Blue Freedom Portable Hydropower Plant

Category: Tech

After the marathon of suck known as Winter 2015, a lot of people are upset with Mother Nature. If you like the idea of making that cranky old broad work for you for a change – by say, charging your phone – check out Blue Freedom.

This is the smallest and lightest hydropower plant in the world. Here’s what it does: You set it in a running stream or any flowing water and the micro-turbine provides eco-friendly energy for the operation of any device. Just one hour of moving water yields 10 hours of power for your smartphone via USB, plus the whole setup is small enough to fit in your backpack. Early backers on Kickstarter can get one right now for $179 and put Ma Nature to work. [Purchase]
