Water Power!

Our lives have become so heavily influenced by the use of electronics. In the United States, if you don’t have a laptop or a cell phone, you’re classified as an official weirdo.

Because of this bout of consumerism, especially in the realm of gadgets, it’s really hard for us eco-savvy folks to be completely green. Plus, we love our iPads, we really do.

But what if we told you that you could charge your phone with a tablespoon of water?


More details on how it works  from the product manufacturers:

At the heart of myFC PowerTrekk is myFC’s proprietary FuelCellSticker technology. Made from foils and adhesives, these FuelCellStickers form a flexible assembly less than 2.75mm thick. Since the hydrogen fuel can be supplied from several alternative sources, the system is “flexifuel”.

The fuel cell inside myFC PowerTrekk is a completely passive system. Without fans or pumps, the fuel cell silently converts hydrogen into electricity via its Proton Exchange Membrane.

The chemistry process is safe, controllable and eco-friendly, and the only bi-product from the fuel cell is a little water vapor. To operate, hydrogen must be supplied to the fuel cell, and the fuel cell must be exposed to the open air.

Generating electrical charge without also generating pollution? Yes please.
