Angstrom Power to Offer Longer Battery Life

Motorola l7


Angstrom Power has developed a technology that offers twice the run-time of batteries and with recharge times on the order of 10 minutes, Angstrom’s EverOn capability promises to supplant the lithium ion batteries commonly used in today’s portable electronic devices.

Angstrom has announced a six-month test of fully integrated fuel cell-powered mobile devices. This power platform was successfully integrated into MOTOSLVR L7 handsets for the trial, with no modification to the outside dimensions of the devices. The trial devices did not rely on the use of any battery – instead, they drew power from Angstrom’s Micro Hydrogen platform, which is comprised of a novel fuel cell architecture, innovative micro-fluidics and a revolutionary refillable hydrogen storage tank. Angstrom has demonstrated research results showing twice the talk-time of the equivalent batterypowered devices in side-by-side testing.

Angstrom is currently collaborating with world-leading battery manufacturers, portable electronic device makers and mobile service providers towards the commercialization of its Micro Hydrogen technology.

“As consumer demand for smartphones and multimedia devices grows, so does the need for efficient powering solutions that help enable “always on” experiences.” said Jerry Hallmark, Manager, Energy System Technologies, Motorola Mobile Devices business. “Motorola is working with Angstrom to develop fuel cell technology that will support the increasing energy demands of next generation devices.”
