The Vodafone VIP Recharge Truck truly shows just how much cellphones have become a necessity in our day-to-day lives. Although created specifically for big public events such as festivals and concerts, at its core it addresses the fear of not being connected constantly.

The Vodafone VIP Recharge Truck is an 18-wheeler truck located solely in the United Kingdom -- for now, at least. Weighing 44 tons, it boasts a retractable staircase as well as a secure bank of lockers that can charge 2,000 cellphones of different makes at once.

Considering its uniqueness and almost universal appeal, it is no surprise that the Vodafone VIP Recharge Truck is booked for 11 festivals. The company estimates that it could charge as many as 72,000 phones throughout those events.
