To charge the most modern portable devices no longer need to search for an outlet. Just put a new alternator nPower PEG vertically in a bag, briefcase or backpack and take a walk with him for about an hour.

NPower PEG creators of Tremont Electric Company promise that this process will provide battery charging about 80%. In addition, it will be useful not only to man, but also the environment. As is known, the current consumption of electricity – is the extra greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

In Tremont Electric calculated that if all of these devices to provide 23.2 million Americans who use a variety of mobile gadgets, and walk for at least an hour a day, the total savings would be 25.4 million kilowatts of electricity. For comparison, this amount would be enough to 21,000 households for a year.

Running a new power generator of walking on the same principle as the handheld flashlights that are charged if they are properly shaken. Used in them the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction discovered by Faraday has, to date, may well claim to be a simple converter “human energy”.

Demonstrated the new product at CES 2009, held in Las Vegas from 8 to 11 January this year.


The device is 23 centimeters long and weighs about 250 grams a pair of cylinders, which move relative to each other while walking. nPower PEG collects kinetic energy, providing mobile power electronics is no worse than a regular wall socket.
Included with the generator are interchangeable adapters through which to nPower PEG can connect a variety of MP3-players, mobile phones, digital cameras, GPS-navigators. In a short time (when it is, is not specified), the generator can be ordered at a price of $ 149.

One negative: so far not included any attachment to belts or sleeves, which would suspend the nPower PEG clothing or directly on the body.

Other Specifications: Power Output device is 4 watts, operating temperature range from -30 to +60 ° C, all components – recyclable, resistant to water and dirt (except for USB-port, and are already working on it.)

The generator cannot store energy, but it will be indispensable in any corner of the world where there is no access to electricity.

Can I make a smaller generator? You can, but then the energy it will produce less (Tremont Electric tried to balance the ratio of portability – output power). You can also create a device and large, in this case it will depend on the application.

By the way, before the Americans were offering to carry portable generators on the knee, and the Japanese build them into sandals.
