Vodafone UK has confirmed that a mobile recharging station will be traveling around the country during the summer's music festival season, enabling customers to top up their battery in usually field based locations.
One of the company's Recharge-Trucks, which is capable of charging 2000 phones at the same time, will be at this weekend's Isle of Wight festival and a host of other events throughout 2013.
The company is also experimenting with wearable clothing that generates electricity from body heat to recharge electronic devices.
The first to be tried are overnight sleeping bags.
