How to Charge your iPod using an Onion

Strange, right?

Recently, I found a weird video tutorial on gametrailers that claims to do so. Really, it’s a bit weird. Although, I haven’t tried it yet but it looks very convincing. If anybody among you ever tries this, please let us know about that. It will be good to know if it works the way intended to be. So, let’s start with the requirements for charging your iPod with an Onion.

  • 1 White onion
  • 2 cups of Gatorade or any other energy drink
  • Screwdriver
  • iPod and USB cable


  1. Make 2 holes on either side of the onion.
  2. Immerse that onion in a mug filled with 2 cups of Gatorade for about 30 mins.
  3. Wipe out excess fluid from the onion.
  4. Plug your USB cable (attached to iPod on the other end) into the onion.

That’s it. Below is the video footage of the above described process.

    Kanak, even my reaction was similar to this. I don’t even think this can actually happen.

    can u able to charge up similarly to mobile

  6. Rakshit says:

    Well, I don’t think this will work with mobile too. Mobile charging require greater voltage supply. We can’t generate that much by an onion and a energy drink.
