Gallery: K3 Charger: Solar and Wind Power to Go

 

Imagine you’re lost in the woods, having wandered off the hiking trail. It’s looking like you may have to bed down on some pine needles with what’s left of the granola bars, when your friend whips out a little device that looks like a small fan. What’s that? It’s the K3 Charger – a compact hybrid wind-and-solar power generator about the size of a flashlight. The handy green gadget allows consumers to recharge an iPod, cell phone, PDA, or other electronic device using renewable energy!

The K3 Charger is a handheld device that lets you charge everything from a cell phone to an ipod or camera. The company claims that a fully-charged K3 can charge a mobile phone more than five times and eliminates the problem of buying power adaptors when you go to another country. Perfect for a variety of applications ranging from camping to emergencies to bringing power to off-grid locations, the K3 Charger is set for official release in June 2009.

    The K3 Solar Charger is by far the best solar charger in the world. You will not see a better charger anywhere that has wind and solar built into the charger. I found it at many places, but I see livecofriendly and amazon are neck and neck for prices, but I like that I can simply check out with livecofriendly.com and it is not so cluttered with this that and the other, amazon sells it but i want to help small businesses get ahead, plus I can actually call someone there and they answer.

    Since we live in San Francisco’s East Bay almost over the Hayward Fault, there is no doubt we’d select the K3 Solar Charger. Having seen the deprivation suffered by the Haitians, we’re renewing our earthquake supplies and the K3 would be an essential.
