Trials On Using Urine To Charge Your Smartphone

Brilliant Scientists at Bristol Robotics Lab in the UK have developed a clever device to turn urine into electricity, so you can charge your smartphone.


Here's how it works. Using a collection of cylinders the device is filled with electro active organisms that feed off what they find in urine and waste water. Electrons are created as a by-product, which can then be turned into electricity and used to charge phones and power some lights.

The device was tested at Glastonbury and we can't wait to learn the results.  The possibilities are huge and could offer a much needed power source when you may not have access to any power outlets. We understand the device is currently a slow charge for smartphones but in time this is an exciting development and could answer some of the big issues around electricity!
