K-TOR® and its line of human powered generators is the vision of President and Founder, Kenneth Torino. Ken is a former IBM executive and electrical engineer, with over 30 years of experience. He created K-TOR® based on the idea that bio-mechanical energy created by every person could be easily and efficiently converted into electrical energy and made available on a personal level worldwide.
“I created K-TOR®, because I saw a need for a personal generator that was small, light, inexpensive, versatile and easy to use. I have, personally, been inconvenienced many times by a dead cell phone or flashlight while traveling or hiking. I have seen news reports of difficulty and suffering in many parts of the world, due to natural disasters or the lack of electricity. K-TOR® can provide electricity where there is none — regardless of the circumstances.”
