Pee-Powered Batteries


Yes, there really are urine-powered batteries out there. But let me ask you something - since these batteries also run on water, what in god's name would bring someone to actually use urine to power these things? I mean, unless you're stuck in the desert, or on a life raft (I'm thinking salt water might be somehow corrosive to the batteries), and you have a desperate need to use something battery-powered (like a flashlight, what were you thinking?), why the hell wouldn't you just use water to recharge?

And that's probably why these batteries will never become main"stream" (grin) as their use will be limited to those people who are either adventurers or live in drought conditions...

I guess if urine touch with your inner adventurer...

I bet they're marketed that way for guys who get a kick out peeing on things and need an excuse? Very funny!

yeah, see now, guys would be able to pee on them without much issue but can you imagine the mess for the rest of us? I think I'll stick with water to power my batteries, thank you very much! :)
