Blue Freedom Is A Portable Hydro Power Plant


Going off grid always requires some planning, and fortunately there are lots of accessories to help you keep your gadgets powered in those situations. The various offerings range from hydrogen fuel cells, to solar chargers, and now you can add hydro power to the list. The Blue Freedom device is a small power-generating turbine that you place in a nearby stream. As the water flows through the impeller, it generates enough power to charge its own 5,000 mAh battery, with which you can then power your electronics. 1 hour in a stream generates enough electricity to power your phone for 10h. At least these are the numbers the company is providing, though we suppose that’s an approximation. In any case, it’s a cool product and a $179 pledge will get you one with delivery in October of this year.

Zap&Go Portable Charger Fills Up In Just 5 Minutes


Here’s the scenario: you’ve got a tiny 20 minute wait time between flights, your phone is dead and you want to play Candy Crush real bad on your next flight. Normally, you’d find a plug and squeeze in maybe an extra 15% of battery life before it’s time to go. But if you’re carrying the Zap&Go, you have a shot at filling it up all the way. See, the Zap&Go charger gets topped up in just 5 minutes! It contains a 1,500 mAh supercapacitor, itself mostly made up of graphene instead of the more typical aluminum. This, coupled with a special power supply that funnels power in much faster, means that you could top-up the Zap&Go, then use that to recharge your mobile device at a more leisurely rate later on (since it won’t charge as fast, no matter what).

Currently a prototype only, it is undergoing a crowdfunding campaign with hopes of delivery in October 2015, a full year from now. A $99 pledge will secure you one.
