The Yogen Universal Mobile Charger works via people power. To be more precise you pull a string to recharge the device and in turn it delivers that power to your phone, player or other small portable gadget. As with all these products don’t expect too much electricity without a lot of huffing and puffing, but if you’re stranded on a desert island, hey, sweat it out. $39.99 (including suitable adaptor tips). A foot pedal version called Yogen Max is also on its way. [Thanks Matthew]
Power is generated with the first pull. # Charges devices with only a few minutes of pull/release time. # Yogen’s patented technology charges most mobile devices. # Yogen’s ‘charge/time ratio’ is similar to standard AC wall chargers.
