Product Description

With the nPower® PEG, you'll have backup power for your hand-held electronic devices when you don't have access to a wall outlet

The nPower® PEG is a hybrid charger that accepts a charge from your kinetic energy and via USB. All you need to do is start with a fully charged PEG, place it vertically in your bag, and go about your daily activities. As you walk, run, or bike your PEG will continually top off its internal battery so that you'll have power when your handheld devices battery is low.

I was excited about this product, since I like to bring "tech toys" with me while doing day hikes, and the nPower Peg would give me the assurance that my devices would get charged while out. The ability to charge off 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.

I charged it at home off my computers USB port and charged my MotoACTV fitness watch - which worked fine. However, I wanted to do a real world test of the charging potential for the kinetic charging, so without charging the PEG after, I put it in my backpack and went out on an 8 mile test hike. 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 smartphones (and future iPhones with the Lightning adapter) and rely on iGo for additional adapter tips. Presently, iGo does not make an adapter tip for the Apple Lightning connector. Unfortunately, this is a issue with Apple restricting manufacturers for manufacturing their Lightning connectors. I've contacted nPower PEG for information on this, but I have not received a respons and 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. And after reading reviews and complaints people have posted on this product, I wish I'd done my research first. I gave it 2-Stars since the concept is good but what's the point if the product doesn't work?

My wife was carrying around a charger and 3 batteries if we went out of town for a weekend. This thing never runs out of charge and we never have to worry whether we brought the extra charger. She keeps it in her purse. And ignore the other guy; you can't patent old tech. Can't wait for a small version of this so I can keep one handy.

Old worthless technology. Worse than solar lol. Overpriced, and only 20% phone increase. Just get a hand crank. Owner trying to pump and dump.
