Need to recharge your cell phone while camping in the wilderness? No problem.
They say their audience is looking for small and lightweight power generators so they can easily carry them in backpacks. As reported by LocalSyr.com, two Ithaca High School graduates have developed a portable lightweight power generator.
Hillside Hydro's main design weighs less than one pound and it has an attached tether that helps it ride the current in a steady stream.
With each turn in the water, more power is generated.
After about eight hours in the stream, the propellers generate enough power to charge your cell phone to full battery three times.
The USB port inside the generator allows you to plug in phones, cameras, GPS devices and other small electronics in need of a charge while you're in the elements.
