HYmini Wind Power

Came across this today:

HYmini is a handheld, universal charger/adapter device that harnesses renewable wind power / solar power and conventional wall plug power to recharge almost all your 5V digital gadgets.

Anyone who has ever had their head taken off by the Dublin wind will appreciate this little gadget. I've lost count of the times I've been blown onto the road while walking down streets off the Dublin coast. Ok, perhaps that only applies to five foot nothingers like me, but I'm still convinced that your gadget of choice would remain chocablock with energy from one of these babies.

I love the new header, it's beautiful and 33% done, well done. That must be good to see.

M&T, thank you. It was a relief to reach a third the way through - here's to half way!

There's a sex toy joke in there somewhere... I just can't find it! ;)

TTT, not sure if those things are 5V compatible...but I could be a bit behind in the times.

I guess it depends on a person's expectations...

Still, could be frustrating waiting for the wind to get up, just so one can get off! ;)

I think TTT has said it all really ...

TTT, that's the beauty of the beast, it just stores up energy for later use!

Helen, I guess it all comes down to the lowest common denominator sometimes ;)

I've got one of those. Yes, they work on all 5V devices. Yes, they store up energy from wind. Dublin should be perfect. No. Not only wind. It also has solar power panels that you can plug in too as well as a hand crank. You can plug it into the wall if you really need to store a charge. No. It's not a sex toy.

Hi Anon thanks for your comment. By the way, the sex toy thing was a) that it might power one rather than be one and b) a joke!
