Antig and AVC to present fuel cell for notebooks next week

Posted on Saturday, March 04 2006 @ 00:20:03 CET by

Next week at CeBIT a production-ready fuel-cell for notebook computers will be presented by Antig Technology and AVC Corp.
According to the two companies, the CD-ROM size fuel cell will fit within the media bay of a notebook PC, replacing the drive with additional battery power. AVC said it has contracts in place with unnamed Taiwan ODMs -- the companies that actually produce the notebooks that later carry a top OEM brand such as HP or Dell -- for production in the second half of 2006.

The methanol-powered Antig fuel cell provides 45 watts of power on a single "tank" of methanol, and weighs 3.7 pounds (1.7 kg). In total, the additional power should be enough to operate the notebook for eight hours, AVC said, which was responsible for engineering the fuel cell into the notebook housing.
Read on over here. Eight hours of battery life would be nice but the weight of this fuel cell is quite high..
