Power This Phone With A Can of Coke


When choosing a smartphone or any mobile electronic device, an extremely important factor to consider is battery life and with the advanced technologies of lithium/ion it seems like it just keeps getting better. But what if you could recharge your phone by buying a can of Coca Cola at the nearest vending machine?

A designer, Daizi Zheng, has created a cellphone that has battery which runs on sugar or, in this case, sugar water. It is not a new technology by any means but in an age of eco-friendly innovation, this just might be an idea that could catch on greater than when it was first introduced. If a “bio battery” was used in cell phones today, they have the potential to last up to 4 times longer than conventional lithium batteries on the market today. Its only output after use would be oxygen and water, both very positive products, and being very biodegradable, which is fantastic for disposal.

    All this does is have the cola factories pollute the environment instead of the powerplants.
