Samsung lighter fuel phones23/05/06 Permalink
I've just read an article on computerweekly.com which is saying that Samsung are developing technology with MTI MicroFuel Cells to enable mobile devices to be powered with Fuel Cells.
According to this MTI will look into producing a methanol based approach which will produce electricity to run mobile phones.
MTI's technology harnesses a chemical process that combines water with methanol, a type of alcohol also known as methyl alcohol, to produce electricity. It's really just basic chemistry, but not always easy to set in motion. Often the presence of water requires a complicated set of micro-pumps and pipes to move the water to where it needs to be. MTI has developed a way to do it without the need for a pump, and without the need to carry water in the first place.
