Sony Exhibiting Hybrid Fuel Cell Batteries in Tokyo

If you’re in Tokyo tomorrow, make sure to check out Sony’s exhibit at the FC EXPO 2009. The company will display the newest version of its hybrid fuel cell, which contains a Li-on battery and a methanol fuel cell.

Sony’s fuel cell originally showed up on our radar last May, but now the company has two models of the technology: a portable model that comes with a USB connection and leather lanyard, and an internal version that can be used like a normal battery. Both the internal and external batteries have enough juice to power a cell phone for an entire month.

The company hasn’t revealed a release date for the fuel cell yet, but you can bet they’ll be a big hit when they finally reach store shelves.
