We have been hearing about this sweet technology from past so many years, but no useful fuel-cell product has ever hit the market. Not any more. Next month, Toshiba will begin the production of fuel cell in Yokohama. The fuel cell will be of type direct methanol fuel cell. One of the products that will be produced will be Toshiba’s portable fuel cell. Unfortunately, since this is still its early stages, the prices are going to be too high for the average consumers costing between $100-$500.
The fuel cell technology has a lot of potential to completely change the way we use our devices. With fuel cell, it will be possible to have very light weight devices with days and in some cases, months of battery life!
