The HydroPak product combines Horizon's fuel cells with Millennium Cell's Hydrogen on Demand storage technology.
The HydroPak is designed with a common AC outlet and two USB connectors to charge or operate low power devices such as portable lights, notebook computers, portable televisions and ad hoc communications networks for more than 14 continuous hours when needed. The planned retail pricing of $400 for the system and $20 for the disposable cartridges will make this solution attractive to both professionals responding to emergencies, as well as consumers desiring power for both backup and recreational needs.

Beginning in February 2008, Horizon and Millennium Cell plan to demonstrate and sample limited numbers of the current pre-production unit to OEM's, distributors, and key military decision makers. The current design of the unit is in the process of evaluation by Underwriters Laboratories and it is expected that listing will be received by mid 2008 on this product. Subsequently, several thousand units will be manufactured by Horizon for sale in the second half of 2008. Millennium Cell will have sole responsibility for all sales of the HydroPak power generation system in the United States.

"We are excited about the prospects for the HydroPak line of products, beginning with the commercialization of the first water-activated portable power system in 2008 and followed shortly by others in 2009. We believe that these fuel cell power products possess a potent combination of convenience, performance and economics that are unique in the marketplace and will fill a void that exists today," commented George Gu, CEO of Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies.

Horizon is continuing its path from Fuel Cell Toy car to real world Fuel cell applications. Way to go!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
