The very first cell phone was created in 1946 by a truck driver who was simply running an experiment. The phone weighed around 80 pounds and consisted of a battery life which only lasted through 6 calls. By 1948, the very first hand held phone was created by Martin Cooper; the man responsible for taking mobile phones to a whole new level. This phone only weighed around 2.5 pounds. However, calls were not cellular yet and people still could not move around freely while talking on the phone. Phones were mounted into automobiles in the 80s, but it wasn’t until 1983; Joel Engel and Richard Frenkiel introduced the cellular concept to the world. They achieved this by putting towers just a few miles from one another, so people were able to make remote calls from their cell phones. People started to become more aware of this new idea and quickly jumped on board. This is considered to be one of the greatest breakthroughs in the evolution of cell phone and tablet charging.
