Video: Lilliputian debuts SOFC for your iPhone, other electronics

By / January 11, 2013

At $299 this is pretty pricey, however, I think the Nectar Mobile Power System, based on a mini solid oxide fuel cell that Lillipution Systems introduced this week at the CES show, could represent something of a breakthrough for consumer thinking about impact what larger-scale SOFCs could have once the technology matures. What I mean is that,…
