We’re all looking for alternate, better, and more powerful ways to charge all of our gadgets. That’s half the fun of owning all these shiny things: finding ways to actually keep them powered. And while double-A batteries, or any of their brethren, work great for some things, and those AC wall chargers are constantly plugged in, we’re always in the market for something that we can take with us, doesn’t kill our batteries in the process of charging, and can last longer than we probably need it to. That’s why we’re happy to hear about the Horizon MiniPak.
The MiniPak from Horizon isn’t the only fuel cell charger out there, but it may be the best looking, and it’s certainly the cheapest. It comes with two refillable cartridges, which should mean you’re covered for awhile while on the go. Why? Because each cartridge has a life expectancy equal to about 1,000 AA-batteries. Using Hydrogen to power the cartridges, and therefore your nifty gadgets, means it will last awhile, and each recharge shouldn’t actually bleed you dry, either.
The best part of it all, besides the powering options, is the fact that you will be able to purchase it for only $100. And, we’re hearing that recharges are only going to cost about the same as buying a new pack of batteries. So, you should be saving quite a bit of money here, while still keeping all your toys fully charged. So, if you’re interested, head on over to Horizon’s website, and get one of for yourself. And of course, let us know in the comments if you take the plunge.
