NEW PRODUCT – Pocket Socket 2 – Hand-Crank Power Outlet – The Pocket Socket 2 is a hand-cranked generator that provides electrical power on the go! It is perfect for anyone who needs to charge a portable electronic device immediately, but does not have access to a wall outlet. From the business traveler to outdoor enthusiast, commuting student to emergency personnel, the Pocket Socket is a great eco-friendly source for emergency backup power. Fully functional anytime, anywhere, it lets you charge a wide variety of electronic devices, including, but not limited to, your cell phone, mp3 player, camera, GPS, or tablet. If you need an adapter included to convert to European two pin standard from US, please let us know.
Handy for all sorts of DIY projects, and with a switching wall-adapter/converter you can get fairly-efficiant conversion to 5V, 9V, 12V, etc. Remember, when you stop cranking, it stops powering, so for many uses you would want to use this as a way of charging up a battery.
