Future MacBooks Could Be Powered by Fuel Cells

The latest patent application to come out of Cupertino could allow for new Macbooks that are slimmer, lighter, greener and couldprovide power for days without a charge. What's the magic ingredient? Fuel cells!

Dredged up by Apple Insider, Apple's patent indicates that hydrogen fuel cells would be used to send and receive power from a battery. But they also admit that developing a product which is small enough and cheap enough to be placed in one of their laptops will be a challenge.

I'm behind anything that increases battery life on mobile devices. Put a nuclear reactor in there for all I care, just let me go for longer than a few hours between charges!

Yes thats true. Most of the current mobile devices has a miserable battery life time. This is a hope!

That's great news in my opinion considering how much I need to charge my phone and stuff. Here's hoping developments like this come quicker, sooner.
