Some users get issues when their battery doesn’t last even for 24 hours. Complaints about the ‘fruit’ battery were always a big issue.

Would you like to learn how to extend iPhone 6 battery life and make it last for a week? One British company developed a special battery that can make iPhone serve the whole week in between charges. This is the reality and the company Intelligent Energy might help Apple to boost battery life and move the famous ‘fruit’ technology forward.

Customers will absolutely be happy if their iOS handset running iOS 8.4.1, upcoming iOS 9 or earlier firmware version lasts for a week long. Right now this sounds more like a rumor or secret wish of millions of consumers yet such a hydrogen battery exists as prototype.

The firm developed their own iPhone 6 prototype that does remind of a current-generation iPhone 6. It has some minor differences with the original smartphone and one huge difference – this prototype lasts 7 days on one charge which is surely impossible on the original iPhone 6 version created by Apple.

The new technology is a combination of oxygen and hydrogen. This is how it can create electricity. The iPhone built by Intelligent Energy has the fuel cell system in it. It’s not known how much such battery system could cost. The firm promises cheap week-long lasting iPhone 6 batteries but the exact price isn’t named.
