The Autonome Smartphone Has Snap-Out Prongs for Easy Socket Access

Remember your old reliable flip phone that only needed to be juiced up once a week? Despite the progress of technology, you likely find yourself toting your wall charger with you wherever you go. Since many Androids and iPhones have 24 hour cycles, one needs to be ever prepared to feed his device more power on the go.

The Autonome Smartphone is a concept that aims to make this process a little easier. It does not ambitiously claim to have an extended battery life, but it incorporates an ingenious solution for shedding those tangled cords in your briefcase. Francois Rybarczyk's design reworks the function of the handset's exterior, suggesting a durable shell with a magnesium unibody frame. Most significantly, the Autonome Smartphone incorporates a pop-out wall plug with an additional battery. With this, the cellphone can be connected directly to the power source or the prongs can be detached and refueled separately.
