Festival problem may be solved by selling used mobile
7 June 2010 — 12:00 PM
Youngsters preparing for this year's Glastonbury Festival may find selling a used phone and investing in a pair of Wellington boots helps them to stay connected during the event.
Orange has launched its Power Wellies, which use the energy created from heat in a person's feet to charge a mobile phone.
Putting the cash gained from selling an old device towards a handset that is compatible with the footwear may be an economical - and green - move.
Every night, festival goers can plug their mobile into their boots, where the power generated throughout the day will top up the battery.
Dave Pain, managing director at manufacturer GotWind, says: "Wellies are now the staple festival footwear [and] the Orange Power Wellies not only keep you dry but they also provide a crucial eco electricity source."
Glastonbury kicks off on June 23rd at the Somerset venue and runs until June 27th.
