It is hard to believe when you are told that you can charge you smart phone with any type plant. But Barcelona based company called Arkyne Technology has made this into reality using their product plant pot called Bioo Lite.

Bioo Lite uses the process of photosynthesis by plants to power up electronic gadgets like phones and tablets. Concerns about environment and ecosystem initiated this project. Bioo Lite provides the greenest and cleanest source of electricity for charging up your gadgets.

Bioo is a portable plant pot which permits one to charge your phone 2 to 3 times in a day. Bioo comes with all the necessary accessories required which includes fast USB adaptive charger.

So how exactly does it work?

During the process of photosynthesis, sunlight converts carbon dioxide into oxygen and organic compounds. These organic compounds are then broken down by bacteria in the pot, discharging electrons which travel through nanowires. It created energy near to 3.5 V which is good enough to charge your smart phone and tablet. But this is conceivable only when plant in the pot is alive.

Innovations like this can help reduce extensive use of electricity in a very eco-friendly way. To watch the wonders performed by Bioo Lite, check out the video below:
