Ever wished you could do away with all those annoying cell phone chargers that are cluttering up your space? Have you ever taken to cursing cell phone manufacturers for their extremely wasteful and inconvenient policies to manufacturer different types of batteries and chargers for every make and model of phone known to man? (We certainly have). Well here’s a design  that promises an eco-friendly end to the hassles of multiple batteries and chargers – by offering up a single standardized battery that can fit in every type of personal electronic device. The Green Cell battery  is safe, environmentally friendly, made without toxic chemicals, and — here’s the best part — when it runs out of juice on the go, it can easily be exchanged for a freshly charged battery at a local vendor machine.
Green Cell  is designed to fit into every electronic device on the market allowing you to finally eliminate your random collection of archaic chargers and A-to-Z batteries. The idea of working within a standardized format is one giant step forward when it comes to reducing landfill waste and endless upgrades. Granted this would entail a whole new marketing strategy for some electronics companies, but we feel that the market is ready for a shift in how folks do business, i.e. with both their users and the environment in mind. If Green Cell  can be as accessible and as energizing as a nice cold CoCa Cola or a packet of M&M’s, just think where we are headed in terms of universal happiness and the greening of our needs and desires?
