The Orange "Dance Charge" – power your mobile through motion

Energy systems, Science

The Orange Dance Charge is a motion-powered kinetic charger full of magnets and weights, designed to keep your phone juiced-up simply from the movement of your arms. How many words do you think we’ll get into this update before resorting to crude references to masturbation?

We’re not particularly excited about what’s clearly a novelty item designed to generate a bit of publicity during the UK’s festival season and help Orange make a token effort to look like it’s a “green” company, but you sort of have to use awesome promotional photographs like this:


It weighs a teeny 180grams, although that weight is clearly doubled by the rather ugly Orange-branded towelling-based promotional band attaching it to that lady’s trim upper arm.

The Dance Charge will be viewable and shakeable at this weekend’s Glastonbury drugs/mud festival.
