During the 2007 Korea Electronics Show. Sam sung Electro-Mechanics announced that it has developed a micro-fuel cell and hydrogen generator that runs on HO. And it even showed a working prototype of the new &quot;Micro Fuel Cell&quot; which works with the Korean version of the Sam sung SIGH-I (I wouldn't mind to test it as well). According to Sam sung, the micro-fuel cell can generate up to three watts of electricity which is enough to be used in mobile devices. The new fuel cell could power a handset for 10 hours (talk time, standby time?), twice as long as rechargeable batteries.&quot;</em></p><p><img alt="" border="1" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/spt/auto/1192554830.usr6.jpg" /></p><p>I know these things are coming but there just seems something odd about filling up your phone with water like a squirt gun. The other issue is the gas production. The FAA is looking into these things and from what I have read, may very well approve them for use on the airlines.</p>

water? Of all the things to power my gadgets, I never really figured on water. Perhaps because usually these two things don't play nice together. So why would I want to keep a tank of water right next to my phone? That's like asking to dunk your phone in a puddle. :D
