Fuel Cell Tech for Smartphone Power

Lillipution Systems Explains Technology Behind the Nectar Power System

The CTO of the Nectar Fuel cell gives us some more insight into the technology and current capabilities of the device, which came from his work at MIT. The device can power smartphones, tablets and similar devices that use USB power. The unit is approved for carry on use on aircraft, but is not legal for checked baggage.

The system consumes air and fuel, but generates very little heat. It cannot be placed in a sealed bag, as it needs air. Whenever you need power- up to two weeks- a $10 butane cylinder will provide the power you need.

The device is available at Brookstone, at the $300 price point.
