REI to start selling Powertrekk Fuel Cell Charger

REI will begin selling myFc’s Powertrekk’s Fuel Cell Charger which debuted at CES 2012.

The mobile charger uses sodium silicide cartridges from SiGNa Chemistry that react with Hydrogen from your Nalgene bottle’s good friend H2O to produce electricity. Pour some in the Powertrekk’s water reservoir, and you’ve got hours of battery life where you likely don’t have a 3G signal anyway. This is due to the 1500 mAh internal rechargeable battery inside the device. Adapters for iPhones and micro-USB smartphones will work with the lime-green device, and it should charge an iPhone about 1.5 times over.
