Orange Power Pump charges your mobile phone


Orange has launched a new Eco friendly charger which will be used at this years Glastonbury Festival to charges mobile phones, the Orange Power Pump.

The Orange Power Pump is basically a foot pump that you hook your mobile phone up to and it will recharge the battery, it basically works by the pump passing air to a charger which features a turbine, the turbine then spins and converts the energy into power.

Not a bad idea, and apparently the same amount of foot pumping that is used to inflate a pillow will give a 5 minute charge on your battery.

    Can’t find any specs on how much power is generated per stroke/seconds/minutes or any other measurement??

    Not an efficient design, bad actually. The design takes mechanical input provided buy leg muscle and compresses air. Then fed buy a hose and directed to spin a fan blade, connected to a small generator. A bit of a Rube Goldberg-ish. Yet another example of designers willingness to design anything that might sell even if is counter productive to the end user for it’s intended use. It is a more effective calorie burner than other possible designs for the intended purpose. SS

    can the power pump be used for anything else other than a mobile phone?
