CLEVELAND, OH (May 3, 2010): The nPower® PEG is a light-weight, portable Personal Energy Generator that is used to recharge your hand-held electronic devices when you’re away from the grid. Imagine being able to capture and store the kinetic energy you generate by walking, jogging, or biking and then using that renewable energy to charge your phone, Mp3 player, or GPS devices. Just place the nPower® PEG vertically in your backpack or briefcase and carry it with you.
nPower® PEG provides individuals with the security and enjoyment of knowing their mobile electronic devices can be charged anytime and anyplace; features include:
The nPower® PEG is Tremont Electric’s first application of the nPower® technology. Aaron LeMieux, technology inventor and Tremont Electric founder, was hiking on the Appalachian Trail when he wanted a way to recharge his radio and CD player without carrying the extra weight of disposable batteries. Several days into his three-month trip, he was inspired by the notion that the backpack he carried possessed a significant amount of kinetic energy through the up-and-down movement derived by walking. LeMieux realized that if he could convert this excess motion into usable electricity he could use this power to charge his hand-held mobile electronic devices; thus the inception of nPower® technology.
“The nPower® PEG provides individuals the opportunity to capture and store their own kinetic energy. nPower® PEG makes the renewable energy revolution personal,” says inventor and founder, Aaron LeMieux.
nPower® PEG is available for purchase for $149.99 online at www.nPowerPEG.com beginning the week of May 3.
The nPower® PEG reduces environmental waste by eliminating the need for multiple chargers. It is compatible with over 3,000 hand-held electronic devices and is a cradle-to-cradle product made with sustainable components, which are 90% locally sourced. The nPower® PEG can be returned to Tremont Electric for recycling, refurbishing, and repurposing.
