We need something that converts the body heat from holding your phone to power for the battery. I would never have to charge again
@stux actually such technology does exist and there are watches on the market that charge by this very principle.
@stux been looking at those solar powered phone cases that will change your phone on the go. Not what your saying but seems interesting.
@Weetile I have plenty haha! I'll post some more if they come up, maybe someone has the capital to realize it someday! 💪
@stux fingers crossed 😌 🤞 here's one of my ideas: how about a gym that pays you to go to it? all the exercise equipment is hooked up to generators and they sell the power you produce and give you a share of the profit 🔋 🔌 💸
@stux What you're looking for is a thermoelectric generator. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoelectric_generator
Unfortunately, as others have said, the temperature difference wouldn't be enough to generate the power needed to charge a phone and such generators are only 5-8% efficient.
@stux or we could harvest the energy of movement in the 🛏️. If you can't get to sleep and rolling around... You have enough for youtube.
