British design firm Intelligent Energy has just revealed the first ever hydrogen-powered battery capable of powering your Apple iPhone for a week. Currently still in a prototype stage, the battery utilizes a built-in hydrogen fuel cell that is refuelled via the headphone socket, allowing you to go a week without recharging your smartphone. Reports claim that the company is working closely with Apple, allowing the company to incorporate the fuel cell system into the current iPhone 6 configuration without any other alterations to the layout of the device besides a couple rear vents so an imperceivable amount of water vapor can escape. Intelligent Energy is in the process of finalizing design and determining pricing, so stay tuned for more on this major breakthrough.
