Water-Powered Cell Phones
Here’s one indication that water will be a more expensive commodity in the future — water-powered batteries for the mobile phones.
Korea mobile manufacturer, Samsung, has recently unveiled at the 2007 Korea Electronics Show a new source of fuel-cells. The new fuel cell, powered by H2O, could power a handset for 10 hours — almost twice as long as current rechargeable batteries.
These water-powered handsets are expected to hit the market by 2010. Users will only have to change the hydrogen cartridge when the energy is depleted. Isn’t that gonna be costly?
However, they add that later handsets will be developed that don’t need the hydrogen cartridges to be changed, and would only need to be filled with water.
Ok, the model in the picture above is holding a Samsung SGH i600, methinks. w00t, I’m getting an H2O fuel-cell soon.
Reminds me of that Filipino scientist a few years back who claimed to have invented a way to power cars using plain H2O (some re-engineering with the car engines). Where is that guy?
