Hydrogen Power Cell: 7 days' smartphone power, no electricity needed
In a new development in smarter charging rather than focus on wireless charging why not become free of the need to ever find an electrical power source? Well a company in the UK known as Be Upp has done just that with the development of its portable hydrogen power bank. Rather than have to remember to recharge the power bank just swap out a spent hydrogen cartridge for a replacement from the company.
Whether you like to go away camping and are always worried about where you can charge up or when you're wanting to always ensure that you can keep your mobile electronic devices running even in the event of a power cut, then the Be Upp hydrogen fuel cell technology could be ideal for you.

Use Hydrogen Power & Go Truly Unplugged
The Be Upp charger has a thin, long elegant design with curved edges using aerospace-grade materials and Nanoparticle technology too.
Each fuel cell provides approximately 7,000 mAh of battery power or 25wh with a Metal Hydride battery and replaceable hydrogen fuel cell which could output to a smart phone via the standard USB 2 port. To put that in perspective, that is just shy of the battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 tablet and more than twice the capacity of the latest iPhone 6 Plus.
The Upp Fuel Cell measures 119.5mm x 40mm x 48mm. Using the protective Dust Cap Adaptor, the measurements are 124.5mm x 40mm x 48mm
The Upp Fuel Cell weighs in at 235 grams with each cartridge separately weighing 385 grams.
The charging device has been fully tested for safely. The recharging technology has been tested on several iPhone models including the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iPod Touch and iPod Nano, as well as several Android smart phones too.
