The future of phone batteries
Phone batteries nowadays really don't last too long. It is something pretty much everyone hates, but soon the low battery life on our phones may be over.
A firm which manufactures tiny hydrogen fuel cells that can power batteries for up to a week, has signed a massive deal to put this technology into the future smart phones.
The company, Intelligent Energy, confirmed the deal but didn't disclose who they've signed it with, referring to them only as an 'emerging operator'.
The acting Managing Director for Intelligent Energy's Consumer Electronics said :
"We have been working with the [manufacturer] over recent weeks, demonstrating to them what our hydrogen fuel cell technology can achieve when embedded into a smartphone."
"We believe embedding fuel cell technology into portable devices provides a solution to the current dilemma of battery life and with consumers demanding more and more from their phones, battery innovation has not kept up.
"What we offer is a solution that is clean and efficient and means consumers could be truly mobile and free from the constraints of the grid."
The fuel cell can already fit into the iPhone 6, but only if it has been modified so that there is an air vent to allow water vapour to escape.
It sounds like we will get to see these batteries in phones soon, and I can't wait to not have to charge my phone for a week, it will be amazing.
