An inexhaustible power supply for wilderness survival

An inexhaustible power supply for wilderness survival

For many of us, the mobile phone has become the most essential tool in an emergency. But when it runs out of power, there's no way to call for help when you most need it. With this handy tool you can recharge your phone - at any time, indoor or out - with a simple, ergonomic motion that even a child can master.
