Angstrom Micro-Hydrogen Batteries

Angstrom Micro-Hydrogen Batteries. Angstrom has announced a global first with the completion of a six-month test of fully integrated fuel cell-powered mobile devices. This revolutionary power platform was successfully integrated into MOTOSLVR L7 handsets for the trial, with no modification to the outside dimensions of the devices. The trial devices did not rely on the use of any battery - instead, they drew power from Angstrom’s Micro Hydrogen platform, which is comprised of a novel fuel cell architecture, innovative micro-fluidics and a revolutionary refillable hydrogen storage tank. Angstrom has demonstrated research results showing twice the talk-time of the equivalent batterypowered devices in side-by-side testing.

Angstrom is currently collaborating with world-leading battery manufacturers, portable electronic device makers and mobile service providers towards the commercialization of its Micro Hydrogen technology.

The Micro Hydrogen, a concept by Angstrom Power, is a combination of many factors including a refillable hydrogen storage tank, fuel cell architecture and micro-fluidics. Angstrom has been testing the prototype on Motorola Slvr L7 phones. The technology can reportedly double the usual talk time and full recharge the battery within ten minutes.

Offering twice the run-time of batteries and with recharge times on the order of 10 minutes, Angstrom’s EverOn capability promises to supplant the lithium ion batteries commonly used in today’s portable electronic devices. Just don’t look for those anytime before 2010, which is when Angstrom “hopes” the first commercial phones equipped with the fuel cells will be available.
