Orange Brings Wind Power to Phones of Glastonbury Revelers

For last weekend's Glastonbury Festival, GotWind.org partnered with mobile firm Orange to launch the REcharge Pod, a mobile phone recharging station powered entirely by wind.

The companies pitched a windmill-mounted tent where people could charge phones without using ordinary power sources. The pod recharges 100 mobile phones per hour; any unused energy is stored in its Manbat battery bank.

This was the REcharge Pod's second year at the Festival. Thanks to in:fluencia for the tip.
