Pinoy Pride: Filipino Invention Honored

Early last week, Aquilino Tubigan Jr. received a phone call from the President of the Philippines congratulating him for bagging the Gold Medal at the International New Product Expo (INPEX) held in Pennsylvania USA last August. His invention, the "I-Charj Coin Operated Cell Phone Charger" was honored for showcasing technological innovation while satisfying a need.

The I-Charj is coin operated; For Php5.00, it will charge your dying phone for a good 10 minutes. Now, I dunno about you, but a vendo-type phone charger could be really be a lifesaver if making a call on a dying phone is the only way to close a deal -- and you don't have a charger or there are no outlets in sight.

Yup, it's amazing as is. But get this: The I-Charj Cellphone Charger also works on ALL cellphone models out in the market today.

Congratulations Mr. Tubigan. You truly make all Pinoys proud.
