Powertrekk Fuel Cell Charger Keeps You Juiced Up

I am an indoor person most of the year, thanks to the blistering heat we get half the year here in Texas. If you live where you can get out and enjoy the outdoors, but are geeky and need power for your gadgets, Powertrekk has a new fuel cell charger for you.

The charger is a two-part system and has a hydrogen fuel cell and a battery pack in one. The battery pack can be charged and used by itself or you can use the fuel cell to charge the battery and use that power on the go. The battery also acts as a buffer for the fuel cell charger.


The device has a USB port and can charge any gadgets that need a USB port for power. That means the iPhone and many other gadgets should work with it. The only catch is that you will have to take your charge cables with you. To get more power from the fuel cell the user will need water and a new fuel cartridge. Pricing for the Powertrekk and the refill cartridges is unknown at this time.
