Quite a few companies have tried their hand at portable renewable energy charging devices, resulting in some clever ideas like solar messenger bags and mini solar generators. But it seems like there still hasn't been a perfect solution for recharging your gadgets with renewable energy while you're on the go. Well, the new K3 Charger from Kinesis Industries may just be the best solution yet.
The charger, set for release in June, is the size of a flashlight and generates both solar and wind power to charge your gadgets. The K3 can recharge cell phones, iPods, iPhones and digital cameras through a USB port and various adapters.
The combination of solar and wind means you're not out of luck if one or the other is unavailable when you need a charge or, if you'd rather just charge it before you leave the house, it also comes with an AC adapter. The small size also allows easy transport in a backpack or even a purse.
The company claims that a fully charged K3 can charge a cell phone more than five times, so you may be able to get rid of that car adapter and just keep one of these in your glove compartment from now on. Pricing information is still unavailable.
