Coca Cola-Powered Cellphone: First Nokia Green Phone

Coca Cola-Powered Cellphone: First Nokia Green Phone


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.

Usually cellphones use a lithium batteries as their energy source but not only this concept mobile phone. This one was powered by Coca-Cola, so that’s why we could call this phone as the Coca Cola-powered cellphone. 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.

The bio-battery invented by Daishi Zheng generates electricity from carbohydrates, using special enzymes as catalysts. In the process, the device generates oxygen and water. The designer claims his sugar-based bio-battery lasts up to four times longer than a fully charged lithium battery and is much easier to recharge: just pour some more ssugar drink.

Daishi Zheng found that phone battery as a power source, it is expensive, consuming valuable resources on manufacturing, presenting a disposal problem and harmful to the environment. So if Zheng’s Coke-powered cellphone turns out to be real, it would be a significant breakthrough.

Our congratulations, an awesome work, Mr Daizi Zheng. [DaiziZheng via TreeHugger and Dezeen]
