The myFC PowerTrekk is the first portable fuel cell charger that runs on ordinary water. By using advanced fuel cell technology to convert hydrogen gas into electricity, myFC PowerTrekk can directly charge mobile phones and other USB compatible electronic devices such as digital cameras and GPS units. The hybrid myFC PowerTrekk can also store electricity in its efficient, rechargeable lithium ion battery until you need it.
The fuel cell inside the myFC PowerTrekk is a completely passive system. Without fans or pumps, the fuel cell silently converts hydrogen into electricity via its Proton Exchange Membrane. To power the fuel cell with hydrogen, simply add water to one side of the device and a myFC PowerTrekk Puck cartridge to the other side. myFC PowerTrekk Pucks are composed of a non-toxic solution containing 5 grams of sodium silicide.
Water reacts with sodium silicide to produce heat and an inert mineral called sodium silicate. Hydrogen from the water is unused in this process and is released for consumption by the fuel cell. The chemistry of the process is safe and the only bi-product from the fuel cell is a little water vapor. Expended myFC PowerTrekk Pucks can be recycled as metal waste.
The myFC PowerTrekk Fuel Cell produces 2.5 watts at 5 volts, and runs for over two hours on one Puck. At 5 volts, myFC PowerTrekk will fully-charge all USB standard mobile phones, GPS, and cameras, and can also trickle-charge higher wattage devices such as an iPad or Kindle.
