Charge your ipod with an onion

Filed Under: electronics

iPod hacks are wildly popular right now. Innovative ways to charge iPods are particularly the rage because they appeal to our geeky DIY attitude and turn everyday items into functioning charging tools. This video shows how to charge an iPod with an onion and electrolytes.

What you'll need
  1. 1 white onion
  2. 2 cups of Gatorade or Power-aid
  3. Screwdriver
  4. iPod and charger
Assuming that your onion has absorbed at least one cup of energy drink after following the instructions in the video, it should be able to charge your iPod for 15-20 min. I wonder what your co-workers will think when they see your iPod sitting on your desk plugged into an onion via USB. If nothing else, it's a fun experiment and a conversation starter, and really the only reason to do this is to prove it can be done.
