Mobion Fuel Cell by MTI Micro Is the Future of Green Batteries

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).

Hm, interesting! Do you represent the company or is this something you're just knowledgeable about? I agree lithium mining is not an Eco-friendly solution.

Hello, no I don't represent the company. I write and publish green news, product reviews and opinion on my string of eco websites. This is just a new product that caught my fancy.

I see. I hope this technology takes off!

I think this year and next year are going to be big for small fuel cell technology.
