Every now and then you come across an idea so simple and so brilliant that you kick yourself for not thinking of it first. This is very much the case with Kenneth Torino’s brainchild, K-Tor
K-Tor comes with the tagline “Green Power, Anytime, Anywhere” and is based on the concept of converting bio-mechanical energy into electrical energy so that it is readily available to anyone in the world, wherever they are and whatever their circumstances. Still confused…..think wind up radio, just with greater flexibility and applications!
No longer will you have to worry about costly electricity bills, whether you have the right plug adaptor when going abroad, or more importantly, whether your luxury plug in items are contributing to a bill that the earth just can’t afford to pay.
The flagship ‘Pocket Socket’ is a clever little hand cranked device that generates up to 10 watts of electricity at 120 volts.
Putting that into terms we can all understand, that’s enough power to charge all of these devices:
iPhone, iPod, iPad, Droid, Blackberry, PDA, Digital Camera, Digital Camera Battery, Hand-Held Gaming Device, Digital Video Camera, GPS Navigation Device, Rechargeable Light, Kindle, Tablet, Cell Phone, Satellite Phone, MP3 Player, Flashlight etc
It is also the only hand crank charger that can charge:
Apple iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPods, and iPads
AA and AAA Battery Chargers
As if the Pocket Socket wasn’t clever enough, Torino has also designed a peddle powered generator called the Power Box which is due for release soon and looks to be every bit as impressive as its predecessor.
These really are state-of-the-art, sustainable and innovative products that everyone should own at leasr one of. K-Tor and Kenneth Torino, you should be very proud indeed!
