FAKE BATTERY CHARGING APPS PRANK
Here’s a prank that will work on someone that is easy to trick. The prank is all about making the target believe that you can charge your phone by setting it in the sun or by shaking it. If the device is low on battery, tell the person about this cool new app that allows you to charge your phone with sunlight or by shaking it. If they ask you to show them, go to the Google Play Store and download either Android Solar Charger or Shake to Charge.
Now, these apps work in different ways. Android Solar Charger detects when your phone is out in sunlight. After installing it, return the phone to the target and watch them try to charge their phone with sunlight. Of course this would not work. The Shake to Charge app will show you how much battery available. Give the phone to the owner and tell them to shake it. Once they start shaking the phone, the battery will animate to show that it is charging. Now watch them tire out and then check their battery percentage to find out that it has not changed at all.
