• K-Tor Pocket Socket 2
Hi, I'm Ken Torino, president and founder of K-Tor and inventor of the Pocket Socket. It's been a great product for us and we're coming up on 10,000 units sold, and it's been great to see all the places and things that people have been using the Pocket Socket for, from keeping the lights on during Hurricane Sandy to charging up digital cameras for people going on expeditions in Africa and hiking in the Himalayans.
I'm here today to introduce to you our latest model of the Pocket Socket, the Pocket Socket 2. If you order one from us, it'll come in a earth-friendly brown box like this, open it like this, and there's your Pocket Socket 2.
The most visible changes in the Pocket Socket 2 are the coloring, you can see it now has an emergency yellow rubber band and nameplate, and the top and bottom of the case are patterned to make it easier hold while cranking. Not visible but equally important, there are 9 pieces of plastic in the Pocket Socket 2, 7 have been improved from the Pocket Socket 1 both from a design and the entire unit has been improved from a material standpoint to a stronger plastic. From a electrical standpoint, there's now a connector between the generator and the circuit board to make it easier to surface. And as always, the Pocket Socket works with a very wide range of devices because it has a standard 120 volts socket so you can plug in a charger from pretty much any portable electronics. Also work with light bulb, new iPad, Droid phone and an iPhone.
