and we thought hydrogen-based portable charging device has dropped off the chart. well, apparently it hasn’t. the Brunton Hydrogen Reactor Portable Power Pack is just one of them and it is one handy off-the-grid power supply for those who prefer not to put their mobile devices to the risk of fire, or extreme heat. power is generated by the way of mixing hydrogen from the rechargeable cells with oxygen from the atmosphere, without producing harmful emissions or byproducts like a gas-powered generator does and you don’t need to be at the mercy of the sun, like solar chargers do. you won’t even have hazardous batteries to dispose and also, you won’t be sucking on earth’s natural resources like fossil fuel. the juice generated can be used to charge an iPhone via USB port up to six times per hydrogen cell.
when a cell is expended, simply replace it with a full cell and it will just keep going. well, we know the product name sounds a little intimidating (blame it on nuclear technology, if you will), but the product is actually totally safe, and at just 5.3 inches long and 240 grams (8.5oz), it is super compact enough to be packed along for your many days in the wilderness. just don’t try bringing it on an airplane, cos’ this is definitely still a no go onboard of any flying tin can. you can pre-order the Brunton Hydrogen Reactor Portable Power Pack for $149.99. expected availability would be from November 15, 2013.
p.s. a word of advice though, you may need permit or license to export the Brunton Hydrogen Reactor Portable Power Pack from the U.S. and similarly, if you are not residing in the U.S., you local authority might need to clear this too. just thought we should clear the air a little.
p.p.s. while researching for this, we read that this is actually “licensed, reworked, and improved version of Horizon’s portable fuel-cell charger, rebranded for campers and hikers.” so, i guess it didn’t fall off the chart after all.
