Upp is a consumer electronic device that can charge USB-compatible electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

The Upp fuel cell takes hydrogen provided by the Upp cartridge and combines it with air to produce electricity. Users simply need to connect the fuel cell to a replaceable cartridge.

The Upp companion mobile app communicates with the Upp product to automatically power down when a connected USB device is fully charged. The free Upp companion app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or from Google play for Android devices.
