Yeah, but those flashlights use LEDs, which consume VERY little power. A cellphone, on the other hand, uses a LOT of power. You would have to shake for hours to get a minute or two of talk time

And shaking in your pocket isn't the same thing as shaking it like you're ******* it. The former will generate little to no usable power.

I don't know why you are bashing Apple's products in this thread, there are plenty more to do that in. This is about Apple's patent sitting, and why we don't like the idea of this patent.

The shaking idea could work, except for the problem of size. The type found in flashlights takes over all of the area originally for batteries. That would be a huge area to add to a cell phone and make it look like one of them 1980's style phones.

Apple will probably never use this patent, not until someone else invents a similar device that actually works well and is affordable. Then it's lawsuit day.
