Jiffy Portable Hand Crank Charger – World’s smallest manual charger. Charge your device anywhere, without electricity sockets. Pull it out in any emergency.
Keeping your mobile devices powered on the run isn’t easy. This may change with the new portable hand crank charger that has been designed by Valentin Nicula. Unlike a conventional battery packs (power bank) Jiffy requires no upfront charging and is always ready to power up your smartphone or tablet when your device’s battery runs flat.
THE IDEAL SITUATION- to maintain a last call, an emergency call when you are in a critical situation, to send a last text, or study a map with GPS in case you get lost and can’t find sources to charge your device nearby.
TOTAL ENERGY INDEPENDENCE- charge devices and gadgets at any time, any place and without taking in to consideration the weather, or temperature outside.
The small and stylish device claims to be able to put out up to 2200mA and according to the campaign plans will be delivered by the end of August 2016. Check out their Kickstarter campaign video below to see how the Jiffy hand crank charger can save the day.
Jiffy represents a USB charger that mechanically produces electricity without eliminating toxic substances into the atmosphere. Electricity production is carried out by a three phase asynchronous micro generator with very high productivity, which is driven by a complex mechanical watch. With a simple movement the mechanism is charged with kinetic energy which is transmitted to the micro generators. The charging module is 5V USB that charges all the devices that support the standard USB. The intensity of electric current is up to 2200mA and using the new technology “Quick Charge 2.0” will assure your device a very quick charge.For the people that are less technical, Jiffy with the 2200mA can simultaneously charge 6 smart phones with 4” screens that are navigating the internet through Wi-Fi, or 4 smart phones that are navigating the internet through 3G. Technical info about the prototype: Behind the micro generator is mounted a controller that has the function of continuously recovering the current and 5V voltage stabilization. Also an electrolytic capacitor which has the function of a micro accumulator is connected in the scheme to remove the current fluctuations produced by mechanical processes under the influence of kinetic energy.
