U.K. company makes hydrogen-powered iPhone battery that can purportedly last a full week

Intelligent Energy has already created a modified version of the iPhone 6 that uses its patented hydrogen battery technology. The firm has added small vents to the back of the modified iPhone that let out water vapor waste produced by the battery. The battery itself is runs on hydrogen gas that is “refuelled via an adapted headphone socket,” The Telegraph writes.

Even more intriguingly, The Telegraph believes that the company is “working closely with Apple” on the project, so future iPhones could have long-lasting batteries that put current models to shame.

“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,” Intelligent Energy CEO Henri Winand told The Telegraph. “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.”

The company believes that the product is likely two years from being ready for the market but it’s definitely something we’ll be watching carefully to see if it really delivers on its promises.
