Product Description

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.

I bought this on a whim because I've got more money than sense, I'm a closet environmentalist and I've got no money...

BUT IT TURNED OUT GREAT! It's actually a really good piece of kit, comes with a little armband to strap it your arm (or rucksack, or even your wing-mirror if you're sick of looking at all those boring cars overtaking you in the fast lane), and also a little clip to fix it to your bicycle frame too (this snapped the first time I used it, but that's more to do with my ham fists than a bad design).
My only complaints really are that it loses it's charge quite quickly (the internal battery doesn't seem to hold the juice very long), and that it didn't come with an adapter for my HTC, but you can plug in any USB charging cable, so I just used the one that came with the phone instead.

All in all, a great buy - so if you're an impulse-buyer like me, FOLLOW THAT IMPULSE!

The product came with a bike fitting that failed the first time I went out. It has a arm band so tried that, the unit does not charge anything. A complete waste of time and money
