ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the wide applications of micro fuel cell systems on portable electronic devices. They are claimed to be more advantageous than batteries due to their capacity to generate energy. To answer communication problems between the user and fuel cells, the Smart Battery Data Specification (SBDS) has also been created. It is used in portable electronics to interface batteries to a system. The Extended Battery Life Initiative likewise sponsored an additional specification to SBDS by suggesting new criteria and modifications. Moreover, it discusses possible conditions that would be satisfied in various transition states of the fuel cell operations.
