A hydrogen fuel cell phone has been unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas by Motorola and Angstrom Power Incorporated. Angstrom’s Micro Hydrogen fuel cell was used inside a MOTOSLVR L7 cell phone to demonstrate that no modifications to the dimensions of the phone needed to be made.
The micro hydrogen fuel cell is geared towards replacing lithium ion batteries in small portable devices such as cellular phones. The Angstrom fuel cell lasts twice as long as any other lithium ion batteries currently on the market.
The micro fuel cell can also be recharged in only 10 minutes. One of the downsides for cell phone consumers has always been the short battery life and long recharge times. Angstrom’s Micro Hydrogen fuel cell is looking to give the customer what they’ve been wanting for several years now.
With the introduction of the iPhone and other smartphones that require increased power to run the graphics and video applications, the Angstrom hydrogen phone power system is set to compete head on with rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
