Fuel Cells: Automobiles and Smart phones

You must have heard that Toyota is makingĀ  automobiles to run on Fuel Cells.

ItĀ  is said that fuel cells will be much more efficient and practical than batteries. If the fuel cell technology becomes widespread, it means that technology could even be used with more devices, should shares laptop computers and smart phones

What is the advantage?

For one, fuel cells have the potential of reducing energy waste because of their higher efficiency and those helping resolve some controversial problems about the use of fossil fuels. Fuel cells can be fueled by some type of fossil fuel or possibly something that does not require the use of a fossil fuels shores. Fuel cells can work on straight hydrogen that can be made from water.
If your cellphone used a fuel cell you would carry a small cartridge in your pocket to recharge the fuel cell when it to rent out of energy. The cartridge could recharge the cell perhaps three or four times before the cartridge itself has to be refilled. And the cartridge is much faster than trying to recharge your batteries using electricity. The cartridge will recharge the fuel cell in less than a minute.
So when will fuel cells be available for smart phones? Actually, they already are available if you have an apple I phone. But the price is very, very high. But that could change next year.
