The device is a cigarette holder with one of dem Archimedes
screws set on a vertical axis in a chimney. The cigarette is
lit, the heat rises up and rotates the little generator on the
aforementioned Archimedes wossername.
And so, I hang around with this device in public, and for the
sum of a packet of Golden Virginia, the mobile device
owner gets their device back in working trim, assuming they
can see it through the smoke.
Yet another way smokers can be of invaluable service to the
public in general.Huzzah (has to take snort from oxygen

||You might want to use the Archimede's screw to lift
water through a small distance, then let the water
fall back down and recover the resulting heat using a
Peltier module driving dynamo connected to an LED.
Then a simple solar cell will collect the light and
power the phone. This should help to eliminate any
residual efficiency in the system.

||Via one of those wireless induction chargers, naturally..
||Just a reminder that "fags" is one of those words that
doesn't translate well across the pond.
||"Sucking on a fag round the back of the bike sheds" could be so easily
||...as could "Bumming a fag off someone"
||Real men share their fags with their mates.
||If you went to one of the better sorts of school in
England, you could bum a fag off your fag, whether
he was a fag or not. Although, if you were fagged
out it might be too much of a fag to bother. And if
you were feeling hungry, you could have a faggot
cooked over a faggot.

||Don't bother. They all know this, and do it on purpose.
