There are plenty of products out there for charging your gadgets off grid, mostly solar-powered ones, so it caught our attention when a new technology launched on Kickstarter, could charge your devices with hydropower. The HydroBee works with any flowing water source like a stream or river, as well as a hose or faucet.
The Kickstarter page states, “The Hydrobee™ is the new alternative in off-grid personal power for a billion people. It is a tiny hydropower turbine in a can with rechargeable batteries, clever electronics, and a USB 2.0 port. Water flowing through or around the turbine charges the batteries. Then you pick it up and have a can full of electric “juice” to go. As long as you have a stream or river flowing at walking speed, or a household water faucet and standard flow, the Hydrobee™ is a renewable USB power source for you.”
