A team of scientists from Duke University have created an electrical current capable of charging a mobile phone has from microwave signals.

Using fibreglass, they captured various forms of wave energy converted microwaves into 7.3 volts of electricity via a device.

US researchers, who compared the energy output to solar cells, believe that this new discovery could help provide power to people living in remote areas who are not connected to a power grid by harvesting satellite, sound, wi-fi and energy signals from mobile phone towers in the future.

The full report will be published in December in the Applied Physics Letters journal.
