A mobile phone powered by sugar

We want to be accessible 24/7/365. We always carry our cellphones with us, no matter what. Even the most of us sleep with their phones close to them, not even 2 meters away from theirselves.

I do this too, and I miss my phone when it’s charging, so I can’t keep it close to me or I have to be in the same room. And what will you do when your cellphone battery runs out? Maybe, you’ll find a nearest electricity to charge it. But now you can charge your cellphone battery with a Coca Cola, and not only Coke.

What it is

Nokia invented a way improve the battery life 3 to 4 times longer as usual.

Usually cellphones use a lithium batteries as their energy source but not only this concept mobile phone. This is the first cellphone who use the bio energy to replace the battery role.

Chinese designer Daizhi Zheng has created a mobile phone that uses sweet drinks like Coca Cola instead of lithium batteries.

Mr Zheng has been working on this revolutionary device for Nokia, and claims he has come up with a way of using sugar-based drinks to power mobiles. Any sugar drink, even sugar-sweetened water would be enough to keep the phone running much longer than lithium batteries.

Why it’s Cool

Fuel cells powered by sugar are nothing new, but Zheng’s point seems to be that we shouldn’t forget innovative uses for the products we consume everyday. This way of using energy could be a great possibility for other electric devices.

Also a cool improvement is that the bio battery can operate for three to four times longer than a lithium-ion battery on a single charge.
