Microfuel Cell Facilitates Omnipresent Computing – Gizmo Watch
“Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco included a section on technologies that will help extend the computing time of laptop computers. Medis technologies fuel cell power products have several key competitive technological advantages over virtually every other portable power technology under development for handheld electronic devices. While other portable fuel cell solutions are only prototypes, the Medis 24-7 Power Pack will be widely commercialized later this year. The 24-7 Power Pack provides sufficient energy to provide up to 30 hours of talk time to an average mobile phone or 60-80 hours of play time for an average iPod. The power is sufficient (1 watt)) to operate, and charge, multiple times, a wide range of the standard and advanced portable electronic devices in the market today.
It is a portable power system designed to keep your handheld devices operational while you are on the go. The Power Pack has enough power to drive many handheld devices when the battery is nearly depleted and it will also function as a portable charger. What’s next from the power house is a product that will be a 20W device capable of powering a laptop. There is no information as to when it will be out, but seeing their present product work 24/7, the day is not far when powering laptops will get simpler.”
