Brunton is marketing Horizon MiniPak fuel cells in the USA and launched what it dubs the Hydrogen Reactor at this year’s show.

Ryan Perry, Brunton's product category manager said: "We really consider it to be a game changer."

One cartridge can power a smartphone five to six times before it needs to be recharged in a separate recharging station that retailers of the product will carry or can be purchased separately. Brunton representatives said the company fielded thousands of orders for the product during the show.The Gear Institute called it "the power of the future," and Gear Junkie said it was "among the neatest items" it saw during the first day of the Outdoor Retailer show.

"Our concern is to produce as much as is demanded," said John Walbrecht, President and CEO of parent company Fenix Outdoor North America. “There's a lot of demand."
