Millennium Cell to Demonstrate Fuel Cell-powered PC

Millennium Cell, Inc. recently announced it will be demonstrating a “next-generation” hydrogen energy system product prototype to power a notebook personal computer (PC) at the Intel Developer Forum, being held this week at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, CA.

According to Millennium Cell, the system combines the company’s portable hydrogen fuel source technology with a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell to power an IBM X40 ThinkPad notebook PC. Millennium Cell said the fuel supply is contained in a sealed, single-use cartridge, with the flat-panel passive fuel cell affixed to the back of the PC’s screen.

“At the forum, we have an opportunity to show that our technology works and is appropriately sized for laptop use,” said Millennium Cell president and chief executive officer H. David Ramm. “As important, we gain further insight into the required performance specifications first hand from device manufacturers.”
