YoGen: Charge Your Batteries by Hand
At the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show, Easy Energy and Fame LLC will formally launch the new YoGen hand-held charger, which allows you to charge a camera/cellphone/PDA battery through repeated pulls on an attached ripcord. The creators of YoGen claim that YoGen features an unmatched capacity to recharge any small-to-mid-sized personal electronics device by offering the industry’s leading ratio of energy output to input. YoGen’s internal alternator generates power in sufficient levels to charge everything from cell phones, iPods, PDAs and MP3 players to Gameboys, GPS units, cameras and other devices. The alternator interfaces with an energy-efficient electronic stabiliser and transmission to transfer linear kinetic energy through a patch cord from the compact, ergonomically-designed unit to the electronic device. YoGen is presently available for online purchase via the YoGen website, and scheduled for global distribution though retail and electronic stores in the second quarter of 2010. The price is $39.99.
