MTI Micro unveils Mobion fuel cell technology

June 21, 2004 – MTI MicroFuel Cells Inc. has launched fuel cell technology designed to provide cord-free rechargeable power for industrial, military and consumer electronics.

MTI Micro’s Mobion direct methanol fuel cell technology has been integrated into radio-frequency identification tag readers that are planned by year’s end for retail, distribution and warehouses. The technology has been demonstrated and integrated in two concept models, a handheld entertainment system and a combined PDA-mobile phone.

The Albany, N.Y.-based firm said Mobion eliminates the water management “micro-plumbing” around the fuel cell that typically required for the chemical reaction. MTI Micro’s patented system manages the water inside the fuel cell with no pumping required.
