This New Apple Patent Could Revolutionize MacBook Charging

A new patent filed by Apple aims to increase the battery life of your MacBook. The company hopes to increase the battery life of its popular laptop lineup not by hours, but rather by days.

The company’s patent is aimed squarely at using a new type of fuel cell system developed as an Intelligent Energy source.

The battery is based on a hydrogen powered battery that reacts with oxygen and generates energy. Your computer could potentially run for weeks at a time before needing to have a hydrogen refuel.

I wouldn’t expect this technology to arrive at market anytime soon but it does show the company’s continued commitment to going green. Apple’s new 2.5 million sq foot headquarters will feature a zero impact rating when complete thanks to solar panels and other technology.

Here’s the patent filing originally spotted by¬†9To5Mac.
