SURG Battery-Free Products from Omega Electronics

TORONTO, Canada - Omega Electronics has announced the new SURG line of products, all of which operate sans batteries. Products include radios that power up via hand cranking; flashlights that turn on by shaking them; and butane-powered portable burners.

The AM/FM radio features ultra-bright flashlights that are charged via the hand crank-powered Dynamo. Cranking it up for 90 seconds, and the radio will provide up to 25 minutes of listening time. Alternatively, it can be used with a battery back-up or DC adapter. The splash-proof radios also include LCD clocks with alarms, and earphone jacks.

To power the Eternity flashlight, shake it ruggedly for about 30 seconds: this will induce enough voltage in the internal magnetic coil for about five minutes of light. The three super-bright LEDs within the flashlight never need to be replaced, says Omega; and the flashlight will float on water.

The butane burners are lightweight and portable for easy transporting. They can reach a working temperature of 1300°C, and can be easily re-filled with butane.

SURG products range in price from $9.99 to $49.99.
