SOSCharger : Charges Your Smartphones While also Makes You a Muscle Boy
There are hordes of smartphone cases and chargers showing up at Kickstarter. Some of them are truly handy and innovative yet some others turn out to be so weirdly geeky, just like the Epiphany onE Puck. SOSCharger, however, doesn’t fit both of these criteria, at least in my opinion. It’s not very handy since you have to push your back a little to use it. And it doesn’t sport any advanced and complex technology that will lead any geeks into awe as well.
It’s not a bad product, though. The built-in generator may prove to be a solid solution in an emergency situation where it’s practically impossible to get any electricity. The said generator is connected to a hand-crank on the outside which you will have to turn to get the juice you needed. According to the developer, 3-5 minutes of winding it up can generate enough electricity to facilitate 5-12 minutes of talk time. If you do that constantly, you might eventually gain some muscle. Tap on the video below to figure out what else SOSCharger offers to you.
Aside from the generator and the crank, SOSCharger also sports a 1,500mAh battery that you can use as an emergency power backup. No wonder why this thing is quite bulky. There are various tiny LEDs on its side to tell you if it functions properlyand it also ships with the cable to hook your device up. The planned retail price is almost $50 but you can get it for half of that cost if you preorder it at Kickstarter. If you look for a typical yet more reliable solution, Eton Boost Line is the way to go.
