In a technology-driven world, being separated from your phone or device for even a minute is a crippling thought for some. The Boost Turbine 4000 may be a solution to that problem; it has a hand crank turbine that can charge your smart phone or electronic device using pure kinetic energy. Crank the turbine for one minute, and you have enough power to make a four-minute phone call or send a few emergency texts. BoostTurbine 4000 is made of tough but lightweight aluminum and is compact enough to fit in a pocket—providing the security of knowing that a powered device is only a minute of work away.
