It seems that Energy Supply's kinetic charger is discontinued, and the available stock remains very pricey ($230-ish). I'm wondering what are the alternatives for those of us who only wear Seiko kinetic occasionally.
Some people have some success with toothbrush chargers, but seeing that there are a lot more induction chargers available now, I thought maybe it's time to start a thread to keep track of people's experiments. Currently I'm aware of the following chargers but haven't personally tried them:
(1) Wii controller chargers. For example, Energizer made something called flat panel for Wii.
(2) Powermat or other iphone induction chargers.
(3) MTM Special Ops watches come with their own induction chargers which can be purchased separately directly from them. I'm wondering if they will work for Seiko kinetic.
(4) Fossil also made a line of watches with their own induction chargers: has anyone tried them on the Kinetics?
All of the above options, if they work, would be significantly cheaper than getting a dedicated Seiko charger like the Energy Supply ones
