I watched the video, and was immediately struck by the fact that you were using a DC potato with a plug in AC charger. My knowledge of electronics
says it shouldn't work. I tried to get my phone to charge using it's charger and a real battery, (AAA), and nothing happened. (I tried both
polarities, even though it shouldn't matter to an AC charger)
I think it's a hoax. At best you're going to be stuck with a dead phone and a potato with a screw and a penny stuck in it. At worst you'll die of a
zinc allergy you didn't know about when you eat the potato later.
