Cell phone manufacturers are still working on finding alternative sources of energy such as the Sun, Earth’s heat, wind and chemical reactions. We guess the Taiwanese invention of a cell phone charger working on hydrogen fuel belongs to the latter category.
According to the scientists involved in the project, the high-tech gadget can charge up your phone for two hours, but so far they haven’t specified batteries with what kind of capacity they are talking about. Still, the developers claim the chargers are highly efficient and can fully replace all existing power adaptors by 2012. Moreover, they are environmentally friendly, because hydrogen is completely and easily recyclable.
The development of a hydrogen charger has been backed up by the Taiwanese government. This is because the country is under high pressure to develop new energy sources, as it imports about 98 percent of its energy. Finally, the technology can make the country a global leader in terms of utilizing and providing eco-friendly power solutions.
