Coke Powered “Green” Phone

3’s What’s New blog pointed me to this Coke powered Nokia mobile. Daizi Zheng is behind this project and says:

“In order to use the bio-battery as a power source for the phone all that is required is a small supply of a sugary drink. Once the battery dies only oxygen and water remains. Bio-batteries are fully biodegradable and have, on a single charge, a potential life-span three to four times longer than conventional lithium batteries. Meanwhile, bio-batteries are a whole new way of looking at batteries and afternoon tea.”

I’ll try not to think of this the next time I consume an ice-cold bottle of battery fluid, I mean, a Coke.
