Hydrogen Reactor from Brunton
Charging devices in the backcountry has taken a unique twist, or should I say splash, with the arrival of the Hydrogen Reactor. The Reactor combines hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, and aside from a potentially annoying misting sound, seems like a viable alternative for producing power in out-of-the-way places. Each Reactor comes with two Hydrogen Cores, equal to more than 30 AA batteries, and can be recharged. Each Hydrogen Core re-charges in one hour and can make up to six smart phone charges through a USB port. Available in October, along with other Reactor Series items, for $149.99. www.brunton.com
The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will also run in the Tribune.
