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.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
