Apple uses unique hardware in its phone, one of which is the Lightning port for charging. You will see this port only in Apple devices and its charging cable is also different, so that only Apple devices can be charged. But what if you get a Lightning port in an Android phone or a USB-C port in an iPhone. Actually, a man named Ken Pilonell has done this amazing thing. Ken has modified the Samsung Galaxy A51 smartphone with a Lightning port, which can serve as both a charging and data transfer port for Android phones. Earlier, Ken Pilonell has also modified the iPhone with USB-C.
In fact, the Lightning port is found on Apple iPhones, iPads, and other devices in the Apple ecosystem. Apple iPhones don’t come with a USB-C charging port, but Pilonel did include it in iPhone models last year. The innovation to include the Lightning port in Android phones sees the Lightning port enabled for device charging and data transfer.
man shared demo video
Now Pilonel has shared a short demo video of the Samsung Galaxy A51 turning into the first Android smartphone with Lightning port. Tech Geek has promised a detail video of the transformation and it may be coming soon. However, the usefulness of this change is minimal, to say the least. But the developer insists he intends to bring balance to the world once the USB-C iPhone is made.
Innovation can increase charging speed
The good thing is, iPhone chargers can now be used to charge the Samsung Galaxy A51 modified smartphone. The ultra-fast chargers can boost the charging speed as compared to the traditional USB-C 2.0 charging available for the device. Pilonel’s detail video could help put his feat in the right perspective and open up other opportunities.
