We tested the nPower PEG device from Tremont Electric to see if this kinetic energy driven power supply could live up to its reputation.
The PEG collects kinetic energy when a weight on a spring bounces up and down and stores the electricity generated in an internal battery. With the right adapter the electricity is transferred to a limited number of personal electronic devices. No, it will not charge a laptop computer or an iPad. See the video to find out how our unit performed and decide for yourself whether or not the PEG is something that should be a part of your everyday life or outdoors adventure.
ADD: After completing “Test #3” in the video my iPhone gave me a 20% battery life warning after a few minutes of talking leading me to believe the charge delivered from the nPower PEG was closer to 30% or less.
