My wife showed me this video about a technique to supposedly charge your phone to nearly full in a matter of seconds by wrapping it in copper wire and wrapping the wire in aluminum foil.

I say it's a hoax but she's convinced. No I'm not going to try it myself.
What do the goons think? Is the technique demonstrated in the video feasible? If so, why isn't something like this available commercially?

If you're having problems you're either holding the phone wrong or you have tiny girl hands.
