Scientists discover that urine can recharge your smartphone
Now, we are not suggesting that you recharge your Samsung Galaxy S4 by peeing all over it. We wouldn't even do that to a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, which is water resistant of course. So far, the technology allows users to generate enough power to allow a user to send a text message, surf the web and to make a quick call.
So don't be surprised if sometime in the not too distant future, instead of looking for an outlet to plug your phone in to recharge the battery, you will be looking for the nearest rest room.

Something good comes in pissing someone off after all.
"If you want to piss me off, do it on my phone."

Download a troll video and make a shortcut to it on your android phone and change the icon to the temple run one then change the name to Temple Run. Thats what I did.

If I had an S4 I would Pee on it after Samsung let At&t lock up the bootload like Verizon. Good thing I did not upgrade yet.

now they just need to develop an open-standard pee port so you can recharge all your mobile devices on the go. they should probably develop a privacy cubicle so we don't have to find a restroom just to 'charge'

Would be willing to try this on a iPhone. If it doesn't work, no harm done

*Honey why are you taking so long in the toilet? I'm just charging my phone sweetheart*

This is disgusting. But I'll entertain it anyway so wait how much charge can I possibly get because the normal person doesnt pee as long, as you would physically charge a phone for about 2-3 hours. I know you can't possibly get a full charge while peeing on your phone. lol
