The Mobion fuel cell developed by MTI Micro is a green solution to battery technology. In fact the Mobion Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) technology is much greener than batteries that use lithium for power plus the DMFC lasts hours longer in small electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops and digital cameras.
Methanol, once known as wood alcohol, is used to supply the power for the Mobion which can easily be recharged once the methanol runs low. The methanol can also be generated from biofuels for pennies on the dollars making it a green and cheap alternative.
The Mobion is being heralded as a personal power generator in that it is portable (you are not tied to the electrical outlet) and will provide electricity to any device with a USB port. The methanol cartridge is hot swappable meaning that even if your device is plugged in, it will continue to play as you put in a new cartridge (in a pear tree – hey it’s the holidays).
