Hand power your phone

The pocket socket 

You’re stuck in a Jakarta traffic jam and your phone’s about to die so how are you going to let your client know you’re not going to make the meeting?

Get out your hand crank and start charging it up with your own brawn. The Pocket Socket from K-Tor costs US$59 and can generate up to 10 watts of electricity at 120 volts. That’s enough power to charge mobile phones, e-readers, digital cameras and GPS devices.
