    I can charge my phone on my bike?

    So I have this little, no camera, no “there’s an app for that,” no nonsense Nokia mobile phone.  It’s great, but I always have difficulty in remembering to charge it.  If I rode my bike everywhere like a good Treehugger, I would be ecstatic to find out about this new technology that was recently released.

    Nokia was the first to have this idea: a bike charger.  Using your own energy and putting it over to charging your phone was a project that University of Kenya students Jeremiah Murimi and Pascal Katana undertook about four years ago.  Nokia picked up the product from there, and has had successful released in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

    The charger works at a speed of 6 kilometers per hour, or about 3 miles per hour.  According to a Nokia article, just 20 minutes of pedaling at 10 kilometers per hour, or about 6 miles per hour, you can power up a Nokia 1202 for 1 hour  of talk time or 74 hours of standby time.

    Of course, we are not talking about smart phones here or taking into consideration the amount of texting, gaming, and networking we do on our phones.  This is talking about my little Nokia phone.  But this is definitely a start in finding convenient ways to green up our lifestyles.

      can you please give me that circuit diagram and design.

      I could not find one unfortunately. However, the article links to another article on Gotwind.org, featuring a pump that charges a cellphone and there is a “How it Works” section. It might have the same mechanism or same kind of technology. Hope this helps you!
