Cola is fine and good, but my addiction to caffeine will likely preclude my need to charge my Pandora. I know the shame of it! Trees, however are everywhere, and in abundance. I wonder how many I'd have to string together in series to charge something in a reasonable amount of time.
I've seen a Cola powered cell phone recently(maybe on Engadget?)

“The concept is using bio battery to replace the traditional battery to create a pollution free environment. Bio battery is an ecologically friendly energy generates electricity from carbohydrates (currently sugar) and utilizes enzymes as the catalyst. By using bio battery as the power source of the phone, it only needs a pack of sugary drink and it generates water and oxygen while the battery dies out.
Bio battery has the potential to operate three to four times longer on a single charge than conventional lithium batteries and it could be fully biodegradable. Meanwhile, it brings a whole new perception to batteries and afternoon tea. “
