At this year’s CES in Las Vegas, Kinesis unveiled a 2-in-1 handheld recharger aimed at charging your USB devices such as cell phones and mp3 players. K2 utilises both solar power and wind energy to charge its internal battery. This battery is large enough, when full, to charge a cell phone 5 times over, ensuring you never have to see that ‘battery low’ sign again.
On the face of it the K2 is a device to be reckoned with but to me it looks a little on the flimsy side. I know it is meant to be handheld but surely to harness wind power it should be able to stand up to a light breeze without the need for the user to stand out in the wind too? We will see how the K2 measures up when it comes out later in the year.
You can find a little more info is available at the Kinesis' website.
