Angstrom Power Inc. of Vancouver has developed “EverOn™”, a technology that offers twice the run-time of batteries and only takes 10 minutes to charge.
The trial lasted 6 months with Motorola MOTOSLVR L7 handsets and the devices did not use the battery, but relied on the power from Angstrom’s platform which is comprised of a novel fuel cell architecture, innovative micro-fluidics and a revolutionary refillable hydrogen storage tank. The results showed twice the talk-time of the equivalent batterypowered devices in side-by-side testing.
“As consumer demand for smartphones and multimedia devices grows, so does the need for efficient powering solutions that help enable “always on” experiences.” said Jerry Hallmark, Manager, Energy System Technologies, Motorola Mobile Devices business. “Motorola is working with Angstrom to develop fuel cell technology that will support the increasing energy demands of next generation devices.”
