Soon, lighting bolt to charge mobile phones
London: Researchers have copied the idea that Mary Shelley displayed in her much acclaimed novel `Frankenstein` to charge a phone with a lightning bolt.
Researchers conducted the experiment in collaboration with Nokia at the University of Southampton.
The team used a transformer to recreate a lightning bolt in the lab by passing 200,000 volts across a 30cm (12in) air gap, the BBC reported.
Neil Palmer, from the University of Southampton`s high voltage laboratory, said that they were amazed to see that the Nokia circuitry somehow stabilised the noisy signal, allowing the battery to be charged.
