nPower PEG: Recharge your iPod by running

nPower PEG: Recharge your iPod by running

Physical exercises and music go hand in hand but it’s really annoying when your battery dies in the middle of an exercise. In order to avoid such a situation nPower has prepared the nPower PEG – a new mobile charger that converts your kinetic energy into electricity.

The device is small in size and consists of a load, spring, inductive coil and a battery. When you move the device converts your movements into electrical energy – and the longer you move the more energy you’ll get. Once done you can use the accumulated energy to recharge your devices via a USB 2.0 port.

The sad news is that the nPower PEG isn’t very efficient – right now it can only convert just 15 per cent of the overall energy it receives. Additionally the charger can only be used with smartphones or Apple’s iPod.

Here’s what you can do with the nPower PEG – if you walk for one minute you’ll produce enough energy to play music in your iPod for 1 minute. If you walk for 11 minutes the device will produce enough energy to allow you to use 2G or talk on an iPhone for 1 minute. Finally if you walk for 26 minutes you’ll produce enough energy to use a 3G network or talk on your iPhone.

The nPower PEG is available now for 200 USD.
