Neat little gizmo

I probably wouldn't backpack with this but nice little option to keep in your car or bugout bag. Wind/water turbine for charging USB devices, i.e.,headlamp, gps, flashlight, phones, etc. Only a little over 2 lbs.

I use a solar charger for backpacking cause I can charge while I'm hiking. But this would be great if you're camping in one spot for any length of time.

You can set it in a stream or just hang it in the wind.

I’ve almost pulled the trigger on buying a similar model several times.

huh. not a lot of streams in Texas I could use it with. Maybe wind. I like this solar thingy here. And it is on sale. Might take all day to charge some flashlight batteries but still.

to have both would be optimal.

Yes, both would be nice. Solar for sunny days, the turbine for streams or windy days. I'm thinking it would be way more effective in the water as opposed to typical winds.

If you are not off the grid and out of cell range, you are not backpacking. That is a hike IMO.

This is true! But when you're out of range you can still use your phone for a GPS, topo maps, music, books, movies and well, basically everything a cell can do. Plus I always carry a Satellite Comunicator/GPS with an emergency SOS beacon. Many headlamps now are also rechargeable. I know it's not old school getting out in the wilderness stuff but I've done plenty of that. Damn, things sure have changed!

My phone's GPS will not work without cell tower signal. A sat phone or standalone GPS would be great.

I am rarely that far out.
