Neah Power Granted US Patent for Fuel Cell Cartridge for Closed Liquid Feed Fuel Cell Systems.SEATTLE -- Neah Power Systems, Inc., a Nevada corporation A Nevada Corporation is a corporation chartered under the laws of the U.S. state of Nevada.
Nevada, like the state of Delaware (See Delaware corporation), is well known as a corporate haven. (Pink Sheets:NPWS NPWS National Parks and Wildlife Service (Australia) ) announces that it was issued an additional U.S. patent, U.S. Patent No. 7,105,245 titled "Closed Liquid Feed Fuel Cell Systems and Reactant reactant /re·ac·tant/ (re-ak´tant) a substance entering into a chemical reaction.
n. Supply and Effluent Storage Cartridges Adapted for Use with the Same." This patent helps secure Neah Power Systems' lead in micro fuel cells that use Neah's proprietary silicon-based design.
The cartridge system of a portable fuel cell is an important component to the overall value of a fuel cell. Unlike batteries, Neah fuel cells are designed to be "recharged" instantly by swapping replaceable fuel cartridges. End-users of mobile products powered by Neah fuel cells will achieve longer runtime by carrying spare fuel cartridges instead of the additional batteries and wall chargers currently used. Neah's fuel cell cartridges will be smaller, lighter and more convenient than the extra lithium-ion batteries currently used to extend runtime. This is particularly important for military and homeland security Noun 1. Homeland Security - the federal department that administers all matters relating to homeland security
