Case lets you charge phone by hand
(WXYZ) - Charging your phone can sometimes be a hassle when you're on the go.
But now a new smartphone case is putting the charging capabilities in the users' hands.
The Mipwr Dynamo case will let you generate your own battery power with a built-in push lever.
It works through electromagnetic induction--the process of generating electricity using a magnetic field. All of the electronics of the my power dynamo are concealed inside the case.
The Dynamo case is both a battery extender and hybrid charger.
The product's website says if you exhaust your cell phone battery, the case's back-up battery will give users an additional two extra hours of charge.
If even that runs out, you can then pump the push lever to get 30 seconds worth of charge for a minute of pumping which, in the event of an emergency, could be a life saver.
The product's creators have started a Kickstarter campaign to get the Mipwr Dynamo case on the market.
Early backers can get the case for $25. The case was made for the iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5/5s.
