Submission + - Bristol Scientists Charge Phone With Urine (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: Scientists from Bristol UK have developed a fuel cell which can charge a phone using microbes to break down urine. The group grows the bacteria on special carbon anodes. At present the cell is as big as a car battery, and generates power too slowly to be very useful, but the group hopes to either develop a portable version, or a home version to be installed in bathrooms, where it might help power the shower and lighting.
