.95

3-in-1 tribrid charging ability for collecting and storing power from wind, sun, or AC wall plug. Ideal for mobile phones, iPods/mp3 players, iPhone, smartphones/PDAs, portable gaming devices, GPS units, digital cameras, Bluetooth headsets, and more.
