Mobile Phone Charging Wellies From Orange

Yes, you hear me correct. The mobile phone company orange have created a pair of wellies that can charge your mobile phone while you wear them.

These power crazy bad boys were launched at this year Glastonbury festival for the soak soaked revelers to try out.

They work by converting heat generated in the heal off the wellie as you move in them into an electrical charge. It goes without say that these aren't going to charging you phone in a hurry but they could get you out of a pinch if your caught short of a charger or an electrical supply. 12hrs of walking produces around 1hr of charge so if you do need to charge your phone this way you'd better let your feet do the talking and jog on.
