yogen green gadget charger

the yogen charger is a small device which uses a pull chord to produce clean energy for charging mobile devices. the company showed off their clever green device at CES. to use the yogen charger, the user simply plugs in their mobile device and begin pulling the small cord attached to one end. the pulling motion produces energy which is transferred to the device, charging it up without batteries or cords. the device is very practical, using a simple gear and human energy, instead of expensive mini solar panels or high tech hydrogen energy packs.

  • It can get you off the hook

  • Its a virtual duplicate of a flashlight i have, bought in China some years ago. I too wondered how it could kinetically power things other than its own light. So there it is. This very same tech was shown in Designboom recently, in the form of a man walking and the device attached to him was charging his phone. Its extremely simple and base tech but it works.

  • Seriously, a great product, but the ad is really bad, very cheap and obvious, steals much quality product, not worth it.

    Tucho says:
