Samsung premieres fuel cell external notebook battery

Samsung Fuel Cell Battery

Samsung on Wednesday added to its slew of recent announcements by revealing one of the first publicly available fuel cell battery packs for notebooks. The external adapter is intended for Samsung's Q35 ultraportable and uses a direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) to extend the system's existing battery life by as much as eight hours, greatly exceeding the usual increase given by lithium-ion packs. Although larger than most external batteries, the design uses its shape to its advantage by doubling as a small stand to elevate and tilt the Q35 for a more comfortable angle. A cap lets the owner refill the cell with methanol when the existing capacity runs dry. Exact availability has yet to be determined.
