It’s not been solong since A Japanese Company developed a new Technology to charge a cell phonewith boiled water. A pot of water is heated over a campfire, and then Hatsuden-Nabethermo electric cookpot turns heat energy from boiling water to electricalenergy or electricity. Electricity generated in this way then feeds into Smartphonesor other digital devices via USB port.
And recently similartype of Technology has been developed by a Swedish Fuel Cell Company Called myFC.But the function and operation between these two is different. This newtechnology can generate electricity by converting hydrogen of water and then itwill be used for charging mobile devices. MyFc is claiming this portable devicecalled PowerTrekk will be the world’s first ever portable fuel cell charger andthey are launching it very soon.
BjörnWesterholm, CEO at myFC said, “PowerTrekk has a competitive edge overtraditional portable chargers. Fuel cell power is generated immediately andcharging is not impacted by weather or the position of the sun, as for solarpanels. Compared to battery powered travel chargers, PowerTrekk offers reliablecharging as the fuel packs do not deplete as batteries do.”
According to companyPowerTrekk will be available in pocketsize and light in weight. The device ismade from foils and adhesives, Fuel cell Stickers from flexible assembly. Inaddition fuel cell also doubles up as portable battery pack that can beoperated on its own as a ready source of power. The fuel cell inside PowerTrekkis completely passive system. It can silently converts hydrogen intoelectricity via its proton exchange membrane without any fans or pumps. Chemistryprocess is completely safe, controllable and eco-friendly. The only byproduct fromthe fuel cell is a little water vapor. For the operation process, hydrogen mustbe supplied to the fuel cell and the fuel cell must be exposed to open air. Thefuel cell enables instant charging from an exhausted battery state without anywall charge. User insert fuel pack and water then connect their devices toPowerTrekk via USB port.
