The stand alone novel rechargeable micro fuel cell which can work for prolonged duration to meet the energy demands of low power electronics. The innovative solution can address the energy demand of every person on this planet.
Developed by CSIR-CMERI, MICRO FUEL CELL (1.5 V, 1000 mAh), can be made in the size of AA and AAA for applications where batteries are being used. Micro fuel cell is a power source for electronic devices that converts chemical energy into electrical energy. The scaled down fuel cells can be developed for use in electronic devices such as digital cameras, radios, toys and other low power applications. The developed micro fuel cell can generate 1.5 V, 1000 mAh per cell which can be stacked upon to extract more energy (~ 1W). The developed liquid based fuel cell can undergo in-situ charging-discharging process like batteries, eliminates the complexities associated with previous micro fuel cells and can contribute in the development of affordable and novel rechargeable batteries. The novel and cost effective rechargeable fuel cell can contribute significantly in the growing energy market of low power electronics.
