ROHM Solid Hydrogen Source Fuel Cell

rohm-hydrogen[CEATEC 2013] Is the world suffering from a shortage in energy? It really depends on where you are living at the moment, and one of the major drawbacks that many of us face these days in the use of our gadgets happen to be the battery life – or rather, the lack of it. ROHM has come up with what they deem to be a revolutionary power generation system that will use just the right amount of hydrogen in order to produce the required amount of electricity, now how about that for efficiency?

It is touted to be a safe and new solid hydrogen fuel source, with a reactivity level that is around 1/1000 that of powder. How is it safe, you ask? Well, hydrogen is only produced when it reacts to water, and the only byproduct is not an explosion, but slaked lime – or calcium hydroxide if you want to get technical about things. ROHM has come up with a solid hydrogen source canister and a cartridge, where the latter will offer a full smartphone charge per use, while the former can power a 32” LCD TV for 3 hours. These are single use solutions that might come in handy during emergencies or when you travel, and hopefully it will be able to create a market of its own eventually with a justifiable cost for consumers.
