Tremont Electric has introduced a personal energy generator (PEG) that harnesses kinetic energy as a person walks. The nPower PEG transfers the motion as electricity directly to the portable electronic device that is plugged into it. The average device can be charged to 80 percent in an hour.

The nPower PEG differs from other kinetic devices on the market in that it is a real-time gadget that sends electricity directly to the target device rather than to a battery as a reservoir from which to charge later.
