Today K-TOR announced the release of the second generation Pocket Socket hand crank generator, the Pocket Socket 2. The Pocket Socket 2 incorporates the learning from long term testing and customer feedback since the launch of the original Pocket Socket.
“The Pocket Socket has been a successful product for K-TOR,” comments founder Ken Torino, “We have customers all over the world using our hand crank generator in a wide range of environments and it’s been fascinating to witness the places our products have been and the purposes they have served.”
New packaging, labels, materials, and molded grips are just a few of the updates that have been made to this second generation Pocket Socket. A yellow color scheme for the label and rubber band match the primary use of this product in emergency situations. Also visible to the customer, the top and bottom of the case has been patterned to make it easier to grip.
Other, less visible, updates include a newer stronger polycarbonate plastic, a stronger power train and improved electronics.
The patented technology inside the Pocket Socket 2 and all K-TOR portable generator products enable the efficient conversion of human energy into a 120 volt power source. A 124% increase in blackouts annually in the US in recent decades has left more and more Americans looking for a backup power supply for when the grid goes down.
K-TOR believes no one should have to be without access to electricity. Our portable, affordable, human powered generators feature a standard outlet interface that provides alternative, backup and emergency power to a wide range of compatible devices.
The Pocket Socket 2 retails at $64.95 and is available online at www.k-tor.com.
