emerging markets, we believe this innovative product is capable of
demonstrating its durability, reliability and dependability when
delivering instant energy anytime, anywhere".

and developed markets; the product is now industry certified and
available to our partners internationally," said Julian Hughes (News - Alert),

The Upp fuel cell takes hydrogen provided by the Upp cartridge and
combines it with air to produce clean electricity on demand. Users
simply need to connect the fuel cell to a replaceable cartridge to
achieve instant energy for their devices.
