An interesting research which allows orange fruits to charge up your iPhone has been unveiled. Science geeks pushed the limits by connecting dozens of oranges together to produce enough electricity to charge up the device.
Apple Apple could release a larger iPhone version, dubbed iPhone Math, alongside the long-rumored iPhone 5S in June.
Oranges can generate electricity by chemical reaction. Zinc nails in the segment along with the citric acid in the orange react to produce light. This simple concept along with hundreds of oranges in a circuit produces enough power for the iPhone. For now, it is inconsiderable light but displays a whole new dimension in the future.
The video demonstration involves a chef pouring out dozens of oranges on the kitchen counter. At first, she sliced them up and extracted juice out of it to create a refreshing drink. Then the table turns when she opened a science book with information about using copper, zinc, and more, until the oranges became a part of an unusual experiment. It takes approximately 2,380 orange slices to charge an iPhone, and a great deal of patience.
Fruits are natural sources of energy and many kinds are used to generate electricity. Citric acid is the main reason why fruits can be used as a source of electricity, even if it is very small in quantity. Here are some notable household sources which can used as batteries:
