NEW PRODUCT – Pocket Socket USB 5V 1 Amp Output – K-Tor


IT’S THE END OF DAYS! GRAB THE PETS, JENNA, WE’RE HEADING TO THE MOUNTAINS! The Pocket Socket 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.

Built out of strong polycarbonate material, K-Tor’s Pocket Socket USB 1 AMP hand crank generator will perform in any environment from the Amazon to the Big Apple! From power outages and storms to emergencies, you can charge critical equipment in time. The size and weight of a water bottle, this hand crank generator is super portable. Now comes with a Velcro strap to securely attach the Pocket Socket to your hand!

The Pocket Socket can charge any USB powered device, making this model the best pocket-sized hand crank generator by far. Power a wide range of mobile devices, smart phones, radios, cameras, gaming devices, and more! The Pocket Socket contains a smart chip that converts directly from the generator to the USB output at a high level of efficiency. The chip also has electronic current limiting and thermal protection to protect against accidental overloads. The Pocket Socket will power devices with a standard USB up to 1 Ampere and will generate electricity when you are spinning the crank above the minimum rate.
