Fuel Cells/Portabls

NASAs Jet Propulsion Lab develops new portable fuel cell technology. A team of researchers have designed a compact, flat fuel cell for portable applications. The power source uses the new lightweight monopolar flat pack technology and is roughly the size of two paperback books standing tall, back-to-back. It operates efficiently at ambient temperature without a fan, unlike conventional designs. (06-02BD75-8)
