How Many Oranges (Yes Oranges) Does it Take to Power an iPhone? (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightWondering just how many oranges it takes to power an iPhone? (I bet you weren’t.)

No matter, because you’ll still want to see this well produced and interesting short video featuring delicious Jaffa oranges as an alternative power source for one of Apple’s most popular products.

(See apples and oranges really do go together!)

Kind of takes green -er, orange energy to a whole new level don’cha think?


Obviously, using 2,380 orange slices to charge an iPhone battery isn’t practical at all. Still, the video is a fun geeky way to see the scientific principal in action.

If you’re a teacher or parent who wants to try your hand at powering things using various fruits and vegetables to help make science come alive for your children (or you’re curious about the method yourself), then you won’t want to miss this helpful link.

Veggie power indeed.
