The Piranha Dynamo Wind-Up Shaver

by Ally

Several wind-up flashlights have made the rounds, usually they are kind of a pain to charge up, but they make a good spare flashlight.  Plus, you can rely on them more since their batteries aren’t exactly going to die off.  Well now you can pick up a shaver that is powered only by you winding it up.  Which would make it ideal for a weekend of camping or if you’re overly committed you could use it on a regular basis.  You would have to have a serious passion for going green though.

If you’re wondering what it will take to get this charged up, one minute of winding equals out to 1.2 minutes of shaving.  Which means you either need to learn to shave fast or your going to get a bit of a workout trying to get enough of a charge to get a decent shave.  Once the battery is full it will work for up to 60 minutes.  It’s just going to take a little extra work to get it to that point.  If you’re feeling a little lazy though, you can hook it up to the AC charger.  To pick it up it will cost you £24.99 or about $44.
