Charge Nokia Phone using Peepal Leaves - HOAX

Aug 17, 2007 9 comments
Referring to a news by National News Agency,Nepal, few Newspaper daily made headlines regarding 'Charge Nokia battery using Two peepal leaves'.According to this hoax, using two peepal leaves and attaching it to the charging nodes of nokia battery, would charge the battery within 10 seconds. I see no botanical explanation how is it possible. I've read some facts about bio-gas,that's proven and practical things. But regarding this
hoax, i don't know why people are not using their common sense. Those unprocessed peepal leaves would do no way the miracle.

To my dismay, some popular blogs of Nepal have emphasized on this topic. May be researchers are not interested on this type of hoax or may be not releasing any Public notice because of falling prey to such hoax. There is no scientific reason at all if it's possible. If it would work that way, i'm sure, a mobile phone company would loose a part of their mobile accessory manufacturing profits.

Lastly, don't fall for such hoax. If you've tried or experimented using peepal leaves to charge your Nokia Cell phone, then i don't blame you. First time mistake is human nature, Second time committing mistake is stupid and third time committing mistake is 100% fool stamp. Don't be a fool.
update - Aug 18th 2007:
Recently, I sent an inquiry to Nokia Care, and i was notified that all the informations are biased and untrue. Hence, this misleading procedures of charging Nokia Phone have been officially contradicted by Nokia Communications.

How Nokia in India knows what is happening in Nepal?

How modern company can claim such things? Brother, better go to Nuwakot and see what is happening there?
Good luck to U!

Modern company can claim because we are using their product and they know their product better than us.

In India too, it's happening according to some new source.

Believe it or not but it works, I have tried my self. May be the company doesn't wants to let other know about this just because they will see fall in their accessories sales. And why scientist doesn't research is up to them. We can't force anyone, or may be they already started researching
