EcoMech 1 will keep you powered after an emergency

It’s always wise to be prepared for the worst. If that fateful day ever arrives, the EcoMech 1 generator will produce enough power to keep you warm and fed — no fuel, wind, or sun required.

  • Is it possible to generate power with no fuel? Absolutely. Aside from wind and solar power, you can use a wind-up generator to produce power.
  • What is a wind-up generator? It’s a standalone generator that works like a manual winding watch or a wind-up radio. You simply turn the crank to generate electricity.
  • What is the best wind-up generator? EcoMech 1 is about the size of a large cooler, and can produce enough power for a strip of sockets.

The modern wind-up radio was devised back in 1991 by Trevor Baylis, a British inventor. Baylis imagined his radio could help those affected by the HIV/AID crisis at the time, and with other emergency situations. Without any fuel, sun, or wind, people could hear the latest updates with a quick crank of the built-in handle.

EcoMech 1 takes that principle and scales it up. This hefty generator lets you produce 4,000 watts with a little arm strength, meaning you can power a wide range of household appliances. It’s the perfect back-up solution for your garage or basement.

How do you generate power without fuel?

When the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing, a hand-powered generator allows you to turn effort into energy. It’s clean, efficient and reliable.

EcoMech 1 is the perfect backup generator

EcoMech 1 is one of the most powerful generators of this type ever created. It’s the size of a large cooler, with a crank handle on the side and an AC outlet on the front.

There’s also a battery inside EcoMech 1

When you need emergency power, you simply turn the crank. This puts potential energy into an industrial-grade spring inside the generator, via a system of high-torque gears.

EcoMech’s industrial spring holds the energy

Just as a bike turns your legwork into impressive speed, EcoMech 1 upgrades your efforts. You can either use the power instantly or use the built-in battery to store energy.

These gears provide extra power

There have been many failed attempts over the years to make a hand-powered generator of this size. But the makers of EcoMech 1 are confident in their technology.

Never miss your morning coffee

There are two versions of the EcoMech 1 generator. The larger version can run any 110V appliance — you can even plug in a power strip and use multiple sockets simultaneously.

You can run nearly any appliance from EcoMech 1

For portable power, there’s the backpack model, EcoPac 1. Although less powerful, this version can still charge a laptop, or a small handheld tool such as a drill.

“If you’re tired of being without energy at the most inconvenient times, then EcoMech 1 will be your new most valuable asset. From emergency preparedness, camping, prepping, or general use. EcoMech 1 will power it all! ” — GenEvolutions

The good stuff

It’s reassuring to have a completely self-sufficient power supply available at all times. EcoMech 1 is also a great option for camping, and for powering tools in remote areas.

Too good to be true?

Trevor Baylis believed that hand-powered generators of this size couldn’t be efficient. Given that the inner workings of EcoMech 1 are currently under wraps, we will have to see the finished article to pass judgement.
