Ben Udkow sent me an email this morning telling me that I have to test this product… 😉 It’s the YoGen Max; a foot operated, portable charger for laptop computers. I’m all for trying alternative energy solutions, but would you buy / use something like this with your laptop? It’s bulkier than a typical AC adapter brick, so I can’t see many people carrying this around with them in their laptop bags. For me, the only time/place I would use this type of power source would be where there wasn’t an AC outlet handy. Camping? During power outages? I guess you could get a calf workout and power your laptop at the same time 😉 The YoGen Max isn’t yet available to the public, they are taking orders from resellers and distributors. I’m curious to see how much something like this costs.
