British company powers iPhone 6 with hydrogen fuel cell

The British company Intelligent Energy has performed a rather interesting experiment – the company has powered an Apple iPhone 6 smartphone with a hydrogen fuel cell. The results of the experiment have been more than good – the device, whose battery does not last more than two days, has operated on hydrogen energy for a week.

Performing this experiment has been relatively easy – Intelligent Energy has used a miniature hydrogen fuel cell that has been then inserted in the iPhone 6. Moreover the original iPhone battery has been kept inside the smartphone chassis.

The problem with the new technology is that the hydrogen fuel cell has to be refilled. Intelligent Energy has thought of this as well – the cell can be refilled via the headphone jack but the company plans a cartridge that can be slotted into the bottom of smartphones, should a commercial version of this technology gets released.
