Rechargeable Batteries

Postby Ryan » Wed Feb 03, 2010 6:36 pm

Here's a couple of ideas I like. They aren't being produced but they aren't bad ideas...

The first is [url=http://www.yankodesign.com/2009/10/05/crank-up-battery/]a built in generator and crank[/url], and the second is for [url=http://indakind.com/]a solar panel sticker[/url] that you would wrap around a rechargeable battery.

This idea is to build a small generator in the top of the battery that you could use to recharge it by unfolding the handle and spinning it around. Personally, I think you could even make a little propeller attachment and use the wind as well.

This idea is for a solar panel sticker that you could wrap around a rechargeable battery so that while it is laying out it could be charged. I think it is a wonderful idea.

Both are good ideas and seem very doable.
The first one reminds me a bit of that Flash light which needs to be squeezed in order to be powered.

Thanks!

Yeah, it is probably based upon the same concept.
