How does it work
We say “POWERED BY YOU” and it's true.
Go Kin uses walking, a green and healthy choice, to power electronics. You provide the power.
That is the simple definition. Truly though, Go Kin is much more. Using our mobile app you can adjust the resistance for your legs. This allows you to increase or decrease how hard you want to work. If you want more exercise or want to walk with a slower friend and still get a good workout you have that option.
The app also tells you how much power you are generating, the battery level of your on-board battery, speed, distance, calories burned and your carbon footprint.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
Two retractable cords extend from the bottom of the pack to hook on to tabs on your footwear, or the ankle bracelet we provide. Each time you take a step, the cords engage gears, electronics and a motor in the Go Kin, generating power.
The Go Kin fits into the bottom of a fanny pack or day pack. The fanny pack is designed and sold by us. We are, however, designing a “fit kit” that will allow the Go Kin to be retro-fit into many existing packs. You would have the ability to move the Go Kin into any pack for any activity.
HOW DO I CHARGE MY ELECTRONICS?
Two USB ports allow you to plug in and charge your electronics. There is an on-board lithium ion battery (5600 mAh) that is available for charging. You do not need to be walking to charge your electronics. Go Kin can also be charged from a wall outlet using the DC Jack. If you have a solar panel, plug it in and use the Go Kin as a hub for your electronics while away from the grid.
GO KIN IS A GREEN AND HEALTHY POWER SOURCE THAT IS AVAILABLE ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.
