An Eco-Friendly Cell Charger

July 7, 2010 at 3:30 pm Leave a comment

You know you’re a smart-phone addict when life depends on your phone’s remaining battery juice. 10% left?! No!

Lucky for metropolitan Japan, modern day dilemmas are completely solved. These days, so many restaurants, stores and fast food chains are now offering to charge your cell phone for free. Even taxi cabs are doing it. It’s just one of the creative ways they get customers through the door.

But let’s say you’re nowhere near civilization and your battery is dying. What do you do? Why not use this?:

The HY mini is a universal cell phone ($50) charger powered completely by wind or sun. It fits in the palm of your hand so it’s ultra portable. And not only your cell phone, it can charge iPods, digital cameras and PDAs, too. The built-in fan is hooked to a lithium ion battery and when fully charged it can get you up to 20 extra minutes of phone time. Woohoo! \(^o^)/

Though if you’re looking to turbo-charge your electronic device, this eco-conscious unit may not be the one for you. Think of it as the Smart Car of cell phones; it may not run fast but at least it won’t kill the planet.
The HY mini has become a popular item in Japan, probably because it’s yet another cool gadget to trophy. I might get one just to show off to my American friends’ whose phone batteries are always dying. It’s too bad they can’t just walk into a KFC for a free charge. Damn you, Japan. You always have the best of everything!
