at the festival: Orange launches festival-friendly phone charger
Power Pump to debut at Glastonbury
Another year, another tool to ensure you can keep in touch with your friends at the Glastonbury Festival, come rain or shine. We're proud to unveil the Orange Power Pump, an ecologically-sound phone charger which will make its debut at this summer's bash.
Created by renewable energy experts GotWind and no bigger than a pack of wet wipes, the airbed pump is fuelled by legwork alone, harnessing the power from your foot-stomps to drive a turbine that converts energy into an electrical current, no socket required.
It's not the first time Orange has introduced green methods to keep your mobile juiced up. Last year's Dance Charger and Recharge Pod were popular successes, showing innovation in the pursuit of phone-power and staying in line with the ethos of the festival.
"As official communications partner of Glastonbury," adds Ian Smith, head of sponsorship at Orange UK, "we pride ourselves on creating innovative, fun and ecologically aware products which enhance the Glastonbury experience by allowing festival goers to stay in touch with their friends onsite."
Orange will be showcasing the Orange Power Pump at this year's Glastonbury Festival, taking place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from 24th - 28th June.
