Wind-Up Charger

Disposable batteries bad. Rechargeable batteries good. Human-powered recharging of batteries excellent. Weighing only 90g (3oz) this wind-up charger, comes with adaptors to fit many models of mobile cell phones including Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung and Siemens. You’ll get either 30-60 min of standby or 2-8 mins of talk time on a 3 minute wind-up. And the unit has a built in LED emergency light in case you needed extra convincing. Plus they’ve somehow managed to make it smaller than most phones, so it can be on hand when you're days from the nearest power-point. £10. ::Porta-charge [by WM]
