Through i-stage, the nPower® PEG has been “certified by the CES brand as a standout in categories of innovation, impact, and marketability.” The nPower® PEG is the world’s first passive kinetic energy charger for hand-held electronic devices.
“Just do what you do, nPower® extends the use time of your hand-held electronics when you can’t get to a wall outlet,” says inventor Aaron Lemieux, founder and CEO of Tremont Electric.
The nPower® PEG allows individuals, for the first time ever, to capture and store their personal kinetic energy generated from walking, running, or biking. The PEG is a backup battery charger for hand-held electronic devices (i.e. cell phones, iPods, GPS). By placing the lightweight nPower® PEG vertically in a backpack, briefcase, or purse and going about daily activities, the user will have extra power when it is needed most. –While on the go.
According to the recent Consumer Electronics Association report, 5 Technology Trends to Watch, “Consumers will be looking for consumer electronic devices to have greener options such as compatibility with current energy management systems, the ability to produce its own energy and/or act as a storage device.”
The PEG is a hybrid charger that receives a charge from kinetic energy and via USB. Originally unveiled to consumers as a prototype at the 2009 International CES, the nPower® PEG is now fully commercialized. The nPower® PEG retails for $159.99 and can be reserved at npowerpeg.com.
