Energy is something that is all around us. The challenging part is finding a way to harness this energy.
ReCycle targets the wasted energy that is generated while riding a bicycle and empowers consumers to not only consume, but produce.
This concept effectively takes you of “the grid” to power and recharge your electronics gadgets.
How Recycle works:
It captures kinetic energy from the subtle rocking back and forth while pedaling, bumpy terrain the user may travel over and any other movements that take place during a bike ride. ReCycle contains three micro generators and a lithium ion battery. These micro generators create an electric charge during any movement of the bicycle. When this electric charge is generated, it is stored in a lithium ion battery. This battery is attached to the charging unit while the user is riding their bike. After the ride, the battery can be easily removed and used to power any number of electronics. At one end of the battery there is a basic wall outlet.
Imagine having a cell phone that has never been plugged into the wall!
This technology is currently being developed to create self charged batteries for cell phones and other electronic devices at m2e power
