Get Your Groove On In the Shower with this Water-Powered Radio

The Water Power Radio by H2O will change the way you enjoy your news or music in the shower for the better. The usual waterproof speakers and radios that have been in the market for a while now work fine but with a catch that this all-new innovation doesn't have: they all need batteries to run. Live greener and better and save dollars by tuning in instead with the Water Power Radio.

H2O has come up with a breakthrough in battery technology and incorporates this into the eco-friendly products that they manufacture. The company has already released a range of clocks and calculators that run on water power but this time we're taking a closer look at their most recent release: the Water Power Radio.

The Water Power Radio is simply what its name implies it is. It derives its power from the water that runs through the tap in your shower and requires no other external energy supply or source.

The radio is designed to be fitted directly onto the faucet of your shower. When the water is turned on, it is made to flow through the integrated turbine generator that generates energy to power the radio. The excess energy is used to charge the built-in rechargable battery in the Water Power Radio so that you will still be able to use the radio while you towel off or brush your teeth.

The Water Power Radio is compatible with 99% of all showers and makes wise use of energy that would have otherwise been wasted. This gadget is the brainchild of Vivian Blick, who was the one who came up with the revolutionary wind-up radio, Freeplay.

The Water Power Radio retails for £34.99 from Tango Group, which is the company behind H2O.
