Brunton Hydrogen Reactor Can Keep You Off The Grid For Months

F-REACTOR-BL_1024x1024

This isn’t the first or only hydrogen reactor capable of charging small electronics. Some of you may remember the Powertrekk fuel cell charger from back in 2011. But we feel like the technology has matured quite a bit since then and Brunton’s implementation is our favorite. The Hydrogen Reactor from Brunton uses disposable hydrogen cells to generate enough electricity to recharge your phone 6 times. After those 6 charges, just change the cartridge and keep going. Matter of fact, you can keep doing this indefinitely, as long as you’ve brought enough hydrogen cartridges with you. The beauty of this setup becomes apparent when you consider the weakness of other solutions in the case that you decide to be away from the grid for an extended period of time. While a portable battery pack may be enough for a few days, it’ll fall way short of the near infinite amounts of power you can generate with the Brunton unit. Each cartridge is $20 and of course that adds up to a lot, but being able to stay connected while you’re away is worth a lot more for some people. The generator itself is $170.

    Unless you have a way to harvest unlimited hydrogen, then each hydrogen cartridge (for a whopping $20!) is for all intents just another form of battery. So $20 to charge your phone 6 times!? Crazy. Why not use solar power?
