JAQ will recharge your phone with salt and water

Swedish manufacturer MyFC this week introduced JAQ – the world's smallest fuel cell-powered smartphone charger. JAQ is made up of two parts, a cradle and a slim fuel cell that slots into it. Fuel cells are environmental friendly technology which can generate their own electricity without the need for a power outlet or sunlight.

JAQ's fuel cells are made of salt, water and recycled materials. When the card is docked into the charger, hydrogen is created, recharging the connected smartphone. MyFC says each fuel cell provides 2400 mAh power, enough to fully recharge most smartphones. JAQ is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows-based tablets and smartphones.

JAQ will be available for purchase towards the end of 2015. Pricing for the device has yet to be confirmed, each fuel cell will cost around AUD$2.
