Portable Fuel Cell Charger Provides Instant Power Anywhere
PowerTrekk is a pocket size, lightweight charger for users who spend time away from the electricity grid. Providing instant power anywhere, PowerTrekk uses advanced fuel cell technology which cleanly and efficiently converts hydrogen into electricity. With its rugged, waterproof casing and robust technology on the inside, PowerTrekk is designed to match demanding requirements.
PowerTrekk is a 2-in-1 solution that is both a portable battery pack and fuel cell. The portable battery pack can be operated on its own as a ready source of power or storage buffer for the fuel cell. The fuel cell enables instant charging from a depleted battery state without ever needing a wall charge. Users simply insert a fuel pack and add water. To charge portable devices - for example mobile phones, cameras and GPS devices - users connect a device to Power Trekk via a USB port.
"PowerTrekk has a competitive edge over traditional portable chargers. Fuel cell power is generated immediately and charging is not impacted by weather or the position of the sun, as for solar panels. Compared to battery powered travel chargers, PowerTrekk offers reliable charging as the fuel packs do not deplete as batteries do," said Bjorn Westerholm, CEO at myFC, the company behind PowerTrekk.
is a Swedish fuel cell technology company that develops solutions for powering portable electronics. Having secured numerous patents around proprietary shape-flexible fuel cell systems with record high power density, PowerTrekk
is the first commercial portable charger using myFC technology. Since the hydrogen fuel can be supplied from several alternative sources, the system is "flexifuel". The chemistry process is safe and eco-friendly, and the only by-product from the fuel cell is a little water vapor.
