Intelligent Energy has unveiled a working iPhone 6 prototype that runs off a built-in hydrogen fuel cell.

The prototype uses a rechargeable battery and patented technology which creates electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen.

Intelligent Energy managed to incorporate the fuel system into the current iPhone 6 without needing to alter the size or shape of the device. The only cosmetic differences are rear vents that allow an imperceptible amount of water vapor to escape.

On the prototype iPhone, hydrogen gas is refueled via a modified headphone socket. Intelligent Energy is developing a disposable cartridge that would slot into the bottom of future smartphones and provide enough hydrogen-release powder for a week of smartphone use without recharging.

Interestingly, the company is said to be working closely with Apple. CEO Henri Winand refused to comment on rumors of Apple's involvement but told The Telegraph, "To our knowledge this has never been done before. We have now managed to make a fuel cell so thin we can fit it to the existing chassis without alterations and retaining the rechargeable battery. This is a major step because if you are moving to a new technology you have to give people a path they are comfortable with."

Mark Lawson-Statham, the company's CFO said, "Our view is that this is a couple of years out but really it’s about how quickly does our partner want to press the button and get on with it?"

We'll let you know if we hear any more details on whether Apple has partnered with the company. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

I was going to say where do you get the hydrogen but if apple does do this that won't be a problem after a few months But the reason cars are using electric rather than hydrogen is safety the hydrogen will get blow up whereas the electric batteries catch fire But phones don't get in crashes like cars so that won't be such a problem

Hydrogen don't blow up real good is is far less dangerous than gasoline if stored in a proper container, the fire in the hindy was not the gas but the "paint or coating of the air ship" this propaganda bout hydrogen has been brought to you by the xon Valdez and the tex gulf The biggest problem is that water will rust a conventional exhaust fast but a simple ceramic coating or ss would make exhaust last a life time then Midas and speedy would be crying The built in obsolescence is the key make it disposable or we will all be out of Jobs electrolytic water and you got H and O add a compressor and you can charge your canister
