By harnessing the power of your movement, this kinetic energy charger can boost your phone or USB device. Currently seeking finances on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, AMPY is a small wearable device that lets your daily activity power your gadgets and top up your phone.

Specifically, AMPY stores the energy you create from walking, running, cycling and similar motion. Smaller than your smartphone or standard commercial back-up charging device, it can fit in your pocket or be worn as an armband. The kinetic energy charger uses a patent-pending inductive technology that can power your phone for an extra 3 hours. AMPY works on other USB-powered electronics as well and comes with a variety of optional accessories such as clips, sleeves and armbands.
