ULTRACELL CORPORATION ANNOUNCES PORTABLE METHANOL FUEL CELL SYSTEM, August 24
UltraCell Corporation announces a new fuel cell power source for portable electronic devices that has twice the energy density of lithium batteries.
UltraCell's reformed methanol fuel cell (RMFC) technology uses a revolutionary micro reformer to generate fuel-cell-ready hydrogen from a highly concentrated methanol solution. This new portable power system has the power density of a hydrogen fuel cell but uses readily available, low cost methanol fuel in a convenient, compact package. Weighing just 40 ounces, the power unit is about the size of a paperback novel.
