    Pee rechargeable batteries

    Link

    Do you remember the urine filtering machine that Kevin Costner used in Waterworld? Do you remember Waterworld? What was I talking about again? Oh yes, batteries. Aqua Power System has developed batteries that can be recharged using fluids such as beer, apple juice, cola, saliva and urine.

    Aqua Power System is of course a Japanese company. They call their leaktastic invention NoPoPo, short for No Policeman dont arrest me Im Powering my batteries. Actually its Non-Pollution Power. Both sound stupid but mine is funnier. Inside each NoPoPo battery is a combination of magnesium and carbon that generate electricity when mixed with certain fluids. The batteries come with a pipette so you can inject fluids into the battery.

    According to James Sherwood of Register Hardware, the life span of an AA alkaline battery falls between 1700 and 3000 mAh (milliamp-hours), while an AA NoPoPo battery lasts only up to 500 mAh. But Sherwood also says that existing zinc-carbon batteries have the same life span as the NoPoPos, so were not looking at some blue sky technology here. I do hope they refine and extend the technology so that it can power larger devices such as phones and PMPs. Would you buy an iPee?

    Ready to whiz in your batteries? You can grab a pair over at HimeyaShop for $15 (USD).
    Hmmm....

    Besides the obvious environmentalist remarks that will be made. I find it interesting that I can power my gadgets with my pee. :rolleyes:

    Well... In a weird way I would actually love to test if energy drinks or coffee etc had any effect on the recharging. Am I the only one?

    I could supercharge my battery with Red Bull pee.

    Powering them with anything other than pee is only marginally cheaper!

    What about Jagerbombs?
    Edited by Teck:
    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...

    Apple needs a cool shiny funnel so you can pee into your Macbook Pro when the battery runs out.
