When Reliance Jio's Mega Announcement Was Taken As April Fool's Day Prank

Some people on twitter called 'Jio Juice' announcement a prank ahead of April Fool's Day


Highlights

  1. Jio Juice enables Jio users to charge their phones without a charger
  2. Jio Juice announcement was made via a video that explains the facillity
  3. Some Reliance Jio users find the facility too good to be true
A day after announcing the much anticipated rollover of Jio Prime Benefits for one more year until March 2019, Reliance Jio made another tempting offer that is hard to resist for any mobile phone user. In a little over one minute long video, Jio promotes JioJuice, a new offering for the Jio users. The jio customers now don't need to carry heavy chargers or power banks. The Jio Juice allows the mobile phone users to recharge their phones by inserting the 4G SIM card. 

The users found the newly announced technological innovation quite incredible. Thanks to the announcement made a day before the April Fool's Day, some users on Twitter even took the liberty of comparing the mega announcement by Mukesh Ambani-led Jio Infocomm to an April Fool's prank.

A handful, however, called it a great innovation.

The Jio Juice allows wireless charging of mobile phones. This can be done by inserting the 4G data pack that enables transfer of energy through electro-magnetic induction.

In the video, a mobile phone user realizes that her phone is switched off while she is walking in the middle of the road. This puts her off and she stomps her feet in distress. And Jio Juice announces that here is the alternative. Now, she, or any Jio user, can simply insert a Jio sim in order to charge the mobile phone without having to use a mobile charger or a power bank.
Alex Thomas, head project Jio Juice, gives a small demonstration of the way it is to be done. "I insert my jio sim into my phone, and it starts charging," he says with a smile.

The video explains that Jio juice uses the wireless jio network to create an electro-magnetic field between the transmitter and the receiver. This enables a free transfer of energy through electro-magnetic induction turning true 4G data packets into refreshing energy packets.
