Handheld fuel cell charger by Lilliputian Systems and Intel to hit markets soon
The dawn of handheld fuel cell chargers are here, as fuel cell maker Lilliputian Systems ties up with world renowned geniuses of their trade, Intel. Heavily investing in Lilliputian, a Wilmington, Massachusetts based firm, the company will start off manufacturing silicon wafers for fuel cells. Powered by butane cartridges, these portable fuel cells are roughly about the size of a deck of cards. They have enough juice to power up portable music players, smartphones and other small devices using a USB connection. The device known as the USB Mobile Power System will hit market shelves soon with replaceable lighter-sized butane-filled cartridges too. These cartridges will cost a few dollars and are recyclable, adding a greener note to the whole concept.
Expected to cost around $99, the USB Mobile Power System is the best way to remain all juiced up on the go!
