A company has recently announced the debut of its innovative product, aiming to help us recharge our devices even when we're far away from any outlets.
Portable chargers have already been implemented on the market, but the water-powered fuel cell charger, launched by Sweden-based myFC, sounds good enough to raise the stake, Mashable Tech
According to the developers, PowerTrekk relies on advanced fuel cell technology which converts hydrogen into electricity, in a clean, efficient manner.
This path has been adopted and improved by other companies, but so far none of them has managed to change the way we recharge our phones.
The product introduced by myFC during the CES 2012 could succeed where others have failed.
The green gadget comes with two USB ports, a fuel-cell assembly and a compartment for the fuel-cell pucks. PowerTrekk transforms hydrogen gas into electricity, while only generating water vapors as a by-product.
It's safe, eco-friendly and reliable, our trust-worthy ally when we're on the run and conventional methods of charging phones are unavailable. Plus it's much more efficient than solar-powered competitors, that depend on sunny weather.
"PowerTrekk has a competitive edge over traditional portable chargers. Fuel cell power is generated immediately and charging is not impacted by weather or the position of the sun, as for solar panels. Compared to battery powered travel chargers, PowerTrekk offers reliable charging as the fuel packs do not deplete as batteries do," explained Björn Westerholm, CEO
It helps users gain unlimited access to energy, while following 4 basic steps. First, we have to remove tray system and insert fuel pack into fuel compartment.
Next, we have to fill the water compartment, close the lid and re-attach tray system. All we have to do afterwards is to connect our much-needed gadgets to the innovative PowerTrekk, using the USB-A connector.
Most important, the lightweight, pocket-size charger shows us the progress, indicating when the cell phone is completely charged. It's an ideal gadget for outdoor enthusiasts and for those who are not currently connected to the electricity grid.
Apparently, the portable charger will be launched on the American market soon and will be priced at $299 (€235).
