The Koreans have created a portable hydroelectric power station to charge smartphones

On the technology festival South by Southwest held in Austin (Texas), the South Korean company presented Enomad portable hydroelectric power plant (HPP): once assembled, it fits into a Hiking backpack. It is reported Lenta.

In 2014 Enomad built on the river Cheonggyecheon stream (flows in the Park in downtown Seoul) small terminals for charging mobile devices running on hydropower resources. The success of this project inspired engineers to further miniaturization of the device.

Portable HPS in shape and size similar to a thermos. After removing the cover the user reveals four screws, and then the device can be lowered into the river or stream (or to tie to the stern of the kayak). Water, the torque of screws and a turbine that charges a battery capacity of 5200 mAh.

Under normal conditions, charging takes approximately 2 hours. After that, the user is advised to remove the screws from the base — this operation will open the access to the USB ports to recharge portable electronic devices. According to the representative of the company, the capacity of the battery is enough to charge two iPhone 6s. In addition, the device can be used as a lantern.

On sale Enomad will arrive in July 2016. To implement it will be through Kickstarter for $180 dollars.
