How can you build green jobs in Ohio (did I say OHIO?) while you make sure your phone is charged during Hurricane Sandy?  Easy.  The nPower® PEG is the world's first passive kinetic energy charger for personal handheld electronics.  Placed in your backpack, the PEG harvests your kinetic energy as you move, storing it in a battery for when you need it most - when there's no power.  

Best part about the PEG in this election year?  It's Made in OHIO, right here in Cleveland. Click past the orange hurricane track squiggle to learn more.

A backpacker on the Appalacian Trail said she'd trade a day's food if she had to, just to have the peace of mind the nPower® PEG gives her.  CNN called the nPower® PEG "best tech for disasters."  Soldiers in Afghanistan get power while marching with the PEG.

The nPower® PEG harvests the kinetic energy of anything that moves.  Attach it to your dog.  

In fact....

....if it's WINDY, when a HURRICANE happens,

....all you have to do is hang it from a tree, and it will harvest that energy, too.

Here's the PEG hanging from a train collecting the bounces for your phone.

Here's video of the PEG taped to the inside of a SXSW startup bus harvesting the bumps in the road.  

Here's the PEG hanging from a hammock on a windy night charging while you sleep. part?  



Keep your phone charged during the Frankenstorm and build green jobs in OHIO while you're at it. Right before the election, too.  Get it online at REI, or if you're in NYC and need it RIGHT NOW, visit the REI store in Soho.  We're there too.

OH!  And if you're in Cleveland when you come to Ohio to help GOTV, come visit our awesome neighborhood.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
