There are a lot of charging solutions out there: chargers based on sunlight, movement, thermoelectric effect, external battery and juice pack cases. Each one is restricted by various constraints. While some require sunlight, others need to be pre-charged.
What's ChargeBite constraint you ask?
ChargeBite just needs 2 friends! No precharging, no cables and no other special requirement.
Whether you're in a pub, hanging out with some friends, eating at a restaurant or relaxing on the beach, as your iPhone runs out just look in the eyes of your responsible friends and smile embarrassedly... They'll probably agree to share some good ol' precious energy if you ask them nicely :)
