Charge up your Nokia with a little help from the nature

Call it a green initiative or the possibility of consuming less electricity, Nokia, the pioneer of smartphones has come up with the most innovative idea of “harnessing the power of lightning for personal use”, in collaboration with the University of Southampton.


In a recently released demonstration video, Nokia shows that a Lumia 925 absorbs power from an artificially created high-voltage arc; that proves its withstanding capacity to this kind of experiments as well as Nokia’s high quality and durability. According to the company, this experimentation is just “… the company’s continuing research to increase the already outstanding reliability of its products”.

The Nokia Lumia 925 of the Lumia line running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 and which is already becoming a flagship product of Microsoft already bears a 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.5” AMOLED display, 16GB/32GB internal memory, rear and front camera, and a standby battery life of 440 hours in 3G. A little thinner and fitter in hands than the earlier released Lumia 920 and also not much different than the newly rolled out Lumia 1020; any of the Lumia phones are not yet ready with the feature to get charged up when there is a thunderbolt.

However days are not far behind, when on a stormy weather if you ever get stuck with a dead Lumia on some deserted highway… just wait until a thunder strikes!
