Picture the moments where a supply of eBooks on one’s phone would come in most handy. Say; one gets stuck in an elevator. One visits a friend but he or she is late and can't let one in. One is driving and encounters mechanical problems. These are all situation in which charging a phone might prove a challenge.
There is, theoretically, a solution to this. There’s manual chargers; just rotate away and you breathe life back into your device! I’d bought one, as my car doesn’t have a cigarette lighter, and thus won’t charge my satnav. I unfortunately found out that so much rotation is required to produce the slightest noticeable increase in battery power on the satnav one runs a serious risk of hurting oneself providing it. But would an iPhone need so much less power it would become feasible to manually charge it?
I tried it. The answer is no. There seems not to be such a thing as a free lunch! Another lesson learned…
It could be so beautiful!
