MTI Micro announced a prototype embedded fuel cell today aimed at use in the handheld GPS device market. The fuel cell is called the Mobion and provides three times as much energy to a GPS device as four AA batteries do.

MTI says that on a large, color screen GPS device that means 60 hours of continuous power. That is enough power for weeks of use not the days of use common with AA batteries. The Mobion GPS prototype also includes a USB port allowing the device to provide power to recharge mobile phones or any other device that can recharge via USB.

"MTI Micro is exploring the integration of our Mobion(R) platform with GPS devices as part of our strategy to bring micro fuel cell technology to a wide range of portable consumer electronic device market segments," said Peng Lim, President and CEO of MTI. "Battery life is a key issue with handheld GPS devices, especially as manufacturers add advanced energy-hungry features to new models, such as larger full color screens. Our Mobion(R) powered GPS prototype will provide handheld GPS users such as hikers and campers, travelers, boaters, pilots and other sports enthusiasts the peace of mind of much longer usage time and will help them do away with the expense, bulk and environmental unfriendliness of conventional batteries."

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.
