Designed like a medium-sized apple, HandEnergy packs a magnetic rotor, a stator, a 1,000 mAh capacity battery, and has got a USB output port amazingly attached to it. Many of the mobile devices do not specifically offer the feature of swapping in a new battery for uptime which is uninterrupted.

They're also restricted by means of capacity, even the external USB power banks are quite efficient. HandEnergy is made to produce electricity at wall socket speeds through gentle wrist rotations. Latest hybrid generator, which is right not funding on Kickstarter, is currently finding to offer on-demand power from the palm of even just one hand.

You are bound when indoors and/or when it's cloudy outside. Solar technology likely springs to mind first, as far as harvesting free energy is concerned. Despite the fact that portable solar panel products are more towards consumers, solar still suffers some practical boundaries. Generating electricity from muscle movement is nothing new, as we've seen a variety of devices over the years.

Products like the SOSCharger utilize the very basic hand crank method, whereas the MiPwr Dynamo iPhone case and K-Tor Power Box rely on squeezing and pedaling, respectively. HandEnergy sets itself apart by letting people use a device in one hand when it is charging with the other, no matter where they could be.

Users can expect to generate up to 5 V / 1 A of maximum output through HandEnergy's USB port, while the internal battery is limited to a charge rate of 5 V / 0.8 A, which recently has no option to be plugged in for recharging like a typical power bank according to the people who created it actually. HandEnergy will also contain a Bluetooth module, allowing users to monitor charging status in real-time through the mobile app.
