Web Series

Students in Nairobi create a dynamo that uses bicycle power to create electricity and charge cellphones!

It is estimated that in Kenya about 17,5 million of the total 38,5 million inhabitants own a mobile phone. But in rural areas electricity is a problem. Students of the university of Nairobi came up with the solution: the 'Smart Charger'.
The charger works quite simple: one connects it to the dynamo of a bicycle. The device transforms the power into electricity that can charge the mobile phone. After about one hour the phone will be charged.
