Charge Your iPhone 5/5S With Your Hand Anytime, Anywhere [Kickstarter]

A new Kickstarter project called Mipwr Dynamo, is a hybrid charger and backup battery case for your iPhone 5/5S, that features a push lever for producing 30 seconds of talk time for every 1 minute of pumping. In addition to a concealed push lever, Mipwr Dynamo also contains a built-in 400 mA battery for charging directly via a micro USB cable through any power outlet.

The developers of Mipwr Dynamo say that they have successfully produced a working prototype that functions just as they had envisioned. They travelled through China, selecting the materials for molded parts, locating a suitable lithium ion battery, and designing the electronics circuit board.


  • Electronics: Lithium Ion 400mA battery – enough power for 2 hours of talk time
  • Dimensions: 5.36″ h x 0.787″ t x 2.42″ w, wt = 3.4 ounces
  • Dynamo: electromagnetic induction principle to charge internal case battery. One minute of actuation (60 pushes) = 30 seconds of talk/text.
  • Included: micro USB cable for charging and instructions
