'Intelligent Energy Ltd' has developed an iPhone 6 with a built in hydrogen cell battery. The development is said to give the phone up to a weeks battery life.
The patented fuel cell created small amounts of electricity by combining Hydrogen and Oxygen, leaving only small amounts of water vapour and heat as a byproduct. It is said that the only design alteration required to an iPhone 6 is the installation of small vents on the rest of the aluminium case, to allow for the vapour to escape.
Henri Winand CEO of Intelligent Energy stated
“To our knowledge this has never been done before. We have now managed to make a fuel cell so thin we can fit it to the existing chassis without alterations and retaining the rechargeable battery. This is a major step because if you are moving to a new technology you have to give people a path they are comfortable with”
We are yet to confirm exactly when this technology will be see in mobiles, but we do eagerly await battery life of longer than a day!
