Cell phones with fuel cells?

The researchers at the Manhattan Scientifics Institute are currently working on a mini fuel cell that would soon, at least if the researchers had their way, be used in notebooks or cell phones and could then possibly supply such a device with electricity for months.

The chief developer, Bob Hockaday, sees a great future for fuel cells here, as these devices and future UMTS cell phones are switched on almost continuously and therefore need a long-lasting energy source. But analysts do not expect such mini fuel cells to be introduced quickly, considering that the automotive industry has been working on this technology for years and it is still not ready for the market.
