i saw an article heading for a group of scientists from the University of Southampton  who have teamed up with Nokia to explore the possibility of harnessing the energy of a lightning bolt to charge a mobile device. This is now happening in some other countries,can someone help me how this is being used by  other Nokia mobile holders.

it's something they're dreaming of achieving, let's take physics in consideration and the size of a mobile device. They are using an artificial and controlled environment. this surge can reach 3 million volts than the 200 000 it was tested with. If you notice 2500v can roast a human being... and with the size of the phone and silicon parts, Lithium Ion battery and glass included in these devices, logically it is impossible. One thing you have to remember is scientists experiment for a living, that's how they make money, whether they can achieve it or not they can create something for you to pay and make a living through.
