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.
