Emergency Phone Charger That Uses Your Drink!

Emergency-iPhone-Charger

Hey good people, found this during my Internet raids.

This device called the Epiphany One Puck, will charge your phone using the warmth or coldness of your drink. It not only holds your drink but charges it too! Cool yeah?

Developed by Epiphany Labs, the one Puck smartphone charger requires just hot or cold source to charge your smartphone and other gadgets. The One Puck uses a Stirling engine, which employs a fixed amount of gas that is sealed inside. Changes in temperature create pressure, which in turns help power the unit. Heat sources such as a hot or cold drink, ice or even a candle provide enough power to the Stirling engine to fully charge your smartphone(I’m not sure of Blackberry’s though :p), iPod and other USB charging devices drawing 1000mA or less. It is a two sided device, Red and Blue. Red for hot drinks and Blue for cold drink.

How?

Just yank out the One Puck charger, place your hot cup of coffee on it, apply hot mode and just like that, your mobile device is charging! Taking a cold drink? Place the cold drink on the charger, apply cold mode and charge your phone.

The charger is tiny, lightweight and portable, therefore suited for any situation; be it in the office, Cafeteria or when traveling.

The Epiphany One Puck could make the perfect gift for the office worker in your life and for anyone who drinks a lot of coffee or iced tea.

It looks like a really useful gadget. It is expected to be available from March this year

Would you be willing to spend money to purchase this charger?

  1. I’m working on assembling a
    network of Nigerian bloggers
    who blog on issues and trends
    and ideas in/on economy/
    economics, banking/finance,
    energy, oil and gas, environment
    & climate change, agriculture,
    gender, Africa, politics,
    technology, media & journalism
    etc.
    I tweeted last week asking
    people to send me links to blogs
    focusing on those themes, I got
    very few responses. That
    perhaps says something about
    how uncommon that kind of
    blogging is. Celebrity/Fashion/
    Entertainment blogging is by far
    more popular. (I understand of
    course that many people blog on
    a variety of topics, so it’s
    important to say that I’d
    generally define a blog by the
    kind of content that most often
    appears on it).
    I realise the importance of
    having more people blogging
    actively (and not necessarily
    commercially-driven), following
    up on stories traditional media is
    missing or ignoring, and even
    putting up fresh coverage of
    their own.
    The idea is to encourage more
    blogging along those lines, help
    develop interest and capacity,
    and build a network of Nigerian
    bloggers who understand their
    critical place in the larger media
    ecosystem.
    As a first step I’m inviting
    interested persons to a Blogging
    Seminar on Tuesday May 7, 2013
    (9am to 2pm), in Lagos.
    Topics will include:
    Reporting, Sourcing &
    Following Up
    Video Blogging & Citizen
    Journalism
    Social Media, Analytics & Web
    Tools for Bloggers
    Opportunities & Resources for
    Bloggers
    It’s free to attend, but by
    registration only . Spaces are
    limited (25 persons max). If
    you’re currently blogging on any
    of those issues, or would like to
    start blogging, send an email to
    wowe.media@gmail.com, with
    the following:
    Short biodata
    Brief summary (not more than
    250 words) of your blogging
    experience (If you don’t have
    much of blogging experience
    then share something on your
    blogging ambitions/
    aspirations)
    The themes/topics that
    interest you.
    Your blog address
    Twitter handle (if you’ve got
    one)
    Send on or before Monday April
    29, 2013
