Take It On Tuesday: Watermelon As Phone Charger?

by | Apr 7, 2015 | Social Media & Tech, Take It On Tuesday, Video

Have you seen that video(s) on YouTube where the guy puts a watermelon on ice, and salt… and eventually gets it to charge his iPhone?


That’s what I asked too. I was not a believer. So I decided to take on the task of seeing if the claim was hoax or truth.

I’ll give you one guess as to what I found to be the answer…

I don’t know if I did anything wrong.

And I’m lucky the banana goo didn’t destroy me charger.

And really… what’s the point and/or benefit of using a watermelong to charge your phone? I mean, I used probably half that container of salt. And the watermelon…

Well, maybe that was the problem. It wasn’t a very good watermelon.

Or did the watermelon go bad because it was impaled, frozen, and desperately salted.

We may never know.

Because I am not going to try that again because it was a HUGE waste of time and energy.

Plus my camera has a focusing issue and I’m mad at my camera too.

It all just left a bad taste in my mouth.

And an uncharged phone.

So much for that brilliant idea of carrying a frozen watermelon and salt around as my back-up charge plan.
