Angstrom refuelling station///Angstrom

Angstrom Power announced that the company will launch two products early in 2006: the G2 micro-hydrogen charger and the R1 refuelling station.

The G2 charger, intended primarily for demonstration and evaluation, will be among the first demonstrations of handheld hydrogen powered devices in the world.

Angstrom’s portable G2 micro-hydrogen charger device will be a two-watt, five-volt fuel cell system with on-board hydrogen storage and power conditioning electronics. Among the unit’s features is a USB connection, which permits the convenient recharging of portable electronic devices including cell phones, PDAs and digital cameras.

Angstrom’s R1 refueling station will be used to refuel fuel cell devices (including the G2 Micro-Hydrogen Charger). Up to three devices can be refuelled simultaneously and be ready for operation within minutes. The R1 refuelling station can be used together with fixed hydrogen sources.

Dr. Ake Almgren, CEO of Angstrom, said: “We are excited about our technology, but we are even more excited to start bringing the technology into products and getting them into the hands of real users.”
