Water-Powered Cell Phone


Wow.. Samsung's latest technology make it possible for a cell phone to be powered by water.

"When the handset is turned on, metal and water in the phone react to produce hydrogen gas," explained Oh Yong-soo, vice president of Samsung Electro-Mechanics' research center. "The gas is then supplied to the fuel cell where it reacts with oxygen in the air to generate power." Other fuel cells need methanol to produce hydrogen, while Samsung's needs only water.

Since the micro-fuel cell can generate up to three watts of electricity, it could be used in mobile devices, the company said. The new fuel cell could power a handset for 10 hours, twice as long as rechargeable batteries.

That's technology.. Really amazing!

That is very interesting! Water powered cell phones ... can they make ones that are recharged by oxygen? Now that would be functional!
