This Gadget Charges Your Phone With Salt and Water

Really.

JAQ uses salt and water to power your devices

Hydrogen fuel cells aren’t just for powering drones and futuristic underwater cities. Next week at Mobile World Congress, the innovative Swedes at myFC will showcase JAQ, their second-gen product capable of fully recharging a phone by simply slipping a super light, thin salt-and-water-filled card into it.

Of course, the product’s name is purposefully ironic, since you’ll no longer be constrained by having to find a wall jack to recharge your external battery, phone and whatever small USB devices you don’t want drained.

If you’d like to pre-book on their site, that’s not an obligation to buy, just a way to save your place in line. They appear to be selling it as a monthly subscription service totaling about $65 a year.

Okay, we may say this a lot, but that really is a small price to pay for portable power and peace of mind.
