This personal hydroelectric generator powers your devices by harnessing the force of a river

For devices which need some juice during socket-less travels in the great outdoors, South Korean startup Enomad offers a handy solution. The Estream is a portable charger which converts running water into electricity through a rotating turbine. About the size of a water bottle and weighing in at less than two pounds, charging takes roughly 4.5 hours to complete and can sustain the battery life of smartphone or action camera three times over.

Beyond charging, Estream also doubles as a waterproof lantern with two different levels of light intensity and a strobe setting for sending signals such as an SOS. Currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter, the super-early bird will cost $180 and is expected to ship around January of 2017.
