PowerTrekk is the world’s first portable fuel cell charger for consumer use that runs on ordinary water. Just add water to the PowerTrekk puck and you will never be out of power no matter how far away from an electricity grid you are. PowerTrekk will be showcased at CES 2012.
Stockholm, January 3, 2012 – Millions of people worldwide lack connection to the electricity grid from time to time. Swedish fuel cell pioneers myFC is now launching a unique solution to this problem – PowerTrekk, a cutting edge product that uses clean fuel cell technology which efficiently converts hydrogen into electricity. Users simply insert the PowerTrekk puck and add ordinary water to provide instant power on the go.
“PowerTrekk Water Charger gives your mobile phone power anywhere at any time”, says Björn Westerholm, CEO at myFC. “From now on, you do not have to rely on having an electricity grid nearby.”
Unlike solar chargers, fuel cell power is reliable and quickly generated. The speed of charging is not impacted by weather or solar position. Furthermore, there is no power degradation like there is with batteries.
“The launch of PowerTrekk marks a paradigm shift in fuel cell technology and at myFC we are very excited to bring this cutting edge product to the end consumers”, says Björn Westerholm, CEO at myFC.
Millions of people worldwide lack connection to the electricity grid from time to time.
