The Pocket Socket 2 is a hand powered generator that charges electronics by hand crank. It generates up to 10watts of electricity at 120 volts. That is enough power to charge a wide range of devices.
The Pocket Socket is the only hand crank charger that can charge:
- Apple iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPods, and iPads
- Digital Cameras
- AA and AAA Battery Chargers
Universal Hand Crank Battery Charger
The Pocket Socket battery charger provides universal compatibility by using the same style electrical socket found in every American home. It can easily be adapted to the European two pin standard (European and international adapters are sold separately). This means the hand crank will charge any rechargeable device that consumes less than 10 watts of electricity.
The Pocket Socket features a large sturdy crank arm with an easy-to-grip knob that makes generating electricity a breeze. It can be used left or right-handed and cranked clockwise or counterclockwise.
The Pocket Socket is a powerful charger. It has a 10W generator. The Pocket Socket charges your mobile device at the same rate it would charge in a standard 120v household electrical outlet.
The size of a water bottle, the Pocket Socket weighs less than a pound, making portability one of its best features. (Size: 2.5″ x 2.25″ x 6.875″. Weight: 15 oz.)
