Samsung Develops H2O Fuel Cell
The future operation of cell phones may be by water. Not to be outdone by Toshiba and their Methane PMP, Samsung Electro-Mechanics has come up with a micro-fuel cell and hydrogen generator that run on H2O. When the phone is turned on, the metal and water inside produce a hydrogen gas which reacts with oxygen to generate up to 3 watts of electricity. This means one can get up to 10 hours of use, about twice as long as rechargeable batteries. Although still a prototype, we are looking forward to the day when we can be rid of batteries that go down when we need our phone the most. Expect the technology to be perfected by 2010.
