Intelligent Energy, the international power technology company, today announced that its innovative Upp™ personal energy device has achieved IEC 62282-6-100 micro fuel cell technology certification and ISO 16111:2008, which together allows the product to be distributed internationally.
Building on the company’s innovative proprietary fuel cell technology, Upp – a consumer electronic device - can charge and power USB-compatible mobile electronic devices, such as smartphones, feature phones, eReaders, tablets, portable gaming consoles and digital cameras as fast as the mains. Upp typically provides five charges to even the most demanding, power-hungry smartphones.
“Upp packages decades of industry leading research and delivers feature-rich capabilities that now - with industry certification - makes it an ideal mobile companion product for the consumer on the go,” said Amar Samra, Managing Director of Consumer Electronics, Intelligent Energy, “Following its international introduction, and with successful trials by both corporate customers and consumers in emerging markets, we believe this innovative product is capable of demonstrating its durability, reliability and dependability when delivering instant energy anytime, anywhere”.
“It’s a really exciting time for Upp and our partners in the emerging and developed markets; the product is now industry certified and available to our partners internationally,” said Julian Hughes, Group Corporate Development Director, Intelligent Energy. “Upp has been designed, tested and independently verified to meet the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to allow the product to be carried in the cabin of aircrafts by passengers and crew.” he continued.
Upp – the clean alternative
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.
Upp companion mobile app
The Upp mobile app communicates with the Upp product and includes a number of proprietary features such as:
- Smart Charging - automatically powers down when a connected USB device is fully charged
- Eco Mode – allows users to select the battery level they want to charge to, to simply top-up to optimum levels rather than fully charge
- Find Cartridges - uses GPS to locate the nearest local Upp cartridge exchange outlet when needed
- Flight Mode - prevents continuous charging when phone is in airplane mode
- Cartridge Level Indicator – indicates remaining energy left for peace of mind
- Your Energy – a window on your remaining battery level and what it can be used for (e.g. calls, music, browsing and video)
- Support – direct access to product support pages and customer service
- Personalisation – allows users to name their device
Upp is compliant with standards IEC 62282-6-100 and ISO 16111:2008 as well as EU and US EMC directives. Carriage on aircraft is subject to local safety and security procedures.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
