Electricity Zipper / zipper

Electricity Zipper
Electricity Zipper

Charging mobile phones is necessary in daily life, but it is not available in some places because of lack of power supply. Electricity Zipper provides you with a portable power output, as it can produce electricity when zipping and store energy in the zipper puller with a USB. The zippers are made of magnetic materials, and will generate suitable magnetic fields. Inside the zipper puller is a closed electric circuit, which will cut the magnetic induction lines to produce electricity and store it when the zipper slides up and down. Electricity Zipper can be used in all kinds of daily necessities, through which power is always available to you.
