Looks like Apple will be upping the ante in the way its products use batteries!

Battery power is one of the inconveniences of the modern world: no matter how long you charge them, they always seem to run out.

STORY: New iPads Coming In February 2012?

Apple is hoping to change that, if we believe the stories we’ve been hearing about the hydrogen powered cells for batteries.

The technology poses environmental problems and is years away from reality, however.

Reports Ibtimes:

Hydrogen is known as the lightest and most common chemical element in the Universe. Using this element, Apple wants to make Eco-friendly, long-lasting battery, which is also light and small in size. Once developed, the batteries are expected to last for weeks without needing a re-charge. This could be a dream come true for Apple fans, especially iPhone users, as the latest iPhone 4S is dogged by battery drain issues.

Apple filed patent applications to US Patent and Trademark Office( USPTO), titled “Fuel Cell System to Power a Portable Computing Device” and “Fuel Cell System Coupled to a Portable Computing Device” recently.

Only time will tell if these cells will come to play … If they do, it won’t be anytime soon.

The other patent app is below!
