Research into alternative power sources and the development of new technologies in this area has been intense by Universities and corporations. Some time ago we brought you news of electronics giant Toshiba’s Dynario mobile fuel cell.
Pictured, is the new Nectar portable fuel cell charger by Lilliputian systems. It can charge your smartphone, mp3 player or digital camera directly through the USB port. The Nectar uses “hot-swappable”, cartridges or pods containing Butane to produce power. This portable fuel cell charger is due to be released later this summer and is rumoured to cost around $300 with the pods costing around $10. It’s definitely not an affordable option to charge your USB enabled devices.
However, there are solutions close to hand with the Duracell Portable USB Chargers. They are convenient, handy and definitely affordable. You can read more about these chargers in our previous posts, “Stay Connected with the Duracell Portable Charger” and “The Most Powerful Duracell Portable USB Charger“. The 3 hour charger and the 5 hour charger provide upto 3 hours and 5 hours, respectively, extra talk-time in smartphones.
