MINIWIZ has created a portable, alternative power source called the HYmini.

The device harnesses the natural power of the wind to recharge an integrated battery, which at the same time can be used to charge other electronic devices.

But what happens when it's not windy out? MINIWIZ thought of that too. This gadget can be supplemented with an optional $25 solar panel, or the user can simply plug it into a power outlet and charge it up like regular electronics.

The HYmini also comes with five different connectors capable of charging just about every gadget found in your bag.

The best way to harness its full potential? Clip it to your bike or your armband to really maximize the wind power.
