Mobile Mobile Cell Phone Charging Station

Haven't you always wished you could buy a cell phone charge on the street like you buy a pretzel or a soda? Alright, humor me and pretend you have. Krista Winters and Matt Chick have made that dream a reality by offering emergency cell phone charges in New York City, outside of the Virgin Records in Union Square.
Winters' and Chick's business, called Mobile Mobile, charges $.50 a minute for use of their giant battery and a compatible power adapter. You can also charge up other portables, like your iPod.
Some countries in Asia and Europe use cell-phone charging stations or vending machines with emergency juice, but they don't seem to have arrived in the US yet. I'll just hope that Mobile Mobile comes to a nearby corner soon.
