Recharge Your Mobile Phone With Pedal Power [news.bbc.co.uk]
|Mobile phones can now be recharged while riding a bike. |
Phone firm Nokia has released a charging kit that uses a dynamo powered by a bicycle's wheels.
Any cyclist wanting to re-charge their handset using the kit will need to maintain a speed of about 4mph (6km/h), said Nokia.
What took them so long to come up with this!

They should make these available in the gym. Think of all that wasted energy. ;)

anyone do the math as to how much bike time it takes to charge a phone?
quick googling shows Nokia say 10 minutes for 28 min of talk time - but I bet your mileage may vary.
