Eton, an online store that sell solar powered re-chargers and other similar products are marketing the Boost Turbine series a set of two models that can recharge your depleted battery pack with Hand Turbine Power Generator.
In just one minute the hand turbine power generator can produce enough power for a 30-second call or a few critical texts.
