Whether it’s your phone, audio devices, cameras or other gadgets, when you’re outdoors, you just have to think about batteries. This is where Estream comes in, a new power generator that uses the energy of water to power all your USB-connected devices.
Created by Enomad, the goal of this product was to create a powerful and portable green energy for those that often surround themselves with nature. In order to use it, you’ll need moving water like a river or stream. While rotating the turbine, Estream produces 2.5W – 5W of energy.
To fully charge it, you’ll need around 4.5 hours to do so. Once it’s full, you can charge around 3 smartphones, GoPro cameras or tablets and it does that twice as fast then if you’re charging through an outlet. So, how to use it? All you have to do is remove the cover, unfold the turbines and lock them, hook Estream and release into the water. Check out the video below
Estream can also be used as a lantern with four modes, even under water. As for the design, it’s modular, can easily fit in a backpack and weighing 1.8lb , it’s quite lightweight. The best thing, you can attach it to your kayak, so while you’re in the water, it charges at the same time.
