Your iPhone may last you a few hours on a full charge. It won’t run forever. Sooner or later, you will have to recharge it. You are not always going to have access to a regular electrical outlet. Solar and hand crank chargers could certainly power your device during emergencies. We have even covered ways you can charge your iPhone by walking. Hydrobee gives you a whole new way to recharge your iPhone. It is a tiny hydropower turbine in a can with rechargeable batteries and a USB port. That means you will be able to generate energy for your phone from any stream or river flowing at walking speed.
This charger could work when you are stuck outdoors or are spending some time on your boat. Hydrobee’s turbine battery stores it for USB output. Hydrobee’s Turbine Battery is the size and shape of a 12-ounce soda can. The Stream Body holds the battery so it can be recharged by water. Flow of only 1 gallon per minute will charge the battery. You will be able to charge smartphones, gadgets, and tablets with this.
Charging your gadgets from flowing water is yet another way to get unstuck in emergency situations. Hydrobee lets you do just that. This super exciting product is on Kickstarter at the time of this writing.
