The SideWinder itself is small and light (3 oz). The package comes with a carrying case, 4 phone power adapters (Audiovox, Kyocera, Ericsson, Motorola v60), and cable.
The crank in the "rest" position is recessed into the case. It flips out easily and is easy to operate.
We tested the SideWinder with a Motorola v60 cell phone. The hook up is straightforward and the plugs are clearly labeled. It is virtually impossible to do it wrong. However, the two ends of the interconnect wire are NOT interchangeable, so don't force it if it doesn't fit :-)
Built into the case is also a white LED... which means you will always have a handy crank powered flashlight! A nice little bonus!!!
We really like this little gadget and it will be included in the Rainy Day Magazine's travel accessories for the summer.
