Nokia Lumia 925 charged in seconds with the use of... lightning!
In case you were wondering, this is where it gets weirdly awesome, for the duo had the goal of taming the raw energy of a lightning by simulating the charge produced during a strike, with the aim of charging a Lumia 925 through it. Well, what do you know – it worked, or so Nokia and the scientists behind the experiment claim:
A flashy gimmick or an actual, useful experiment? Nobody can really tell just yet, though Nokia is certainly taking the opportunity to remind us of their early adoption of wireless charging technology. That would be quite alright with us, granted that Nokia comes up with an equally zippy real life application for this.

and somewhere in China hundreds more iPhones explode as they attempt this trick.

Be careful while lightning if you have L 925 in your pocket, it can be charged within seconds and will charge you as well. :)

This is so cool.. This could be a very useful study..

At the end of the video, the phone is charged just for a small percentage of its capacity, so what's the point of all this? It's a nice marketing video, a fun thing to watch, but when on the same day you read about the Fujitsu Arrow A (on this website) that can be actually be charged in 10 minutes with an amount of energy sufficient for the whole day you think that Nokia could invest their money better (i.e. do actual research instead of marketing).

this is a lot more than a marketing video !!!

Wall output is more than enough for a phone to charge very fast. The only problem is nobody has found out how to do it without doing major damage to the phone or battery.

Not true. Check out this battery site.http://prieto.everyperspective
she invented a faster charging better battery.

what!! , are you going to charge your mobile using lighting?, its a cool idea, but how exactly will it be used in practical life ?
