Fuel Cells To Power Your Gadgets

mti micron fuel cell charger for gadgetsMTI Micro has unveiled a new fuel cell charger to power up your gadgets. This little device uses replaceable fuel cartridges. MTI Micro is not the first, and hopefully won't be the last, company to go to the fuel cell for portable convenient power. The MTI Micro Mobion prototype works with cartridges of the liquid fuel methanol. Each cartridge offers about 25 hours of power. When it's depleted, users just pop it out of the charger and replace it with another one.

The Fuel Cell Charger is set to be available as a product by end of 2009. This definitely seems like a move in the right direction. So what does this 25 hours of power get you - 10 charges for your cellphone and enough power for your favorite MP3 player to play 10,000 songs or 100 hours of video! Phew!
