The Power Box was a 2011 CES Innovation Awards honoree in the category of portable power.
Universal Pedal Powered
The Power Box is a pedal generator that can be used with your legs or arms. It generates electricity as you pedal, like on a stationary bicycle. Charge the batteries of a full range of portable electronics. Or, charge external batteries to power laptops and all kinds of appliances — either directly from the batteries or through an inverter. The Power Box has a universal outlet. It allows you to plug in chargers from anywhere in the world to charge your portable electronics. The Power Box is a great addition to emergency and survival kits.
Powerful and Versatile
The Power Box can produce up to 20 watts. It can directly charge a full range of portable devices. Because it is so powerful, it can charge more than one device at a time — like a smart phone and a tablet. Since it can be cranked for long periods of time comfortably, it can be used for higher power applications that it cannot charge directly. Simply charge an external battery and run your appliances, either directly from the external battery or through an inverter.
Small, Lightweight and Portable
The Power Box folds, in seconds, to the size of a shoe box — 12 x 5.5 x 3.5 inches. It weighs just 4 pounds, 11 ounces making it very lightweight and portable. It is smaller and lighter than an exercise bike. It provides similar cardio benefits. And it generates electricity.
Highly Efficient Design
The Power Box is designed to be very efficient. It converts the generator output to 120 Volts DC with 85% efficiency. 120 Volts DC is compatible with all switching chargers — the type used with all portable electronics, because they are also very efficient.
Any device with a switching charger of less than 20 watts will work with the Power Box. This includes all modern cell phones, smart phones and all Apple products.
