Today we’re unveiling another one of our repurposing projects. We’ve done several of these throughout the 10 years we’ve been in business such as our Mac Jewelry project a few years back.
Today, we’re announcing the iPry.
The iPry quite simply is the coolest bottle opener ever. Having a party? Bring out the iPry and have your friends drool over your totally unique bottle opener. Unnecessary, yes. Cool, absolutely.
The iPry is made from used non-working power adapters. Rather than have the adapters end up in a landfill, we decided to repurpose them. If you have a non-working adapter already, then don’t buy one from us! Keep yours out of a landfill by cutting the end off and sticking it in a kitchen drawer.
As the iPry is made from used adapters, the condition of every iPry will be slightly different. These ARE NOT NEW. The iPry units will have scratches and blemishes consistent with used adapters.
What’s the point?
The mission of PowerbookMedic is to reduce the amount of electronic waste going into landfills by providing services to increase the life cycle of a gadget and by implementing recycling programs for electronic components that have reached the end of their life cycle. One way we achieve our mission is by repurposing otherwise useless material.
Where do all these used adapters come from?
We purchase large volumes of used devices in working and non working condition from individuals and businesses via our Gadget Sale program. Have a device to sell, then click on the Sell It navigation tab to find out what we’re paying for it.
