The Lilliputian Systems Fuel Cell Charger
The fuel cell device from Lilliputian is like a thick smartphone and the cartridge is about the size of a cigarette lighter. Through its built-in USB port, you can charge any device. The firms haven’t yet disclosed the price of either the fuel cell device or its cartridge. But Lilliputian Systems’ Mouli Ramani says that the cartridge will be priced a few dollars, which will be almost equal to the price of a Starbucks coffee.
According to Ramani, a single cartridge can charge a smartphone for 10 to 14 times. After draining the charge, the cartridge can be recycled through municipal recycling process, he adds. The fuel cell device has been advertised as a great pick for often travelling mobile phone users. Business executives, students and leisure travelers can carry the device to charge their smartphones anytime, anywhere.
Lilliputian has realized the groundbreaking fuel cell device employing a solid oxide fuel cell membrane on a thin silicon wafer. The MIT spin-off company developed the path-breaking method and developed the highly efficient fuel cell device. It is when several silicon firms repeatedly failed to build better fuel cell tools.
