The nPower PEG (Personal Energy Generator) is a kinetic charger that generates electricity through the motion of your body, typically when you are walking or running. It stores the energy in a rechargeable battery which can then be used to charge your mobile phone, mp3 player or other portable device via USB. As a rough guide, a minute of motion gives a minute of mp3 listening on an iPod nano or similar player.
