We do all know what it's like. No, really. Even those of use at gadgetshop HQ have had linguistic difficulties and communications conundrums to contend with in our past lives. And there surely is no conundrum more dashed difficult to solve than the mobile phone that's about to run out of juice. Until now, that is. Looking for all the world like a mini wind turbine, this compact instant charger gives one's deceased phone/camera/PDA/mp3 player battery a bypass and charges while on the go. Marvellous. But there are squintillions of chargers out there, you cry as one. Ah yes. But none quite so inventive, light and convenient. This nifty little gadget uses the wonders of wind energy to generate electricity. The Mini Kin is a portable, hybrid, universal power unit that stores wind energy and conventional power from a computer/laptop to its built in rechargeable lithium polymer battery. Simply place the Mini Kin onto your bike, vehicle window or arm to allow the wind to catch the fan and charge the built in rechargeable battery. Then simply plug into a mobile phone (or other device) whenever its battery is low for instant power. Alternatively, connect the charger to your computer via USB to build up charge. Now one can never live in fear of being caught short in public again. Enabling one to complete that birthday phone call to one's grandmama, or that 'mwah mwah missing you too, sweetie', to one's ladyfriend without loss of either power or prestige.
