In the past few years, we have covered various ways to charge a smartphone when you are experiencing a power outage or don’t have access to a traditional electrical outlet. Did you know that you could use plants to charge your phone? Three Chilean student engineers have developed a biocircuit device that harnesses plant energy and converts it to electricity to charge your phone.
E-Kaia uses energy produced by plants during photosynthesis and converts it into electricity. The device can allegedly charge a smartphone in under two hours. It will be launched commercially in late 2016.
