    The FreeCharge 12V Personal Energy Source is a lightweight, durable and efficient power source for mobile phones and other electronic devices.

The FreeCharge 12V is equipped with an LED charge level indicator that illuminates when the crank handle is turned at an optimum speed. Charge and talk times will vary between devices and accessory chargers.

    The FreeCharge 12V has no internal battery, allowing for the direct and efficient transfer of energy directly into the recipient device. Internal mechanical components are specified to industrial standards for repeated use and long life. There are no degradable components offering extended storage life without any decay in performance the generic cigarette lighter interface providing both forward and reverse compatibility for practically all mobile phones and personal electronic devices (iPod, GPS, PDA etc.), from obsolete older models to those yet to be released.

    The Freeplay self-charge system is built around a custom designed, highly efficient alternator. The architecture of this patented system has been developed to maximize the ability of the user to convert human mechanical energy into stored electricity quickly and efficiently.
