Cardboard Battery Concept Gives you a Biodegradable Uptime Hit

By Gary Cutlack on at

This clever little cardboard battery pill has been created by designer Tsung Chih-Hsien, and, if ever made real by a sympathetic Chinese tech giant, could offer small hits of battery power in a pocketable form to help alleviate the modern personal crisis that is not having a screen to look at.

The Mini Power emergency battery is only a concept, of course, with the design suggesting that you'd buy a sheet of spare batteries then break one off as needed. The cardboard casing means its recyclable, plus it wouldn't require too much in the way of packaging. [Yanko via Fastco]
