ABSTRACT
The article reports that Angstrom Power Inc. has announced the completion of a six-month test of fully integrated hydrogen fuel-cell mobile devices in Canada. This new device will be offering twice the run-time of batteries and with recharge time at about 10 minutes. This fuel storage device is designed for tight integration with the fuel cell and features metal hydrides, a metal that bond hydrogen molecules directly to the surface of the material. The company is also collaborating with world-leading battery manufacturers, portable electronic design makers and mobile phone service providers toward the commercialization of its Micro Hydrogen technology.
