Our good friend Kellvin over at Latino Review has gotten his hands on a couple of interesting photographs from the highly anticipated Chev Chelios sequel Crank 2. They feature the new robotic heart that Chev will receive after Chinese mobsters steal his real, nearly indestructible heart for nefarious reasons.

Latino Review's anonymous source states:
Chev has been outfitted with an ABIOCOR TOTAL ARTIFICIAL HEART. It has an internal battery that will pick up once the battery belt dies. It's like a reserve tank but only good for one hour.
The Abiocor is designed to keep you alive only for a couple of days while waiting for a transplant. It is not built for strenuous activity.
The internal battery charges wirelessly through the transcutaneous energy transfer system - two coils, one internal and one external that transmit power via magnetic force across the skin without piercing the surface. The internal coil receives the power and sends it to the controller device. Basically Chev has to keep his body electrically charged to keep his ticker running. Whereas in the first movie he needed adrenaline to stay alive, in Crank: High voltage he needs jolts of electricity to stay alive.
Crank 2 will be released in 2009.
