Panasonic fuel cells for notebooks expected in 2012

Posted on Tuesday, October 21 2008 @ 08:25:39 CEST by

The fuel cell reportedly could power your average laptop for five hours on 50cc of highly concentrated methanol. When you start to run low, all you would need to do is squirt some more methanol into the cell to keep working.

The only fuel cell available for consumers right now is the Medis Power Pack. It is far from powerful enough to run the average laptop and is really only suited to charging a cell phone or MP3 player. The Pentagon recently awarded a $1 million prize to the winner of a competition to produce a wearable power system weighing under eight pounds and capable of 96 hours of run time.
