Festivals can be a great experience. They’re full of fab bands, over priced booze and girls wearing wellies, but power friendly they ain’t, and most electronics tend to die on the hardcore 4 day visit. Well worry about your mobile staying in juice no longer! Sure you may have already invested in one of the great solar chargers available, but if you haven’t got the spare cash for that another good choice might be to use a PowerPump.

Orange are unveiling the Orange Power Pump at Glastonbury, which is a foot powered battery charger that works with your own legwork! It uses kinetic energy from an air bed foot pump to power your mobile and will boost your battery for around five minutes.

If you’re lucky enough to be going to Glasto this year you can try it for yourself in the Orange tent.
