Life Changing Invention

British Columbian Teenager Invented A Phone Charging Coffee Mug

An 18 year old BC teenager by name Ann Makosinski has invented a phone charging coffee mug which is called the eDrink. She made it with a layer of peltier tiles that uses the temperature differences between their two sides to generate electricity. Users can make use of this energy by plugging their cell phones into a USB port on the bottom of the cup and sip their coffee as it charges. The power produced by this cup is enough to charge a phone for 30 minutes at a time.

According to Mental Floss, the invention was inspired by her friends whom she observed always had low phone battery and also that their coffee took too long to cool down, so she decided to make this one solution to solve the two problems. It is said that in 2013, she had also used peltier tiles to create a flashlight which is powered by the body heat released from your hands as you hold it: the invention earned her a $25,000 scholarship, meanwhile the eDrink earned her a $50,000 grant from Shell in December.

The teenager said that sometime this year, she will like her eDrink and flashlight to get into the market especially those in developing countries. I think Nigerians should get ready to thank Ann as our low battery days are numbered because even though we don't drink much coffee here hot water can do the trick . * wink
