HYmini has just rolled out a handheld portable electronics charging unit which relies on wind and solar sources to keep its internal battery charged, which can then be dispensed into thirsty 5V appliances such as cell phones, MP3 players, iPods, PDAs, and digital cameras. Retailing for $49.99 a pop, you will now be able to harness both wind and solar energy, whereas most renewable energy sources tend to lean towards the solar segment like the Parasolar.

The lithium ion battery inside has a lifespan of approximately 500 charge cycles, where each full charge takes approximately 4 hours under direct sunlight. A 20 minute charge can provide up to 40 minutes of additional playback time for an MP3 player and snap another 20 images for a digital camera (without flash, presumably).
