Scientists invent Mobile charger powered by urine

Scientists have found a new way of charging your cell phone using your ‘pee’. Scientists with the U.K.-based Bristol Robotics Laboratory claim they’ve indeed managed generate electricity from human urine, enough to
partially power a cell phone.
They found that live bacteria breaking down urine creates electricity in the process. As an electrolyte, the natural pH within urine makes it a viable fuel. Researchers speculate that ‘smart toilets’ could make this experiment practical in just a few years.
“By harnessing this power as urine passes through a cascade of microbial fuel cells (MFCs), we have managed to charge a Samsung mobile phone,” lab scientist Dr. Ioannia Ieropoulos told the BBC.
