Many consumers and manufacturers are coming to feel the urge to recycle phone batteries, as the smartphone lifespan decreases. Many users upgrade their handsets before the power storage unit has expired, making it quite a waste when these functional components are simply tossed out or set aside.

There have been a few clever concepts cropping up lately that take advantage of these pieces of hardware, but this BETTER RE product may be one of the most aesthetically pleasing. Designed by Enlighten, this is an eco-friendly external battery pack that's made from composite and wood materials and equipped with an affordable pre-used fuel cell.

Users will love this product for its sleek and minimalist look, and its green functionality. The creation of this device is a direct response to manufacturers and consumers with priorities surrounding resourcefulness, economy and sensitivity towards the environment.

The product also enables users to stay powered up when they're off the grid. Bonus! It should no surprise that the BETTER RE won a Red Dot Design Award, a Spark Award and a Samsung Tomorrow Solution Award.
