A company in the UK has now created a prototype based on an iPhone that not only delivers enough power to power an iPhone for a week, but is also environmentally friendly. The company has fitted a specially designed fuel cell inside a normal iPhone 6, which develops power by mixing hydrogen and oxygen, and the result is a phone that won’t need recharging for a week. When it does, hydrogen gas is pumped in through the modified headphone jack, rather than plugging the device into an electrical wall socket.
“We have managed to make a fuel cell so thin we can fit it to the existing chassis without alterations and retaining the original battery.” -Henri Winand Intelligent Energy’s CEO
It’s only a prototype for now, but the company is looking at ways to market the product. Intelligent Energy said while the tech is still two or three years from being prepared for the general public, they did say however
“it’s about how quickly does our partner want to press the button and get on with it?”
