Orange Power Wellies - power collected in the power generating sole is generated via a process known as the Seebeck effect.
Twelve hours of walking gets you one hour of phone charge
Orange Power Wellies convert heat from your feet into electrical power to charge your handheld
European Telco Orange is showing off an interesting phone charging prototype – a set of Wellington Boots with a ‘power generating sole’ that converts heat from your feet into electrical power to charge your battery-powered handhelds. You'll need to walk for twelve hours in your “Orange Power Wellies” to get an hour of battery life but we still think it's remarkable that such significant amounts of energy can be harvested from normal human activity. In order to decrease the length of time you need to charge your phone, try dancing or running, because the hotter your feet get, the more energy you produce.
