The dumbbell charger / product

The dumbbell charger

At present, people Hand grasp rely heavily on mobile phones. Even if the phone is out of power, people
can't wait to plug in the charging cable to check the messages online. I noticed this phenomenon,so I designed this product.Firstly, the mobile phone out of power need to be inserted into the dumbbell.
Then the internal generator will generate electricity by the semicircular movement of the lifting dumbbell, to charge the mobilephone. This product allows people to leave the phone for a while and exercise. In terms of the appearance, my inspiration came from traditional Chinese bamboo plants.
