Charging mobile becomes very crucial when you are on the move or away from home. Search for a mobile charging point is also annoying when you are at some public place or a garden. Recently, two American electricians Einar Agustsson and Agust Agustsson have developed a new charger that requires no electricity power source as it harnesses the wind power. Here, a small wind turbine is used to charge your mobile using USB port. So, there is also no issue of an appropriate charging pin. Every mobile having a USB port can be charged with this new technology. The first portable wind mobile charger is named as Trinity. Taking into account billions of mobile users worldwide, it is indeed a small but crucial step towards a green future of our planet.
This device can not only be used for charging mobiles but also other device having a USB port for example tablets etc. Trinity does not resemble a big wind turbine but a small 12 inches vessel that could be folded. Aluminum legs help to stand the device. It can take shape of a long rod or a tripod. Three blades at the top of the rod make the generator inside spin and generate power up to 15 watts. To store the electricity produced, a battery is also attached with this device.
The device is also provided with an internal battery to save power for future use. Fully charged battery is enough for almost 4 to 6 mobile phones according to the inventors. The batteries can also be charged by plugging it directly into a Power socket. A funding raising request has also been launched at KickStarter project as the inventors aim to commercialize the device by the next year.
