Pull over dude – I gotta charge my cell phone

Not by plugging it in, but by peeing on it. Some ingenious guys in the far east have created a battery that delivers 1.5 volts of juice for a duration of 90 minutes, from a single drop of urine.

A pretty cool way to harness energy that would quite literally be pissed away. Other bodily fluids supposedly work too.

    Wow the things they come up with these days…maybe we’re not to far from “pissing in a Mr. Coffee and having it come out Taster’s Choice.” (Quote from Dana Carvey doing Ross Perot on the Kevin Costner film ‘Waterworld)

    Forget charging your cellphone battery—what about jumping your car? Pop open the hood, drop trou, and recharge your car battery!

    “Hey Earl, you need some jumper cables fer yer that thar pickup?”

    “Naw JoeBob, ah got all the juice ah needs, raht here!”

    Oh dear God. On second thought…

    c2 – I “done” fixed it. That is a pretty scary thought – I could see jethro’s all over the south whizzing away under the bonnet, while not making sure that their hood supports are functioning properly – imagine that disaster.

    This battery would have been a good addition to the redneck episode of Top Gear – I finally watched the entire thing on bittorrent – it was brilliant.
