Travel Gadgets: Your Personal Power Plant
The Eco Media Player Revolution is bit bulky and not-so-cool looking, but it's a big winner as far as practicality goes. The Revolution really earns it's name through one huge standout advantage: It's hand powered.
Using a slide out hand crank, with only 5 minutes of work you can generate enough power to rock out for 45 minutes. Basically, you'll never really need to plug this thing in. Storage capability is 4GB and can be extended up to 8GB.
But wait, there's more! It also has a plug to charge up your cell phone as well. Not a bad device to have around when all your other batteries are drained and there's no power outlet in sight. The Revolution costs $240.
