Youtuber Spiritplumber devised a cheap and relatively-simple way to extend your cell phone's battery life. Recording video on smart phones is notorious for draining your juice and he claims this workaround can last a few hours with just a couple of bucks. Or you can go the less ugly but more expensive route and just pick up one of these guys.

Meet Vince Hannemann, God of Kludging

Favorite
- -

I've seen people who have kludged bikes, air conditioning units, computers, and even full automobiles. Never though have I seen a man who has kludged an entire property.

That man is Vince Hannemann, or as filmmaker Evan Burns calls him, the Junk King. Check out the video, and feast your eyes on a personal temple built entirely out of old crap. It's a kludge kathedral, Notre Dump, Angkor Wat with extra "wat." It's passion that could easily be mistaken for pathology, but I will say this: if the latter is true, then he is the coolest damn hoarder I've ever seen.

Remember this kid? The kid who was building his own house in his parents' backyard to secure a mortgage-free future? Well, he's finally finished his home-on-wheels, so it's time to take a look at the finished product. Hopefully no more bees will build their hives inside it anymore!
