Tag Heuer's Self-Charging Phone

Short of lugging a charger around everywhere, there’s not really much to be done about the threat of a drained phone battery, that most modern of dramas.

Close some apps? Sure. Turn off Wi-Fi? We’ve tried it. Turn it off completely? Impractical. It seems that the faster, smarter and sleeker our phones get, then the more fruitless our attempts to prevent them running out of juice become.

Tag Heuer may just have the answer with the Meridiist Infinite, a uniquely hard-shelled phone which comes with an invisible photovoltaic component built into its sapphire crystal screen, providing just enough energy to charge the device, even on standby - and though it's been in the pipeline for a while, it's now ready to order.

By way of tribute to the first dashboard chronograph made by the Swiss firm back in 1911, only 1911 pieces have been made of this mega phone, forged from grade 5 titanium, carbon and rubber.

But then of course with those credentials, the biggest fear won’t be the battery emptying, it’ll be your pockets.

Prices are available on request from Meridiistinfinite.tagheuer.com
