FuelCellSticker is a product currently in development by myFC AB and is envisioned as a flexible, ultra-thin power source for mobile devices such as cell phones, digital cameras, smartphones and even laptops. The device is a planar type, Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) that uses hydrogen as fuel and oxygen as the oxidant. The technology works by sandwiching a proton-conducting polymer membrane between an anode and a cathode.
FuelCellSticker acts as some sort of a power patch for a device, what with its 0.11-inch thickness and 0.2 ounce weight. Each flexible fuel cell has an output of 0.9 Watts at 0.5 volts and if, for example, you need power for a laptop, you can use as many of the FuelCellSticker as you need. The fuel cell technology isn't ready for mass production yet, although some fuel cell packs based on it are reportedly to be released soon. (story Link)
