    • Internal battery holds a full charge for up to 100 days sitting still; add movement and it will continue to stay charged even longer
    • If the battery is empty, vigorously shaking the PEG for 10 min. will give you enough power to make a short phone call from a dead phone
    • Comes with USB cable for charging from a computer, cable for connecting PEG to your device that needs to be charged and microUSB adapter tip
    • The nPower PEG personal energy generator is compatible with thousands of devices including phones, cameras, GPS, music players, game devices, eReaders, LED lights and radios

    Rated5out of5byfromPortable, green back up powerI've enjoyed the nPower PEG for more than 2 years: reliable back up power at work conferences, car trips, and bike rides. Like other reviewers, I find a key step is to charge it fully first via USB cable, then use hiking/running/walking to increase/maintain the charge. (Note: smart phones are power hogs; smaller devices = more efficiency. It's an excellent feeling to know my own kinetic motion is harnessed to create power. Smart and green!

    Rated2out of5byfromGreat concept / Bad productI was excited about this product, since I like to bring "tech toys" with me while hiking, and the nPower Peg would give me the assurance that my devices would get charged while out. The ability to charge of my footsteps was the selling point, since I'd be using it while hiking and and I may find myself in a place where there may not be enough sun to power a solar charger. However, after an initial test hike of 8 miles, the nPower Peg didn't charge at all. Not even enough to charge my MotoACTV fitness watch from it's 40%. In addition to the above, they don't supply a charging cable that is compatible with the iPhone 5 series (and future iPhones) smartphones and rely on iGo for additional adapter tips. I've contacted nPower PEG for information on this, but I don't think I'm going to be waiting to hear back from them before I return it and get my money back instead of exchanging it for another unit. Sad... I had high hopes for this.

    Rated1out of5byfromGreat Idea...Not quite ready yetGreat Idea, but did not work. I charged up the peg from my computer, and it charged my phone partially from its battery later. But When I put it in my backpack, I never got a charge. I hiked over 150 miles in day hikes in 15 days, but the light never shifted to Green. Cool Idea, but perhaps it needs to go to the lab for a bit more time!

    Rated1out of5byfromI really wanted to love it.I was so excited to get this. I waited for a few months so I could use my dividend. Unfortunately the first one I got was dead out of the box. I got a replacement, but after doing some testing, it just wasn't charging for me. I had a bit of luck walking around with it during the day, but when I gave it the the main test while backpacking, it was an utter failure. I hiked 23 miles with this in my pack, and it didn't have a charge of any kind. Given the first broken one, I don't know if this one broke or if I don't bounce enough while hiking, but it certainly didn't meet my needs. Others seem to have had good luck with it, so I hope it was just me. I had to return it because it was useless for what I wanted it for.

    Rated5out of5byfromPortable Power!We use this as a phone charger for an I-phone 4s on extended backpacking trips. We like to have music around camp during downtime and can run a charge out of a 4s in one night. We pack this and the iGo jack for the i-Phone and we can charge our phone while hiking, rain or shine. Last weekend I was able to fully recharge my dead 4s with 3 hours of hiking (~5 miles) in the Catskills.

    Rated4out of5byfromThis thing works great.This thing charges (with the adapter) my iphone 10% in about 15 minutes. More reliable than a solar panel, because I don't have to wait for the sun to come out. I precharge it with my computer and then put it in my backpack for commuting and traveling. It works great!
