The Eton Boost Turbine 2000 can charge your cell phone, even if there is a power outage.
The recent Hurricane to strike the east coast of the United States caused a lot of power failures, leading to the drainage of many cell phone and laptop batteries. Without power and electricity, there is almost no way to cure boredom or call for help. Similar to battery-less flashlights, the Eton Boost Turbine 2000 works when the handle is cranked. Unfortunately, in order for the Eton Boost to work, it must first be charged prior to the outage. By winding the device for one minute, it can charge the phone for a 30-second conversation. These mini powerless chargers are great for emergencies as well as quick fixes in the outdoors like camping trips.
