M2E Power promises phones that charge when you walk

Sick of recharging your phone every day? Sick of the battery slowly losing power all day long? It comes with the territory with batteries, unfortunately. That may not always be the case, however. Imagine if your phone charged itself up as you walked around, never requiring a recharge at an outlet.

It may be possible in the not too distant future thanks to motion-powered electronics in development by M2E Power. The tech is based on the Faraday principle, "wherein energy is produced from the motion of a magnet passing through a coil." That means a phone with the tech inside would generate energy just by moving around, and M2E claims its system will generate between 300 percent and 700 percent more power than kinetic energy technologies currently available. Sounds pretty great to us.
