Re: Would the Wrist Charger from ThinkGeek work?

Today I remembered about this little gem I found once online:

Would it work?

Doesn't mention anything about the max current it can deliver, but voltage wise it should work.

1500mAh at 350mA means you'd get 4 hours and change without a screen or keyboard. A screen will suck massive amounts of juice.

Sounds like it would end up being better buying a LIPO battery + LIPO charger.  There's been plenty of discussion on here about them.

I have to admit that when I first saw the contraption I assumed is was a masturbatory device which created a charge for storing power.

Now that I can see what it is, it just appears wanky!

Wrist Charger lol

surely a battery pack or a battery solution (http://www.bruntonoutdoor.com/) would give more power and not involve 83g on your wrist.

if the wrist one told the time or also made use of kinetic energy then it might be an alternative but as just a battery seems a little stupid to wear it on your wrist

A charger that helps you lose weight?

I dunno.. If the whole device was wrist-mounted, that'd be kinda cool Think Pipboy…

also, those portable power packs are REALLY expensive..
