Nokia Innovation: Charging Lumia 925 in seconds using power of “lightning”. Video demo.

Innovations at Nokia never cease to amaze and push boundaries of tech as we know it. In collaboration with University of Southampton, Nokia has been able to harness the power of lightning, ( yes you heard it right 🙂 ) for charging Lumia 925.

“We were excited by this challenge presented to us by Nokia,” Neil explained. “Using an alternative current, driven by a transformer, over 200,000 volts was sent across a 300mm gap – giving heat and light similar to that of a lightning bolt. The signal was then stepped into a second controlling transformer, allowing us to charge the phone.”

What happened next surprised even the scientists, and Neil adds: “We were amazed to see that the Nokia circuitry somehow stabilized the noisy signal, allowing the battery to be charged in only seconds.”

While this experiment can’t be and shouldn’t repeated by us in our homes, we can at least watch it happening in the video below.

    The battery can’t be charged in seconds

    it’s a 2000 mAh battery, meaning it theoretically needs 2 A for one hour to be fully charged

    to make it charge in one minute, you’ll need to supply it with 120 A, it’s impossible for the battery or the phone circuitry to take that amount of current (the battery will explode if the wires aren’t vaporized before that)

    and BTW, it was a simulated electric arc, it’s use is not to provide the phone with more power, it’s purpose is to show that it’s possible to use lightning to generate power for electric devices (which is highly impractical, you won’t be going to chase a storm to charge your phone>>>)

  • is this real ?
    i think this imposable to charge using power of lighting

      That’s why, it is such a big news. Making the impossible possible 🙂
