    REI Members get back an estimated $ 15.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    • Simply place 1 of the 2 included hydrogen fuel cores into the charger to power USB devices such as smartphones, tablets, GPS, UV water purifiers or rechargeable lights
    • Exchange empty for full cartridges and keep charging without waiting; each core is capable of up to 6 iPhone recharges
    • No toxic chemicals—solid-state cores recharge from water with no natural discharge
    • 2 cores produce power equal to more than 30 AA batteries, putting out 2 amps at 5 volts—enough to charge a smartphone up to 6 times
    • The Brunton Hydrogen Reactor Charger uses cores that can be recycled and do not lose their capacity over time; recharge cores with the Brunton Hydrolizer (sold separately)

    by fromOff the Grid Ordered this item in October 2013 and I finally got it in December. I had been looking for something other than solar and this sounded great. My greatest concern was traveling on a plane with it. I didn't have any issues with it in my carry on bag flying to and from the island of Kauai. The cores screw right in and a red light came on. Eventually a blue light comes on and it's ready. I charged my phone and Steripen on and off over 10 days. I didn't have any issues till the last day. I'm assuming I screwed in the hydrocore too tight and a piece of the inner threading and a spring came out. I returned the item and will be getting another one. The folks I went camping with really loved this device.
