PowerTrekk – Charge your phone, with water

OK. Two words.

Smartphone. Battery.

Battery life, it must be said, is usually pretty bobbins if you actually use your phone for any length of time. Want to get from A to B? Get the GPS on, use the mapping feature, do a bit of browsing, record some video and …. oh.. the battery is flat.

Sure, there’s emergency chargers out there, you can charge from your car, at your desk or at home. But what do you do when you’re at the beach or out in a forest? Well, how about charging your phone with some… water?

PowerTrekk is a portable charger that uses water to charge your phone or camera. Prices are a little on the high side – €199 for the device (which is around £166) and then €1.99 (about £1.66) for a “PowerPukk” to convert to water into power. It seems like a high price to pay when you could instead have an emergency charger powered by batteries, but we’re going to be paying them a visit at Mobile World Congress to learn more.

Here’s a video of it in action. Click on for more pics.
