MTI Micro Unveils Portable Fuel Cell Charger
December 13th, 2008 by Ariel Schwartz
If you’ve been itching for a portable methanol fuel cell charger, MTI MicroFuel Cells has you covered. The company’s prototype Mobion charger comes with a USB interface and provides up to 25 hours of power with each removable cartridge. A single cartridge can charge the average cell phone over 10 times, play 10,000 songs, or take over 6000 pictures.
The device is made with MTI’s Mobion Chip, which is based on 100% methanol fuel and can run in a range of temperature from 0°C to 40° C at any humidity level.
Don’t worry about carrying around a flammable substance (methanol), either— MTI says it isn’t dangerous packaged in a sealed, plastic container.
MTI Micro plans on launching a commercial product by the end of 2009.
