PowerTrekk is a Fuel Cell Driven Power Source for Mobile Phones and Other Electronic Equipment. Unlike Other Portable Chargers, PowerTrekk Provides Instant and Reliable Power Anywhere, Making it Ideal for Outdoor Enthusiasts and Business Users in Emerging Markets.
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, February 11, 2011 - 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
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.
myFC 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 bi-product from the fuel cell is a little water vapor.
