Eco-friendly technologies are always a better option, because they favor both innovative gadgets and the environment. Major companies fighting for supremacy, like Google, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft, are now seeking to green up their names and increase profit margins at the same time.
After announcing its commitment to replacing the power and USB cables provided by Volex with earth-friendly, halogen-free ones, Apple is trying to maintain its current position as an eco-conscious leader, by adopting fuel cell batteries, in an attempt to make its products more reliable and better for the environment.
Apparently, such a change would allow users to use their MacBook, iPad and iPhone for weeks in a row without having to worry about battery drainage.
Apple announced its eagerness to implement this concept a while ago, but now it is believed that actual improvements are expected this summer.
Fuel cell technology is capable of making devices more powerful and much more eco-friendly. This is good news especially for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s enthusiasts, hoping to have to charge their gadgets less often due to this much-awaited green technology.
Rumor has it the new iPhone 5 could benefit from these awesome changes, keeping potential clients far away from outlets for an extended period of time.
The technology taken into consideration by Apple is quite similar to the one applied by the auto industry, while coming up with engines for eco-friendly cars.
“Fuel cells and associated fuels can potentially achieve high volumetric and gravimetric energy densities, which can potentially enable continued operation of portable electronic devices for days or even weeks without refueling,” reveal Apple representatives.
Developing fuel cell batteries could be interpreted as a smart business strategy in the long term. Potential improvements conducted by Apple could further inspire the entire industry, boosting the popularity of this green technology and making it implementable worldwide, in an attempt to offset the global carbon footprint.
