The Similar devices powered by a battery, drones suffer too weak independences. It is unusual to see models exceed the 20 minutes of flight. Therefore difficult to imagine home delivery services with lightweight drones if the range is low.
The British company Intelligent Energy, which had already made about her by integrating its batteries fuel in an iPhone 6, to guarantee him a week without recharging, just announced that it will present a new drone in an occasion of CES 2016 to be held from 6 to 9 January next in Las Vegas.

Attention however not be so oriented that the drone to the prototype battery to embedded hydrogen. The company says that this “range extender” (enlarger scope) combines a battery and a lightweight fuel cell.
According to Intelligent Energy, it would offer more flight hours instead of the small half now. But autonomy is not the only interest of this technology. The hydrogen battery Intelligent Energy is recharge trait average in two minutes, against one or two hours for conventional batteries. The drones could, therefore, fly longer and more often.

Finally, another advantage over the tests with drones only fitted with a fuel cell or battery coupled to a battery; the British company noted that its hydrogen batteries produce less vibration, which allows obtain a better image quality when used his drone to shoot.
Intelligent Energy should provide more information about its technology, its availability and its potential rate in early January. The company will also present other battery models to equip smartphones and tablets.
