 Kraftwerk Fuel Cell


With portable electronics sucking all of your battery packs dry wouldn’t it be nice to have something that doesn’t take many hours to charge up? That is where the Kraftwerk Fuel Cell comes in. Fill it up with some off the shelf camping or lighter fuel in about 3 seconds. This isn’t a quick and dirty project, it has been in development for 7 years and it has 27 patent applications.  The Kraftwerk had a lofty goal of $500,000 and has already surpassed that by over $200,000 with 42 days left in the campaign. Surprisingly this device will be ok to take into the cabin of an plane! It will be nice to see this type of device become popular as a battery power portable power source.

“kraftwerk is a fuel cell power generator. Based on our unique and award winning microtubular metallic fuel cell technology, kraftwerk directly transforms gas into electricity. The user fills gas into an integrated tank. Whenever power is needed the gas goes into the fuel cell and is converted directly into electricity. A standard 5V USB plug allows you to connect all your electronic devices supported by the USB standard (smartphones, cameras, flashlights, …).”

    You should’ve mentioned from the beginning that it’s a Kickstarter project.
    That would’ve saved me the time reading it.
    It’s most likely a USB power bank in a fancy housing and with a fake LPG inlet.

    LOL CYK, I am sure there will be some knockoffs that do just that. Shake flashlight anyone?

    This thing is only 2W, so 400mA @ 5V. Not much use to me.

  4. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Ben,

    It would be interesting to learn more about the 10W max. If it could do something like 5 watts for many hours and 2 watts continuously that would be a step in the right direction but I haven’t seen any specifics about that.
