DIY - Crank that iPod

Tipster Zack J. noticed this over at Geek Technique (love the name) and thought fellow Treehuggers might get a jolt out of it. Read a blow-by-blow description, complete with copious photos, of how Mark in the Netherlands takes apart a windup LED torch and converts it into a hand charger for his iPod. Not for the mechanically faint of heart, but it does show what is possible with a little curiosity, harnessed to knowledge and a willingness to try. Seems 30 mins of winding will get you two bars of charge on the iPod’s battery icon. ::GeekTechnique
